    good day everyone... I got a T-Mobile Pre-Paid Samsung GS3 LTE 16GB, Titanium Gray/Marble White from Wallmart T-Mobile Pre-Paid Samsung GS3 LTE 16GB, Titanium Gray/Marble White: Prepaid Cell Phones : Walmart.com

    my mom got it and she can ship it to me overseas ..
    I plan to use it over seas for my travels ...

    but before she ships it I'd wanna make sure it can be unlocked for sure - what do you think?

    do you know of any case ever that this can not be unlocked?

    how? where/what site/service?

    or maybe I just better of getting a factory unlocked from eBay?


    I've seen the free way on 4.1.1 or higher

    prepaid is generally service locked and frozen to the carrier it is meant for CDMA... GSM (SIM) is another beast all together.
