    Hello Mark and Welcome! The different model numbers desiginate the carrier version and maybe color of the phone. That's pretty much it I believe.

    I don't know why they have different designations but a rose by any other name....

    They're the same phone platform but each is a little different. Probably the biggest is the International s3 has a quad core processor where the NA has a different dual core. Aside from that there's some differences in radios depending on the network (gsm and cdma). What software the phone comes with will vary; Verizon is notorious for their worthless bloatware.
