As a new SGS3 user but a long time user of XDA, I would love for the Canadian models to have their own sub-forums. It just makes it easier to find things. I am a flash-a-holic and love trying out new ROM's but don't like bricking phones. Count me in to push for it.

Hey everyone,

I received a response from the moderator I PMd and was told two things: that the mods can't add forums and that the admins (who can add forums) will likely not do so because they are content with the layout. I guess we're stuck with the current setup based on American carriers.

Here's the way I suggest the forums work from here on out: Carrier becomes synonymous with model number. Therefore:

AT&T forum: SGH-I747 (AT&T, Rogers, Bell, Telus and SaskTel)
T-Mobile forum: SGH-T999 (T-Mobile, Wind, Mobilicity and Videotron)
Sprint forum: SPH-L710 (Sprint only, of no concerns to Canadians)
Verizon forum: SGH-I535 (Verizon only, of no concern to Canadians)

Developers, please put carrier support in the title of your threads. Thank you! I also updated the first post and asked a mod to sticky this thread.
Phone:
History: Motorola V220 -> Motorola RAZR -> HTC Wizard (Hello XDA!) -> HTC Touch -> Blackberry Curve 8330 -> Samsung Galaxy S III SGH-I747M
Current: Google Nexus 5 (stock: used in a corporate environment)

Tablet:
History: Viewsonic G-Tablet -> Asus EEE Pad Transformer (it's making a thief in Antwerp, Belgium very happy right now)
Current: Google Nexus 10 (stock: used in a corporate environment)

Other people's devices I look after:
HTC One X (stock)
Google Nexus 7 (stock)

Are you saying that it's been confirmed the T-Mobile T999 ROMs will run on the T999V for Wind, Mobilicity, and Videotron?

Always confirm with the op/dev if you are unsure. I can't see why any Rom that is based on the 2gb ram dual core crate s4 model wouldn't work for anyone with the same model regardless of carrier.

If your model number is i747m, it is bell. Tmoblile would be t999 I think.

Is there a way to check the model number before buying the phone?

Also if anyone is on virgin mobile (canada) can you confirm if it's either same as bell or t-mobile?
