Samsung Galaxy S III has been confirmed for T-Mobile networks

Samsung Galaxy S III has been confirmed for AT&T and T-Mobile networks


May 21, 2012


"News reports from today confirm that the newest, most anticipated handset from Samsung will appear on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks this summer.  The Bluetooth Special Interest Group has approved both phones, with the AT&T version model number SGH-I747M and the T-Mobile version model number SGH-T999V. "


"The Bluetooth specs for the SGH-I747M include HSP, A2DP, AVRCP, GAVDP, HFP1.5, OPP, PBAP, MAP, PAN, HID and more.  The Bluetooth 4.0 technology allows users to connect wirelessly with optional, hands-free accessories like headsets or car accessories.  The T-Mobile model number SGH-T999V, supports the same technology and will allow users the same freedoms.  The last time Samsung released a phone overseas and then brought it to the United States, the phone had minor changes like moving the home button and other design changes.  This time around it is not very clear whether the company has done the same thing with the latest Galaxy S III model."




There's is more at the link. I was thinking of getting the I9300 international GS3. I found out the I9300 uses a micro sim card. I was in a chat today with a T-mobile rep who said you can only get a micro sim with a contract plan. Will it come to T-Mobile with the micro sim and be a contract only phone? Will T-Mobile change that option for us pre-paid users?


Only the shadow knows.
