    If I purchase a new, unlocked phone to use on ATT, will they still add thier bloatware and junk on it? How does getting updates work? Will they try to update it and add thier junk?Is the phone usually pre rooted if it wasn't purchased through a carrier? Thanks.

    If it's not purchased through AT&T you won't have their bloatware.

    I'm not sure about if their updates add the bloat, if they do its only on the OS update. Even still I don't think it would get added seeing as how they can't really add stuff to a device that never came from them.

    In some cases, depending if it's bought new unlocked the bootloader will already be unlocked. With my past experiences with Samsung, a bootloader unlock won't even be necessary (unless the note line is different from the galaxy s line).
