Uncarrier 5 should be unlocked phones free of carrier bloatware [opinion]

Ever since the Uncarrier movement, the company’s made it clear that it’s trying to get rid of customer “pain points”. In other words, areas of the U.S. smartphone market that are restrictive and end up creating a poor customer experience, or frustrating people.
