    Didn't even click the link but can tell it's definitely fake. I9500 is the number of the Exynos version which won't be sold here, and since it's an international phone it'll only have a GSM radio. Sprint is CDMA, which means unless it had dual radios (it won't) that it won't work on Sprint's frequency. Your best bet is to wait on Sprint.

    I preordered the 64gb international version from Negri Electronics. They said they wouldn't charge my card until it shipped. (a big maybe because Samsung never did release a 64 GB version of the SIII.)

    Anyway, the next day, there was the charge on my card. I mean, the phone hasn't even been built yet! But it turns out that if you pay with a debit card instead of a credit card, they debit you immediately and then reimburse your account three or four days later. Which they did.

    So, if I still have a preorder on file with them, I may actually get a 64gb S4 someday.

    But, do these international versions offer the US LTE frequencies and if so are they available to be used? If not well its only half the phone I wanted.

    I have seen eBay offers on the Verizon model to and they say shipping between April 26-May 2013 when in fact Verizon has not officially stated when its coming and there has been no leak on a date(s). It could be June/July and why would anyone buy online at full retail when you can do the same thing with Verizon online or in store.

    No LTE. HSPA+ on ATT at least. If you can pick up a Canadian model on Bell, Telus or Rogers they have the same LTE as ATT and they are not loaded down with all of the bloatware etc. You can probably even get it unlocked.

    Edit: I see you are on Verizon so no, none of the international models will work on Verizon LTE.

    Yeah I agree, but if someone buys it unlocked online, its better than buying it from a carrier at the store

    No not yet. But I definitely will very soon. Sold my s3 to a guy that (althought i loved it) clearly loved it more than I did and bought a nexus4 that was on sale. And although its a great phone, every time I use it I miss my old phone. The "pure google" experience is clearly not for me. But i'm so excited to get my hands on the S4!!

    I would miss the swiping left (message)/right (call) on contacts. Damn, I use that a lot!! lol! I don't understand why Google can't implement that feature on Pure Android?!

    I used to have a Google Nexus and I like my GS3 much better. I love the "Smart" features I use some of them and Swipe to call...also the camera is much better on the GS3

    Thanks. I will be moving to AT&T for the GS4, my Verizon use is going to be data only on my iPads and MiFi's at home. Over time I will convert to full AT&T, but it will take a while.

    I agree, its one of the reasons I chose to start migrating to AT&T for my phones. Eventually they should support Global LTE so eventually we should be covered.

    I don't think an entire thread for this question is needed so I'll post it in here since it seems like enough people use AT&T. How much do you all with unlocked phones pay a month to use AT&T and what is your plan type? I had planned on cancelling Sprint and buying one of the S4/One unlocked and going to T-Mobile, but I just found out the most they have in my area is 2G and I'd rather my connection be faster than molasses.

    Unlocked phones still get charged the same plan rates as locked phones. Only T-Mobile is touting their uncarrier plans. AT&T & Verizon will milk that as long as they can.
