I'm on unlimited data, coming from Galaxy Nexus (Boot unlocked, rooted, running AOKP), prior to that I had a OG Droid (boo tunlocked and rooted). I just got the S4 to replace the very damaged GNex. The S4 is on VRUAME7. From what I have read, there is no way to unlock the bootloader. I can use safe strap, and then rom alongside the original OS. This seems very convoluted and not really what I want. Now there is 4.3 upgrade as well. Probably little chance that we will see unlocked bootloader.
So, Do I deal with TouchWiz as Samsung and Verizon want me to use it, or do I send it back, keep unlimited data and buy another GNex, S4 developer, or another phone like Moto X, HTC that can be unlocked?
