It is my understanding that unlocking your handheld without permission from your carrier has become illegal. You could only unlock your device with your carrier's permission. In any case, I think it is still kind of early to come up with a way of unlocking the device without the device being available to the masses.

T-Mobile and Sprint to do not lock their bootloaders. AT&T only started doing it lately and it's pretty random. They did lock the S4 bootloader, so I'm expecting the N3's to be locked as well. Verizon always locks their bootloaders. There's underground pre-planning going on right now, but the devices will need to be in hand to start tinkering effectively.
My is rollin' wit...

Default SIM Unlock

If you are talking about SIM unlock I believe both will be unlocked according to the description on negrielectronics.com

If I'm not mistaken, the FCC pushed for the reversal of this.

Regardless, if I own the device, I have no problem breaking a law I feel is unjust and unlocking it. Not to mention the fact that I do not reside in the US, so the law would not apply to me. I plan on unlocking mine on day one. Either via some "special menu" which is often found or a paid service.

I may be incorrect but I did read somewhere that they were making different versions for each country and that the one version cannot be used in the other countries.
