Motorola offering unlock solution for the Motorola RAZR, Verizon and U.S. not included

We already knew this was coming, but we couldn’t say for sure when the first unlock solution would go online and which handsets would be supported. The Motorola Droid RAZR is the first Motorola handset to offer a bootloader unlock solution but if you live in the US, you’re outta luck. Big Red has decided you shouldn’t be able to modify your handset to your needs, no matter how much you want it.

Owners of the RAZR outside of the US should be able to unlock the bootloader, however, the ultimate decision is up to your carrier. Motorola also told Ausroid.net that it will look at the sales volume, carrier, and hardware in order to decide whether a phone gets Ice Cream Sandwich’d or not.
