Default Worth the potential headache?

I am wondering if it is going to be worth the trouble of picking up the note 3 from t-mobile at full price and either wait for the 40 days (I think it was) or just root the thing and buy chainfires app to unlock the thing so that I can use it on AT&Ts network.

The reason for this is so I can get to the boot loader so I can root. I am tired of being pushed around by the carriers and being told what I can and cannot do with my devices. But that is for another thread...

I'm not trying to be funny but what exactly is your question? I read it all as a rant.

The question: is it worth the headache to buy the t mobile note 3 seeing as its bootloader is unlocked so that I may use it on at&t?
