I understand that the T-Mo version has its many advantages of having its unlocked bootloader, DEV support, SIM unlock, etc...

Price point aside, are there any major advantages/disadvantages between purchasing the T-Mo(N900T) or the Intl version (N9005)?

Every stat comparison seems to be similar, ROM support and all the freq bands are there.

Looking for some definitive answers from the community before spending big bucks on a new unit.

I must be missing something then. According to the description on NegriElectronics it shows one model (N9005) as a 32g LTE model?

On my way to the T-MO store then.

Just so I get this straight,

1. Purchase the N900T.
2. Purchase a $10 or $20 SIM card. (then insert it and use the phone) Required?
3. Bring it home and use the service on CellUnlocker.net
4. Wait for the unlock codes then ENJOY! (Change APN settings)

Optional;

Follow the rooting/recovery guides in the T-Mo thread.
