Default Become a Developer

I was bored tonight so I stumbled upon something cool. Go to Settings> About Phone> and tap on build number. It begins to warn you that you're about to become a developer. After you become a developer you have lots of options under the developed options screen.

Yep, this was a change when Jelly Bean was released. Previously it was always there.
I really only need it to allow USB debugging.

When I got my Maxx right after activation it offered up the OTA. I did not investigate anything I just installed the OTA.

When I looked at the options for the first time the Developer options entry is present and Developer options is On.

If I go to About Phone | Build number it reports "No need, you are already a developer."

So ... it was the default option on my Maxx.

it was on by default, but when i got to build number andpress on it, it says "press x many more times to become a developer"

that's why this is interesting. also the developer options were on before i took the OTA. I delayed taking for about a week to see if we'd get root. we didn't so i took it.
