All signs are pointing toward the SGH-T999 (Galaxy S III) heading to T-Mobile as the newest piece of evidence surfaces in the form of FCC approval. Hereís the one notable takeaway from this, no LTE is coming in this particular model. The documents do show WCDMA support for T-Mobileís AWS band, just as we expected to see. Thereís also support for the 850 and 1900 bands meaning this device will be ready to rock under T-Mobileís refarmed 4G network as well. The lack of LTE connectivity isnít surprising given that T-Mobile isnít expected to launch their LTE network until sometime in 2013, but we had hoped that Samsung and T-Mobile would forward think given that T-Mobileís AWS LTE network will pair up nicely with AT&Tís own LTE 1700 bands.

NFC (near-field communication) is on board, but we donít know how much support T-Mobile will offer for this feature, though we hope Google Wallet support is a possibility. Other than that, weíre not seeing any other surprises here, good or bad.

All in all, this early FCC report seems fairly standard ó so now we wait for T-Mobile to make an official announcement.

So am I right to assume this device unlocked will work with ATT as well? Given the 850 and 1900 HSPA bands, despite not seeing 2100 listed.

If this materializes as a quad core Exynos than this might stop me from pre-ordering the international version. Lets go T-Mo!

If it's Tmobile I might switch from AT&T. I think T mobile is quite a bit cheaper for me

Looks like their is two models. The SGH-T999 and the SGH-T999v. I'm thinking its going to be two different storage options.
