Question before ordering a Z2

Hey all, I am very interested in this phone, but I have a question...

I had the Z1s on T-Mobile, and as far as I remember, it wasn't rootable, and I couldn't put my custom rom on there. Is this possible with the Z2? I would love to have a stock Google rom on there if possible, as I am not a fan of the Sony skin and bloatware, but I am loving the phone design, and camera.

Just make sure you buy one with an unlockable bootloader (not carrier branded) and root is no problem

I was planning on ordering through Amazon, I believe it says it is unlocked.

Will that work on T-Mobile?

I'm also looking at getting a Z2 to use on T-Mobile in the US. I hope this unit you linked to is bootloader unlockable. Is this the lowest price you have found? I'm searching high and low for the best price before pulling the trigger.
