    Hey all I was wondering if you could drop some knowledge my way. *I shattered the screen on my S4 which I had rooted and am going through the warranty process through square trade. *Looks like i'll get a check to buy another device. *I have Att but may switch to Tmobile at the end of the year. *So I want to buy an unlocked phone and was wondering where the best place to buy one might be? *I called Tmobile to see if I could buy their version of the S5 since the bootloader is unlocked and can be rooted much easier, the ATT version is locked down from what I have read. *But when I called a T-Mobile store they said they won't unlock it for 6 months even if I pay the full price. *I thought that was weird. *And half of the ones on ebay have bad esn's or imei #. *which can't be used on t mobile eventually. *I'm not set on that phone but I do like their hardware. *They have a play edition M8 out which is a possibility but no play s5 yet. *I hesitate to buy a nexus 5 because I really like removable storage and batteries since I use those features a lot. *Plus I would guess the nexus 6 to be out soon. *Xperia z2 is an option too but haven't held one yet.

    Have you checked Amazon? I did a quick search and found a couple. Perhaps that's an alternative source for you to get that unlocked S5?
