LTE 750
CDMA 850 / 1900
GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
so in theory whenever verizon releases the unlock, verizon's phone will become a global phone.

What the heck? I was told in the Sprint store the GS3 had GSM capability. And now you're telling me that Verizon does but the Sprint version doesn't? What are these shenanigans all about. Part of the big reason I chose to upgrade now and go with the GS3 was because I'm traveling to Europe soon. Not happy about this. -_-

Thanks for the clarification smile.gif I may go ahead and get this after all.

And Penryn, do let us know how CM10 preview is! After QBKing's review, I'm a little hesitant. I'm happy with my Blazer Rom (for Sprint) on 1.5, so I'll wait for JBean or another blazer update (past his 1.6) thumb.gif

So after a day of use, I am in love. NO ERRORS AT ALL. Made calls. Took pictures. Recorded video. Surfed the web. Checked email. Played several games. Just. Wow. The new voice search is SO amazing. I already knew that since I had JB on my Verizon Galaxy Nexus for a few weeks now though but JB makes this phone fly.

Not a single force close on anything. No connectivity issues. 3G speeds are good. It's very impressive for a preview I'll say that much. Battery life is about the same as I got on Phantom's Blazer ROM.




Yea, I am sticking with this.

No flash on default browser, Chrome or Firefox. The link in flash videos directs to the play store flash player download but it simply says:

Ah, thanks. I never really looked into it since I don't really visit many sites with flash on my phone, but it's good to know.

Hmm, the GPU is better in the International version, Duckie:

Not quite. If you actually look at those results and find their source, you will see it is Anandtech. You will then see that Anandtech made an amendment to their results when they found that the Adreno 225 was being punished by using AA whilst the Mali-400MP was incapable of using AA on the admittedly Adreno-centric benchmark.

I think it's *always* a good idea to just get the International version of mobile phones. On average it seems you end up with better hardware and better capabilities all over the world. Why not go for the International version?

On another note, I'm happy to hear there's a workaround to getting Flash to work on Jelly Bean! biggrin.gif
You know, in the mean-time whilst the Internet adapts to HTML5, Flash is still popular and needs attention in Android even if unofficially.

Good to hear CyanogenMod 10 Preview is really stable so far. Personally I'm waiting on Omega's take on it, once Samsung pop out their official update. Not that I'm using TouchWiz (I use Apex Launcher Pro) but I like how Omega is based on Samsung's firmware and how you can get bloatware back selectively.
