    You can go to settings and scroll down to about the phone and find Model number that it tells you what kind of samsung galaxy s3 you have after that you can go ahead and research the right way to root your phone make sure make a backups and nvbackup, before start rooting in case something goes wrong you can restore them and don't forget to follow every step by steps of the instructions. GOOD LUCK.

    prefer try to find your carrier. But I'm not sure how it works on the international models that what your sgs3, for us which means in USA it's gotta be same carrier to use the root file so my final answer will be research more read more before you do it, don't try to root your phone if you're not sure read and research more. Try to find your carrier forum, here on forums after that I hope it'll be easier to do so. GOOD LUCK AGAIN.

    Theres a separate forum for the gt-i9305 mate. Thats the best place to start :thumbup:
    Yeah its an international phone so the carrier wont matter when youre rooting :beer:
