I have a T-mobile Galaxy S3, and my carrier is T-mobile. I also have a Verizon Galaxy S3 laying around, but I don't use Verizon.
My T-Mobile S3's digitizer and lcd is broke, and I was wondering if I could take apart both phones and replace the motherboard from the S3 and put it in the working verzion model.
Yes, the T-Mobile S3 works fine other than the screen.
Thanks.

Should work ok. If the housing is different and the mobo doesn't fit quite right you should be able to swap the display instead. More difficult to do though.

If the antenna connects to a separate board you may need to swap it as well.
