    No it wasn't unlocked ran to my favorite TMO store and they gave me a micro for free. The rep was freaked couldn't believe I had won this phone. Very impressed hope he joins us.

    Got the device unlocked
    Got the device rooted
    need to activate the sim card

    I'll get back to you but I love the look and feel

    So far I really like it. It's much lighter than the nexus, a tad bigger in pocket but manageable. It's very smooth and I love the keyboard. Haven't played too much with it yet but will in the coming days.

    This thread makes me SMH and laugh.

    Decided not to root the HTC. She's happy with it.
    The sound is pretty good for a cell phone. Never been a fan of Beats because it really doesn't do much, but it does sound good with those speakers.

    I still can't navigate through it. Too used to vanillaand touchwiz.

    Think that I could use one but I'd have to take a long time to get used to it.

    I've had more time to play around with phone, it's really smooth, great battery life, updated/downloaded apps and was still at 62% after work.

    Case is very attractive makes it bigger but not by too much. Not the color I planned but definitely doable. I'm very happy with both the phone and case. Wasn't expecting either so soon but happy they came.

    Got mine as well today it's what I chose, I was getting pretty used to the thin look. Now that the case is on it looks and feels like a log but I think it will be fine. Went to Tricked out and got a screen protector put on also.

    I have been through 3 or 4 Custom ROM's and found the one I was, set up just like the S 2. You are right as always Del this thing is screaming fast.

    Yes Jay and Roger, unlocked, rooted, flashed a custom rom, able to lock in LTE, although it's not available in this area. Device is screaming fast.

    Used some different sources to unlock and root, everything went smooth. Still haven't decided whether I like the bulkiness of the Defender case but it looks like it will protect very well.

    Made a mistake flashing a custom kernal, slowed the device down quite a bit and when I tweaked it as recommended everything when stupid. Finally got it back into recovery flashed my backup and all is well

    Thanks again PinStack you are awesome
