    I've gotta travel over seas for a few months, this will be my first time and I was thinking of getting an SIII to help along the way.

    Is this the version I want to get? Amazon.com: Samsung Galaxy S III GT-i9300 16GB Unlocked Android Smartphone - International Version, No Warranty (Marble White): Cell Phones & Accessories

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! Any suggestions for other phones? I'm using the galaxy nexus (Verizon) here in the states, but I'm assuming that won't work overseas right?

    You can get the international HTC One X but I had one and it isn't no where near as good as the SG3....lots of software problems that I encountered but the hardware is excellent.

    Not unless the country has cdma and Verizon has a roaming agreement there. The Verizon Galaxy SIII will however have global roaming capability which Verizon said they'll enable at a later date. Who knows if it's like the Rezound where it seemed to be unlocked out of the box and not actually require an update.

    You can get the AT&T S3. It will roam on GSM/HSPA+ all over the world, AND, when you're in the US, you can use LTE.

    Indeed, your Nexus will not work in most of the world

    Hi - now that the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III has been out for awhile, can somebody please confirm if they have been able to successfully use an international local SIM card in a GSM country? I need to use it in Europe and would like to know if it can happen, or does it require a software update that's still yet to come. Many thanks in advance.
