Tweet from Motorola says unlocking older models "not currently in the plan"
The wording of Motorola's response does leave some hope that the plan might change in the future, but for now those with Motorola phones that aren't terribly dated, like the Motorola DROID 4, will have to live with a locked bootloader not to mention those with older devices like the Motorola DROID 3 and the Motorola DROID BIONIC. While Motorola didn't explicitly say the words, the implication is that all newer models will come with an unlockable bootloader.

Truth be told, that's kind of what I expected... That once the bootloader unlocking service was up and running it would cater only to phones released afterwards.
It's still a business and you can bet your bottom dollar that they want you purchasing a new handset over holding on to an older one for a little while longer.
Either way, I'm still happy as a piggy up to it's tits in mud with my Maxx.
