    I'm needing to purchase a new phone to replace my current one, which is now out of warranty and still under contract. I have a couple questions

    1. It will be for AT&T so I am needing to buy the 747 model I assume?

    2. Does the AT&T model have multi window functionality?

    3. Wheres the most reputable and inexpensive place to buy a new one? eBay has always been a crap shoot buying new and receiving refurbished. Best Buy so far is the cheapest I found at 299

    Thank you,
    Adam

    May as well spend much less money and buy a Moto G. The only huge difference is the camera between the S3 and the mentioned Moto.

    Agreed that it would be silly to spend that kind of money on an S3 - if you could find the older Moto X, or Moto G with LTE (the new Moto G doesn't support LTE) that would be a much better investment.

    It sounds like you're not eligible for an upgrade on your current contract?

    I thought about the Moto G w/ LTE, but the camera and bigger screen of the S3 is making me lean towards it. If only the 2014 Moto G had LTE.

    Motorola/Lenovo will probably release a version of the new Moto G with LTE at some point, like they did with the older Moto G, but that doesn't do you any good now. Perhaps you can still find the older model through Amazon or some other reputable source? (If Motorola still had the older Moto X available on their website I'd pick one up; the newer model is at a price point that I can't justify.)

    I saw the g flex for $199 no contract. Imo, a better device than the s3 at $299

    I've had good luck buying phones that look virtually new on Swappa. Right now there are a bunch of AT&T S3s for around $150 or less.

    Buy Samsung Galaxy S III (AT&T) in US > Swappa
