What woud you suggest for someone in our predicament?
You can probably unlock the bootloader and root the phone, despite it's carrier locked. That won't remove the lock tho and you won't be able to use it on another carrier just like that.
On the other hand you can always buy an unlock code off ebay for 2 euro or so.
Mental issues lead to the use of long signatures
Care much for receiving Thanks?Bitching at the others about it doesn't help, instead better stfu and gtfo.
