Turned out that root and CWM, all that good stuff is entirely possible, even on the locked bootloader, so if you are interested in tinkering with the handset, visit the thread below...

Ive never had warranty voided for a root even though they say it voids it they have no way of knowing or you can always unroot so that is not a problem. And rooting a phone is def not wasting your time you need to check out all the possibilities My favorite is backing up my apps not only does it back up the apps but the saved files in the apps so if you change your phone anythings saved be it games files notes or anything you dont have to start from scratch.

while not rooting is fine for many users, you're certainly missing out on a lot of things.

With each article I find I'm liking verizon less and less. The only locked bootloader on a SGSIII in the world?! That's an infamita!!

Please Moto, use your partnership with verizon to make one more nexus for us......
