Can You Unlock T-mobile On A Verizon Galaxy S3?

Postby Nell » Fri Sep 29, 2017 4:26 pm

I realize that it's specifically Verizon, but there IS a sim card slot, and I'm getting a good deal on this phone if it IS possible. This was possible on an Iphone 4s a year or so ago, so I'm wondering since Android OSes are very much more user friendly, if it's easily done.

Thank you very much!

Corvato is correct.

The Verizon Galaxy S3 is a CDMA only device so it will not work on GSM networks (T-Mobile uses GSM). http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s...

The iPhone 4S is an international device so it will work on GSM networks.

Verizon S3 wireless technology:

CDMA:

800, 1900 MHz

LTE:

700 MHz Class 13

Data:

LTE, EV-DO Rev.A

No GSM/UMTS

The people in the XDA thread are wrong.

EDIT:

It looks like with some wicked hacking you can make it work on GSM networks overseas.

Try it with your Galaxy S3 to see if it will work on T-Mobile's GSM network in the US and report back. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthre...

no, the Galaxy S 3 from Verizon is a CDMA/LTE only model

T-Mobile is a GSM only network

the SIM card may fit, but it won't work.

you do know, that T-Mobile sells the same phone, in a GSM version, for the same price as verizon does.

it worked on the iPhone 4s because that was a world phone, with both GSM & CDMA support.
