    Yes you can use Verizon S3 on Tmobile network. I unlocked it and I even can use data (but the data is slow compare to the Original S3 from Tmobile).

    I have a htc droid incredible from verizon that is a dual gsm/cdma phone. The gsm was for only international sim cards and it was flashed to tmobile. With all the hassles i had to do to get this phone to work on tmobiles network its better you just buy a tmobile phone.

    {pros} the phone work only for calls
    {cons} the phone could not send or received texts
    could not go online
    basically it was just a regular phone that work only for incoming & outgoing calls!

    Do yourself a favor sale your gs3 then go to tmobile! Its not worth the hassels to flash it!

    Yes you can. I'm using mine on T-Mobile right now. The Verizon galaxy is a global phone. Look it up on youtube .

    T-Mobile is GSM. It will not work on CDMA.

    The Verizon GS3 can be used on T-Mobile. The phone includes support for GSM frequencies and I've used my T-Mobile SIM with my GS3.

    You don't need to do anything special to get voice and SMS working. Just put a T-Mobile SIM card in the phone and you're good to go. To get data and MMS, you have to add a new APN entry that includes the settings for T-Mobile's network. While it works, it's not the greatest experience, as you're limited to Edge speeds for data.

    The latest Verizon update allows you to add APNs without root. In prior versions of the firmware, Verizon locked access to the APN menu so root was required to add a new APN.

    As a matter of fact, Verizon does label the Galaxy S3 as a Global Ready phone. It says so right on the Samsung Lineup with the Globe logo as well as in the specs on the product page.
    Network
    LTE, CDMA/PCS/1xEVDO Rev. A (800/1900 MHz)
    Global: GPRS/EDGE/GSM (850/900/1800/1900); HSPA/UMTS (2100)

    You realize you responded to a post from 11 months ago? At the time I wrote it, Verizon's web site was incomplete, and didn't list those specs.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Verizon is making several phones global compatible. It is more common than you think I am actually currently using a Verizon HTC Rezound on T-Mobile. It takes a bit of work with APN's etc but it is possible. The Verizon Galaxy S3 is one of these global phones (Verizon Samsung SCH-i535 Galaxy S3 Specs | Technical Datasheet | PDAdb.net) if anyone ever wonders if a phone has the dual band technology you can just check pdadb.net (very reliable from my experience so far).
    Sources: My bro works for Verizon and pdadb.net

    Cellular Networks: GSM850, GSM900, GSM1800, GSM1900, UMTS2100 (B1)
    Cellular Data Links: GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA, HSPA+

    Global means it supports global voice and edge data bands. Verizon's S3 is not a global 3G device. You need a pentaband radio for that. Also, the specs you list are obviously missing a band you need for 3G on T-Mobile. ..

    T Mobile is 1700/1900/2100 for 3G. Some areas are reformed but that is very limited in coverage. .

    AT&T uses 850 and 1900 for 3G, which this phone does support. Typically unless a phone was designed with T-Mobile in mind, expect edge or at best severely limited 3G and no LTE. AT&T uses more common bands (same as Rogers in Canada, for example) so their network is a safer "migration" IRT data compatibility.
