    Yes, your I9305 is international.

    Yes, the I9305 is one of the two major international models. However, the two models are VERY different from each other, so only use root methods designed to work on your phone model. Using one meant for the I9300 could have disastrous consequences due to the different chipsets.

    Theres a separate forum for the i9305 version mate. Its quad core and 4g/lte but as Rukbat says, i dont think data will work on any US network. Could be wrong...

    You're welcome. Best advice I can give is to read through the threads that are of interest and then make your choices accordingly; read, read and read that's how you get the best out of your phone.
