different s3 models on Straight Talk
I'm in the suburbs of Raleigh, NC, US. The plan is to get a Galaxy s3 and use the Straight Talk plan. Before coughing up all that money for a phone, I want to be sure of which model will work with which network.
Since I don't have t-mobile or at&t currently, I can't say for sure which network I want to use so ideally I'd like to be able to pick the best network after trying them. If that's not an option, I'd bet on AT&T.
I'd be happy with a download speed of around 3 Mbps ... much faster than my Virgin Mobile's '3g'.
Can you please confirm and correct me:
t999 (t-mobile US version)
-Use on ST with no need to unlock with a ST t-mobile sim
-Looks like I can get decent data speeds with a AWS acquisition t-mobile did? Since it looks like my city was announced>
-Unlocked, will it use AT&T's HSPA+ with a ST t-mobile sim ???????? <-THIS is my big Q
- I can buy this directly from t-mobile, seems much more official/straight forward than the other models below.
i747 (at&t- US version)
- Use on ST with no need to unlock with ST at&t sim
-Will get AT&T's HSPA+ with at&t sim
-Unlocked, with a t-mobile sim, it's stuck at EDGE speed
-Doesn't seem any official dealers I can buy from. Just unknown resellers on the web with mixed reviews
i9300 (international unlocked version)
- No need to unlock for either at&t or t-mobile ST sims
-Will get AT&T's HSPA+ with AT&T ST sim
-With a t-mobile ST sim, it's stuck at EDGE speed?? (won't use AWS like the i747 will)?
-Again, doesn't seem any official dealers I can buy from. Just unknown resellers on the web with mixed reviews
Thank you so much for the help. If I'm correct, the t999 seems like the one I want, IF it can get at&t hspa+ with an at&t sim. I also like I can get it direct from the t-mobile dealer.
