Default Streak purchase ATT or Dell - 07-16-2010, 11:58 AM

Is it better to purchase dell Streak from Dell direct or ATT when available?. I am not concerned about Streak being unlocked, I use ATT, but does ATT do things to the OS that limits 3 rd party apps, or anything else that restricts the Streak? ATT should release 2 weeks before Dell website, but I am willing to wait to purchase from Dell if ATT restricts the use.

Thanks very much for any responses to help my decision.

I would have thought that until they start releasing some information you're not going to get a clear answer.

In the UK O2 does nothing to the useability of the phone, it's just locked to that provider and has their splash screen when switched on.

I agree with nascar24usa, SIM lock and a 2 yr contract would not hurt me at all since AT&T is the only carrier here in rural AL so I'm pretty much stuck with them anyway. So if that's all they do to it, I'll take whatever discount/subsidy they want to give and get it. I just wish they would hurry up!
