    Default HELP: How to get a UK Samsung to work with US Verizon Network

    So my sweet boyfriend bought a Galaxy S3 (unlocked) to use while he was hiking in the UK, through O2 mobile. My S3 in the US broke while he was away and we figured I would buy his when he got back. However I cannot get it to connect to the verizon Network though it takes my SIM card and can access the info on it. Any advice?

    I believe Verizon requires all devices on their network be approved by them and in their database.. So an unlocked one from the UK isn't approved and won't work on their network.

    This is the down side to CDMA networks like Verizon whereas AT&T and T-Moblie (GSM) allow unlocked phones without an issue.
