[PETITION] Possibility to unlock the Bootloader on our Nokia 7 plus

In my opinion everyone should be able to decide to have the bootloader unlocked, or not - no matter for what reason. This should be a default option - on every phone.


There may be people who do not care about that, but I think especially owners of the Nokia 7 plus - including me - want to have the possibility to unlock the bootloader.


Because of that I've decided to start this petition. I hope many of you will support this - with the score that HMD soon open up the door and give us unlimited control over our device.

    I'm in. Nokia could really be the next nexus (or surpass it) if they make their phones more development friendly :-D

    Really agree, bootloader unlocking should really happen here. Looking forward to this being implemented

    I agree, should be unlocked. After all we bought the phone and should be able to access it fully.

    I like my device secure as I like doing mobile banking and other financial stuff, plus I like knowing my contacts list is safe, unlocking a bootloader makes a device less secure, as far as I know.....I loved my iPhone device's because they were vanilla user interfaces, secure, locked and efficient.

    I moved to Android again after being disappointed with my Samsung galaxy s7 , I love this Nokia and it's way better than my last Moto G5s , which was a sluggish heap of Lenovo plop.
    Nokia might have its flaws but which company if you're being honest doesn't have some issue or other.

    Safety is my number one priority on any phone, not the ability to install a custom rom or add silly launchers or cracked apps

    @SteveQ77 I agree that unlocking makes a device less secure. No one is disputing that. Those that unlock their bootloaders know they'll be compromising on security.


    If/when Nokia allow it, no one is forced to unlock the bootloader. It's a personal choice.


    All we're asking for is the option to unlock it. The final decision to unlock lies with the end-user.

    Steve you can keep your bootloader locked, the reason we want atleast why i want it to be unlocked is because after 2 years when im still using this phone i would like to be able to flash custom roms if nokia stops updating it, this is also one of reasons i like an iphone but i cant afford it but I cant afford it.

    Oh I already knew you meant you want it as an option and it's not a requirement to unlock, I get that.

    And I personally think I like this Nokia more than my iPhone 7 which was my last apple, I've switch between iOS , Android and Windows too many times... I prefer iOS lightening port to type c but again personal preference.

    I'm Mr boring, no funky wallpapers just black or green , not non Google store apps, no third party launchers and I ignore all numbers that aren't on my contacts list :-) I could use a feature phone and do most of the time, my Nokia is my mobile banking , maps and snaps with a few emails and that's it

    @SteveQ77: like >user1525814929284< already comented - no one has to unlock the bootloader. But for those want to, there should be the possibility to do.

    It is similar to cars... For some people it is enough when a car is driving and they feel save ... the others like fast cars and tuning them...
    Should now everyone who wants to tune their cars first start a petition to obtain permission to open their cars bonnet!?

    @ SteveQ77 : like >user1525814929284< and >user1526052316168< alredy commented - no one have to unlock their bootloader if they don't want to... but those who want to, them should be given the possibility to do it.

    Should now everyone who wants to tune his car at his own risk  first have to start a petition to get the permission for opening his cars cowling?!
