    Verizon Galaxy S3 Unlocked

    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. They have a Verizon account...

    But I need to know if it would work on another carrier. Thanks for your time...

    It all depends on who the independent uses to piggyback on. I honestly have no idea if any of those "carriers" use Verizon's airwaves; but that would be the absolute MUST for it to work.

    Thank-You Wera. I am a little disappointed. The guy only wants 100 bucks for the phone. I wanted to grab it but even if I paid the hundred for it and signed up with Verizon I would be out about 90 a month for their service. That is just pitiful!

    I was just grasping. Thanks again my friend.

    You have to look at the phones frequency specs and see if the carrier uses them Judee. A lot of times you can use the phone, but don't get 3/4g, only edge.

    Seems awful cheap, can you test drive it?

    Life was simpler before we had all these choices--

    HA HA So right Ken. Heres to the Simple Life. lol

    I went ahead and bought it. He needed the money and I wanted the phone. lol
    I can't do anything with it but play with some things on it but maybe someday...It is such a nice phone.

    Just wanted to let you know. In case you ever hear any good news about unlocking the sim, let me know.

    Take care my friend.

    understand, my one son has an iphone from brother. didn't put it on tmo as it won't work. but uses it as an mp3 etc

    very good price

    i think you can pay to get them unlocked from carrier, careful though as some are scams

    enjoy judeeg
