Default Bootloaders

Are the bootloaders locked on this device? I'm thinking about jumping from at&t to t mobile.

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.

Thank you. Good to know. I'm doing the jump next weekend.

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?
