Haha. I could have just bought the International S3 if I wanted the S3. I wanted OUT of Metro but also wanted a new phone. Plus the thought of Google controlling my updates vs Samsung was more appealing as well. 4.2 will be out in a few days

At the end of the day that's all that matters. I've found that everyone uses their phone for different ish. I for one use it for the bare min and mainly for development. I dont play games, watch movies, etc...... I talk very little, text a lot and tinker till the sun goes down. lol.

I've been clamoring this FOR WEEKS when the whole T-mobile merger debacle thing happened and you all ignored me! *sniff*
I've been telling you all, REGARDLESS of what the carriers say, all US/Canada S3s are interchangeable under the hood. SIM/CDMA means no difference for the S3.
Yeah, that phone is a B.E.A.S.T

After reading through the steps involved, it seems simple. Unfortunately it says that you will only get EDGE data speeds here in the U.S. (well, with the Verizon phone, I wonder what will happen with the Metro phone).

verizon and metro are more in common then people think, from my understanding, both are cdma networks, that utilize a uic card for 4G data.

Hmm, this means this phone is a beast, it CAN work on any network. Nice!
Also this means that the phone will work after metro shuts down cdma (even if you didn't find this it would )

The phone has both cdma and GSM radios. So both cdma and GSM networks will work.

My current "Edge" speeds are better than my Metro LTE speeds I was getting. So the "edge" network isn't as bad as some may think.

I hit 1.5 at the house. But, edge never shows up so I have to manually cut off 4G in order to do this.

Average EDGE speed is 140kbps so it's like the GSM variant of 1x but there are very few areas that have Evolved EDGE

You have to have it be set as global for it to get the gsm signal and once you switch sim cards it automatically stops the other service

Default Tried using different sim today!!

I used my friend t-mobile sim for a breif while today and I was able to make calls without even turning it into global. once I put global using phone info, I was able to see 3g pop up on top of my screen .
But I didn't had much time to do much testing tho like browsing or texting etc. I'll try again later with an at&t sim too.

It's also a good idea when doing this to change the radio type from NV to SIM in mobile network settings, for proper performance.

yes i put t-mobile sim to test out. I also tried at&t last night for a brief while. put my friends att sim and he called his office number and call went through.
But i tried changing to global nd it didnt stick as someone mentioned. Also i didnt have apn set to test out data. I will see if i get a hands on on a att sim for longer time so i can experiment more and confirm the proper working!
But for now it seemed to work
