Do carrier devices bought from Samsung have different restrictions/capabilities from unlocked devices bought from Samsung ?
@userQenWJUcC9h Carrier devices bought from Samsung have the Carrier firmware installed. So you get all of the Carrier's special apps for marketing, as well as their splash screen, etc.
Unless something has changed recently, the Carrier devices bought from Samsung were carrier locked.
I bought the T-Mobile version since that's my carrier but Do you know if I'll be able to use any other carriers SIMs in this device, at will? It won't be locked only to T-Mobile will it?
This seems really dumb to me. But yeah, probably network locked. The easiest way to get around this is by buying an unlocked device. Carrier branding exists purely to make it easier to control how you use your phone. Upsides are... Hm
