Which carrier doesn't lock their bootloader? AT&T locks and Verizon too. does Sprint or T-mobile lock bootloaders? i have thoughts about changing the carrier after this cursed 2-year contract.

I believe all US carriers lock the boot loaders. Not sure about Sprint, but depending where you are Sprint has poor service coverage at least for me. T Mobile locks there bootloader also.

Not all phones for Tmobile. The Tmobile S4 isnt locked, although I do know the Z1S is locked.

Well, I know that Rogers SGH-I337m (Canadian Version) is unlocked, but some others like AT&T and Verizon are locked (Canadian versions also).

I thought there was a list somewhere around here....I think I was just looking at CF Auto Roots page and saw that some are locked.

So at least, do they leave the bootloader unlocked for reference phones and GPEs?
