    Hey All,
    Im studying abroad in Denmark for the next year and have been trying to figure out if i can get my phone to work there and not have to get a different one there. I have a verzion samsung S3. not sure if it is unlocked and a little confused about the cdma/gsm differences because i keep on finding various answers about it. In the settings it is set to global network, so if i put in a Danish sim card would talk and text work? is the APN from the other network? so would they give it to you? Talking to a Verzion person on the phone got me nowhere.

    With the latest update, the Verizon s3 is unlocked. So you would just need a local sim. Apn is for data, and the sim provider can give you this info

    Did you put in the at&t sim first? Have you updated to the latest software?

    No. I didn't put the sim card in first. Once I do that it should work, right?

    You need to put in a non verizon sim in order to change the apn.

    Yes it will display the message, but it should still work. If you have root, there are ways to remove it.

    Only Verizon lte will work . You can use the hspa+ which is just a very fast 3g (usually att, t mobile)

    I am a newbie and tech is difficult for me to comprehend.

    I bought what I believe to be a new/never used Verizon branded Galaxy S4 from a private party.
    This phone is NOT activates with anybody
    I followed Junior's instructions and changed to GSM/UTS

    I currently have another phone, a activated Straight Talk LG phone using a 30 day Straight Talk card (not a SIM card)

    I don't understand this............. "AS for the APN settings in order to get internet, just google them... i had my best luck with HSPA+ settings to attain fastest speeds

    I read on a certain unlocking site ..........................
    "All SAMSUNG devices manufactured after the date of JULY 2013 and Samsung devices running on Android version is Android 4.4 (KITKAT) are subject to REGION LOCKING

    If your phone has been used previously with the original carrier, this will not apply to you. However, if your device is BRAND NEW, your must activate it with the original carrier and make a call of 5 minutes or longer.

    I still need to comprehend what my best value options are for activating my VERIZON branded Galaxy S4. Verizon store offered me a prepaid $30 plan for unlimited voice & text with 1 Gig
    of data. As I understood the V store employee the towers I would have access too, would be different than Verizon contract customers.

    IF you reply, please slowdown and try to come down to my beginner level.........Thanks in advance

    Take the straight talk sim and put it in the phone, change the network mode to gsm(settings - more settings-mobile networks - network mode) , then edit the apn from the mobile networks menu. It is on straight talk website.

    BBTree,
    Thanks for your info, I did the steps you posted, and Sorry if this sounds elementary but how I can confirm the unlock method stuck? A golden back up did exist and my I545 rebooted after on its own. Also what all carriers can I use with an unlocked I545 and with LTE data speeds? Sprint? I have a sprint L720 S4 also and have read this can be done as well but I need to downgrade the modem to MDC from MF9. It's not clear but hints that some have found it unlocks domestic also and is actually what I'm hoping for. Oh I also have a need to do the same for a VZ S3 i535 hoping to get this to work on sprint with 3g or higher data. Currently is only getting EDGE on Straight Talk.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Haleigh, yes you can. You will need to get the "BYOP" Sim card from Walmart or ST website then enter the APN in the phones settings. You will most likely not get more than EDGE (2G) for data unless the phone is unlocked

    I have been working on this 4 a couple of months. Cricket screwed me on this cdma thing and now it's vengenance. I have discovered it is NOT locked, it is software locked. Samsung tech support has told me these phones will work gsm or cdma. i have now figured out how to get it into odin mode where it can be flashed. and now looking for software. cricket is nothing but a bunch of liars thieves and cons.
