Hi guys

I'm from Europe but I have someone in USA who can buy me SAMSUNG NOTE 3 from VERIZON carrier.Their model I think is N900V.
The problem is that I have read thet Verizon's NOTE have LOCKED BOOTLOADER and on internet I read that they are last carier that makes KIT KAT update for their phone.
What is your experience with VERIZONS NOTE 3 and what are the drawbacks of locked bootloader?Do they always for their phones make updates last ,of all the mobile carriers in USA? Or maybe I should get NOTE # from other mobile carrier and is there a possibility to find somewhere in USA an international version of SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 3 SM-N9005?

Thank you

I believe the Verizon phones use different cell bands and may not get the best reception in other countries than the U.S.?

Lokced bootloader means no kernal hense no aosp/aokp/cylutom recoveryband more vzw always gets updates last and they can be used over seas with apn edits and international sim but will not get 4glte speeds as far as I kniw only 3g or hspa+

Do or do not there is no try

Out of all the choices for you... 900V Verizon is the worse choice!
Second worse is 900A ATT
Tmobile & Sprint has unlocked bootloader, I think!


Hope that helps!
