Hello, This has been covered before, and I see it CAN be done, but so far I can only find companies that do this for a hefty charge. My apologies, but after a couple hours searching, I haven't found a definite answer.

First, we do NOT have any GSM service in our area, only Verizon. So what we are trying to do is flash a Verizon S3 to Straight Talk, to run on Verizon towers, 3G only it seems. There is a way to use a ST IMEI on the S3 to "fool" ST's system as far as I can tell.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to do this at home without sending it out? I've been rooting and flasing phones since the OG Droid days, so it should be a piece of cake lol.

Thanks in advance

Should be a simple matter of calling Straight Talk and asking them to put the phone in their towers. They should give you a Network Access Code. These can also be found at your local Walmart in the form of a Bring Your Own Phone kit.
