the international phone from amazon will not work with any Verizon service and will work on ATT 3G.

I think that Sprint will soon follow suit and get rid of unlimited data. Especially since the rise of Android devices that are so easily rooted to allow wi-fi teathering to other devices.

If the GS3 comes out anything short of a quad core, game changing beast, then I'm not going to upgrade. I just bought the GS2 (epic touch 4G as Sprint calls it) and it's running circles around my old Evo 4G.

I'm sick of these half step increments to keep us buying! Now Sprint is making the move from Wi-Max to LTE so my ET4G is already out dated. I'm hoping that there is a firmware upgrade for the radios to make the Wi-Max phones LTE compatible.

Thanks for the clarification!



So Verizon completely did away with unlimited data then?! That's ridiculous...

News hit that Canada may have the Galaxy S3 available for sale on June 20th. Does that mean Verizon may get it then as well?

It may mean a week or so before. We are guaranteed for a June release at least that's what Samsung said at their press stuff. Theirs also the rumor of Verizon getting it before others in an exclusive deal.

I just want a new phone darn it.

Hmm... What kind of exclusive deal?! Give us a link!
Any perks for the buyers of the phone, or strictly a business deal?

Just did a quick search of Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 exclusive and couldn't find it again. I think it was a couple days before the reveal. It was a rumor too.
