    It isn't the bootloader. The bootloader is just for flashing custom ROMs. You can root without a custom ROM.

    AT&T and Verizon have something else on their OS so when it is rooted, it will give you a screen telling you it is rooted and won't boot.

    The Note 4 had a locked bootloader and root was achieved on that.
    You're partially correct. Note 4 was rootable in the beginning, but the bootloader was not locked in the beginning. It wasn't until a later update that the bootloader was locked and then the note 4 became unrootable.

    Luckily I'm with sprint. Sprint has never locked the phone down.

    The bootloader was locked out of the box for me and the root achieved was with Lollipop and a locked bootloader.

    The unlocked bootloader is necessary to load custom ROMs not to root. They were clear, they could get root, they couldn't unlock the bootloader.

    How did you get it for only $233? I only managed to get the $400 off, which made the Note 5 $296. I already paid off the $296 so that was my final cost.(plus sales tax) I didn't even activate the line and Veirzon didn't charge me any monthly fee on that line.

    $233 or $296..... I'm still trying to figure out why Verizon or Samsung gave such a HUGE discount on the brand new Note 5.

    It was Verizon. I got some off with TMO and a free year of Netflix, which seems to be the norm with the release of Samsung flagships and TMO.

    No. Because Verizon sucks. Lol. I wouldn't buy a phone from a company that deactivates half the features of a device.
    Half the features huh? Mild exaggeration....

    ok.. I missed that Samsung promotion, so my Note 5 was $296 on device payment. I paid that off fully last week. There was no activation fee because I never activated the phone.

    HOWEVER, I just noticed that Verizon gave me an extra $100 account credit 3 days ago for porting in a prepaid Tracfone number. So now my Note 5 is actually $196.
