    So simple question are the new phones that you pay full retail for from T-Mobile factory Unlocked, so it means there is no junk third part software on them?

    I was interested to know because my son is thinking of going over seas for graduation and if that is the case, I might get him a Galaxy Note II from T-Mobile to use, but I do not want to get one if it has all the crappy 3rd party software and T-Mobile junk on it?

    Never Mind, I just read on their site, it comes pre-loaded with T-Mobile 3rd party stuff, ugh, I guess I have to buy from Amazon for $619 then

    iPhones do not come with any crapware installed, so there's no need to worry about them.

    Edit: My VXZ iPhone nor did my ATT iPhone have any crapware. I suppose you should be able to remove any T-Mo apps that may be preintalled.

    If he's going overseas you're better off buying the international unlocked version of whatever phone you want anyway. Especially so if you want to get rid of all of the bloatware without having to do any rooting around in the device.
