    So I recently noticed there may be a way to unlock the bootloader for the S3 on Verizon but it must be no d2vzw verison? Is there any way to check if my phone is that version?

    If your phone is the i535 and you took the ota to 4.3 there isn't currently a way to unlock the bootloader.

    If you have a Verizon S3, you have a d2vzw. And yes there are a couple of ways to unlock it. However, as tensazan has said, if you took the OTA update to 4.3 then you can't unlock the bootloader, though you still can flash some TW ROMS using Safestrap I believe.

    Have you unlocked your bootloader before? Are you stock or have you flashed?

    Go to Settings>About Phone and see what your Android Version is and your Baseband version and report back.
