Question [Q] Which LG G# comes with unlocked bootloader?

I am an AT&T subscriber and in the market for an LG G3. The AT&T version comes with a locked bootloader which means I will probably never be able to install a custom recovery and flash CyanogenMod on it which is a must for me. I realize that other versions will not work with AT&T LTE and I am completely fine with just HSDPA+ - which versions of the phone support AT&T HSDPA+ and come with unlocked bootloader?

Thank you. Does it come network unlocked? I.e. can I put my AT&T sim in and use it?

No, but I've heard of getting unlock codes for as little as $6 on Ebay.

Plus Tmo is rumored to start a new thing soon where they put an unlock app either on the phone itself or on the Play Store and you can unlock it right there.

You'd want to get the Tmo version, though, because it's fully compatable with AT&T's LTE bands.
