Dear T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S7/S7E users,
I have created this discussion to make a central location for us to discuss unlocking the bootloader on the G-930T/G-935T.
For those who do not know what I am referring to, please read the following email to John Legere from myself:
I am writing this email to you in hopes that at the executive level, T-Mobile will do right by their customers.
For the past several years, Samsung Galaxy devices on Tmobile have shipped with an unlocked bootloader, allowing T-Mobile users and Android enthusiasts to run (and test) custom software which helps better the Android community as a whole. For me, this was the one and only reason I left Verizon Wireless years ago, so that I could continue to enjoy my device and test applications freely on T-Mobile.
This brought thousands of other Verizon and AT&T customers over as well, as we had all believed in John Legere and his "Uncarrier" mission. Sadly, with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Tmobile users have lost the ability to OEM unlock their device and have joined the ranks of Verizon and AT&T.
I am writing to you urging you to do right by your customers and unlock the Galaxy S7/Edge. However small the root user community may be, we tend to be the loudest and most passionate Android users in the world. If we cannot unlock our devices through T-Mobile, we will be forced to go elsewhere. This would be a sad day for tmobile considering many of your own employees belong to this community.
I know this cannot be high on the list of action items your team has on their plate, however I urge you to do right by us and do what needs to be done to put this to rest. Please do not join the ranks of Verizon and AT&T by allowing these devices to be locked down like fort Knox.
