I wouldn't trust a VZW store rep to know the technical specs of the phone, much less whether or not the phone is going to be unlocked.

I think it's important to look at what's happened with the Atrix and the Photon, which are the AT&T and Sprint versions of the Bionic, respectively. Motorola quietly released (or maybe they were leaked?) unlocked firmware images for each of those phones, while maintaining an official stance of "these phones are locked phones."

I haven't read enough to know if the unlocked firmwares were official releases, or if they were leaked, or if Motorola just quietly released them, so that they could appease the hardcore users who wanted an unlocked bootloader and would be able to find and flash them, without making it widely available to the kind of people who might royally screw over their phones.
