    Lightbulb S3 how to unlock?

    My uncle just gave me a Samsung galaxy s3 (sch-1535) for Verizon.. I turned it on and it says custom on the screen, but since it doesn't have a sim card it doesn't let me get past the screen. I have AT&T, I want to know how to unlock the phone so I can use it for AT&T and what does that custom mean? I'm completely new to Samsung and i wanna try this phone out instead of my iPhone...

    Thanks

    You won't be able to use it with att. If you wanted to use it you would need to activate it with Verizon.

    But this phone has a slot for a sim card? I used my uncles sim and got to the home screen now, but there's no way at all to unlock this and use it for AT&T ? I was reading around and I thought I would be able to, since it has a sim card

    Unfortunately no, you have a Verizon model S3 that will only work on Verizon's network.

    If your uncle was cool with it you could sell it and use the money to buy an S3 for AT&T.

    That's what I'm thinking of doing, cause its basically useless now lol.. How much does this phone go for? 400? 500? It's basically perfect and almost brand new

    I have an iPhone 4 and was looking forward to the upgrade to this one, instead of getting an iPhone 5.. But I should just sell this one and get a S3 for AT&T now I guess.. Aslong as I can sell it for enough lol
