I got a free AT&T GS-4 recently. I paid the $325 termination fee and switched to Walmart in the first month. hence I saved about $300 compared with buying a Google Play phone. AT&T unlocked my phone but obviously not my bootloader.

I am toying with the idea of suing AT&T to FULLY unlock my phone including the bootloader. I am not a professional lawyer, but sometimes suing people is fun and educational. I suppose I like to sue the way other people like to hack phones.

Would any other AT&T GS4 phone owners who have paid termination fees like to join in? I cant represent you or accept money from you since I have no law license, but I can be the lead plaintiff, pay the filing fee, serve the summons on AT&T, and write all the legal papers.

Would anyone be interested in supplying technical data on the MF3 bootloader? Remember in order to carry my burden of proof I would have to prove what we all know about MF3 to a jury that cannot program a VCR. In reality a case like this would never make it to a jury. AT&T would bust my balls with motions and then settle, but it would be so much fun making them remove MF3 from my phone!

Before you even purchased the phone a simple search would of brought up the information that it is unable to be unlocked. Even so after you purchased it you still had a return window if you were not satisfied with the phone. Mod Edit- UN comments removed
