Now according do this it is just a normal Note 3. I have another carrier in it with LTE working and everything is working.
BUT When i boot the phone there is a t-mobile boot animation. (thats all i can find of t-mobile in and on the phone)
I know T-mobile does this with all there phones and my last Note 2 had this to and i could just Root and Flash all i wanted like it was a normal version. Now can i also do that with this Note 3. And how can i know the difference between a T-mobile Note 3 and a International One.
Its probably only the T-Mobile bootanimation which is added. Should be fine to root it and flash custom roms on it if you want. Search in the T-Mobile thread for more info http://forum.xda-developers.com/note-3-tmobile
to be sure.
