looking to purchase the One m8, and most of the unlocked ones on ebay are verizon.

I see the boot loader is locked, any hope for that or should i look for a developer edition one ?


edit:
I am from Brazil and i need an unlocked version.

The Dev editions phones won't work on Verizon. If you're a VZW customer, you don't have a choice. As far as the bootloader, there's always hope.

Why would you buy a phone from an American carrier if you live in Brazil? Just order the Unlocked or Dev Version from HTC directly.

Yeah, if the Dev edition one works on your carrier there, I would go with that. Verizon's M8 is SIM unlocked, but it's S-On'd.

Can't hurt to check on Swappa, Ebay, etc. There may be some dev editions devices available (though it's not likely being so soon after release).
