Just because my phone is set to one provider doesn't mean it will only use their towers correct?
No, it wouldn't work like that as you wish. Although US GSIII has Qualcomm S4 chip (processor/modem) across the board, each carrier version of GSIII has its radio parts and radio firmware designed for each carrier's wireless standard. So you can't mix up that. The international GSIII has some flexibility with carrier, but it would only work with AT&T properly.
