If the phone states "Unlocked" in the title and / or description, like the Samsung - Galaxy S III 4G Mobile Phone (Unlocked), you can just take out your SIM card from your existing GSM phone and place it into another unlocked GSM phone. If the description says unlocked, you can use it on any GSM network; worldwide.
◄►
Only GSM phones can be unlocked, so please look for the word GSM in the description.
◄►
Also, you must make sure that the frequencies supported by the phone are compatible with the wireless provider you plan on using it on. You may just want to do a quick Google search to see what frequency a specific phone / carrier operates on to assure you will have the clearest reception with your phone.
◄►
AT&T, T-Mobile, and Rogers Wireless and many other Global GSM Provider‘s worldwide operate on a "GSM" network.
◄►
CDMA carriers such as Verizon are making some of THEIR phones GSM compatible, by configuring the specific phones to be SIM card capable so they can be used GLOBALLY.
◄►
Nextel (which is going out of business on 06/30/2013), Sprint, Alltel, Cricket, and Verizon all operate using CDMA networks. A GSM phone will NOT work on a “CDMA” network. The Samsung - Galaxy S III 4G Mobile Phone (Unlocked) will NOT work on a “CDMA” network.
◄►
I hope this answers your question.

"Unlocked" in regards to cell phones means that the cell phone will not be locked to a specific carrier. The unlocked cell phone will be able to work on any compatible carrier's service. However, I suggest contacting your carrier for more information on their system's compatibility with the SGS3.

The SGS3 will offer three different internal memory options: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. However, since I do not work for Best Buy, I do not have access to their inventory system, and therefore I will not be able to tell how much internal memory this specific SGS3 will offer. I suggest contacting a Best Buy Mobile associate for additional assistance.

Unlocked Galaxy S3 has one year universal guarantee. You can use it in Turkiye, if you buy "unlocked" Galaxy s3. And this is the 16 Gb version, but you can increase the capasity of memory with SD Card up to 64 GB.

I read that Korea was getting the Exynos 4 Quad + LTE + 2GB RAM.. So maybe it isn't impossible.. Maybe Samsung wanted all 4 major US carriers to have the same chipset and went with the Qualcomm S4 since Verizon and Sprint are CDMA and not GSM. That's my thoughts on the situation.

Your answer is in the specifications of the Samsung - Galaxy S III 4G Mobile Phone (Unlocked). The "Band and Mode" line gives you everything in short order.

It's a GSM phone, with 4G|LTE. And 4G is by definition: Evolved HSPA or HSPA+42.

If by 'chip' you mean SIM card, the answer is yes. But, you must make sure that the frequencies supported by the phone are compatible with the wireless provider you plan on using it on.

You may just want to do a quick Google search to see what frequency a specific phone / carrier operates on to assure you will have the clearest reception with your phone.

Or better yet talk to your carrier to be sure the Samsung - Galaxy S III 4G Mobile Phone (Unlocked) will work on their network.

Brazil is on a GSM network 1900 or 850. This cell will work. the "chip" you are refering to is a SIM ( subscriber identity module). all GSM phones have one. the galaxy s3 is a GSM capable and therefore will work in brazil.

Virging and Boost are owned by Sprint, so that means their network uses CDMA technology. If the S3 is a GSM phone (i.e. take a SIM card) it will not work on their networks, however it could work on AT&T, T-Mobile or StraightTalk, since their networks use GSM technology.
