I wouldn't want it from a mobile provider... you'll need to flash it with a custom ROM to get all their garbage off it (Vodafone load screen or whatever, Warriors updates, Stuff app, Herald app, other stuff I don't want being randomly installed as phone updates).

On top of that, you pay a higher price for it- around $200 more for the S3 a few months ago- so you're essentially paying for spam and bloatware you didn't ask for and can't uninstall without installing a custom ROM. 

For a phone like this, I'd rather use the manufacturer's ROM and updates. But that's just me being paranoid.

Telecom posted a video on their YouTube channel yesterday showing lockscreen security I think it was. And 2degrees leak came thanks to an update to the Snapper application. Plus it's starting to show up on retailer's websites
