    Verizon Unlocked S3

    Hello. Just wondering if anyone can tell me if an unlocked Verizon S3 can work for other carriers? Such as Straight Talk, Simple Mobile,????
    I don't have an account at Verizon but have a chance to buy an unlocked and rooted (no rom picked yet) Galaxy S3 at a good price.
    But I need to know if it work on another carrier. Thank-You Thanks for your time...

    International GT-I9300
    I believe the VZ phone is proprietary and does not have an unlocked SIM

    To do what you want you will need the GT-I9300 which is the international version.

    Thank-You all. That is what I needed to know.

    I read that is can e used with international sim cards now. Was just wondering why it wouldn't work here.
    Thanks for your fast replys!

    I don't know if this will help you, and I myself did not fully read the thread but this was over on XDA for unlocking a VZW S3 for use on other networks. [WIP] Unlock VZW GSIII for use on other networks (No data on GSM currently) - xda-developers

    For Straight Talk you'd really want a GSM phone or something that's directly compatible with Sprint's 3G network because Straight Talk uses AT&T for GSM phones that you bring over and Sprint for CDMA data.

    In the past VZW phones were able to work on Metro PCS with a flash from a Metro store.

    The easiest conversion to prepaid for VZW phones is PagePlus as they use Verizon's network (no LTE tho)
