I have a SCH-S968C Straight Talk S3 running off verizon towers. I have installed a d2lte rom before and all went well besides my cell service dropping. I have philz recovery installed, but for the d2lte variant. Can I use that to install a d2vzw rom? Thanks in advance.

Do not attempt to install a d2vzw rom on anything but a d2vzw phone. You will hard brick the phone causing it to be unusable

Installing a d2lte rom should work seeming how it's a d2 variant

Not true. I've used several d2vzw ROMs and I'm using cm12 d2vzw from mastamoon now

What I said was indeed true. Do not install a rom intended for a d2vzw phone on another variant. It will brick another phone, but d2lte roms should work on any d2/USA variant of the S3
