Default [Q] Replacing lcd+digitizer using part from another carrier?

I need to replace the lcd+digitizer on my verizon s3. Can I buy a sprint/att s3 and use the lcd+digitizer from that?

Yes,

better idea is just to swap out your boards, then it's a way easier fix. Wouldn't have to risk breaking anything.

what board? But is still doable? using a different carrier? S3 seems to be the same for all carriers...

But will an AT&T board work in a Sprint frame? (Got a free AT&T one from a friend and I want to fix it with the purple color only from Sprint) Any help would be appreciated.
