Dev ed vs retail ed
So my Note 2 fell out of my pocket this AM on the golf course and I'm unable to track it down using GPS, alarms, etc. Pretty much it's gone and I'm pretty sure someone has picked it up and pocketed it or it got ran over by the lawnmowers. That said, rather than get a locked down insurance replacement, I figured I'd go ahead and upgrade to the Note 3. As I have unlimited data, I'll be paying full retail on my device. So all that said, a couple of questions:
1) is there any reason not to get the dev edition instead of the standard retail edition? Do most ROMs support both?
2) Are these phones unlocked internationally (both dev and retail) for both data and voice?
3) Has the carrier check on the wifi hotspot been disabled on custom roms?
4) Anything else I should be aware of for dev ed vs regular?
