    First off I am new to this forum.
    I am enjoying learning and thanks to you all.

    Also a noob to androids
    I have a S4 on SGH 1337 and with AT&T as carrier (not under contract but the phone was locked to AT&T.

    I ordered an unlock code on line from a recommended porvider and have successfully unlocked the device. .
    I inseted my SIM card from Thailand and proceeded to make a few calls to be sure .

    I here of and am beginning to research rooting.
    My question
    If the phone is (now) unlocked, does that mean the boot loader is also unlocked?

    This becomes a issue as I eventually want to eliminate anything to do with AT&T when I return to Thailand.
    In later posts I will have many questions and many thanks in advance

    Garvin

    Thanks

    Umm, no it doesn't mean that the bootloader is unlocked. That was just a carrier sim unlock.
    For info on what you can do regarding root & custom recoveries, roms, etc, you need to look in the carrier specific forums for your device.

    If you can root it you can get rid of the bloatware. Check out the root threads for your device.
