T-mo S5 is unlocked bootloader. I switched from AT&T to T-Mobile and have never been happier, and I am a AT&T employee.

When you made the jump did you have att next? If so did you pay extra to give in your att phone back?

I had a Note 3 that I paid outright for. when you cancel with AT&T you just need to pay off the balance on your phone with the next program.

Also T-Mobile will buy that AT&T phone from you I do beleive if you don't want to keep it so you probably wont have to pay anything out of pocket, I know t-mobile pays to get you out of a contract, I don't know if that would cover the balance of a next plan?
