    I have a Verizon Galaxy S3 that i bought off Ebay. It is unlocked and i looked under the Mobile network settings and it says that it can use Global, GSM, and CDMA networks. It has Android 4.4.2 and is not rooted. I want a cheap prepaid service so i thought i would try PTEL, i bought SIM card and a activation card and activated my account and put in the SIM. I know that they use T-Mobile bands and i know i cant get 3G or 4G and can only get edge but i am fine with that. I don't really need data because i am around wifi almost all the time. I have set the APN to PTEL but haven't deleted the Verizon APN. I have read on different sites of people using Verizon S3's on T-mobile so i don't see why this wouldn't work. I put in the SIM and it says that its an unknown SIM but i cleared the message and when i try to call or text it says that theres no mobile network. Will this work or am i wasting my time, or are there just some steps that i am missing. Any help is appreciated.
