Default Samsung Devices on T-Mobile; QUESTION!

I've been thinking of switching to T-Mobile. If I switch and get the Galaxy Note 2 (which will come with 4.3 installed), will I be able to root and flash like normal (CWM recovery and flash aosp 4.4.2 ROMS) OR will I be limited to safestrap and 4.3 TW Roms like we are on the Verizon models? I thought Verizon was the only carrier that still locked the boot loader.

Probably best to search for your answer in the T-Mobile Note 2 forum or ask your question there:

Shouldn't we treat this world like the garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?

Yes, should go to Tmobile forum, but you should be in luck, since other carriers are not like stupid Verizon, you should able to unlock and flash custom rom http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2634341
