    Verizon version is no good, July 31, 2012

    If you’re interested in this phone, I do not recommend the Verizon version. Verizon has crippled the software and will not provide any valid reason or a way to unlock the full potential of this device. If you like this phone, you will be better off getting it on AT&T or T-Mobile’s network, because they have not crippled the software. Even Google Wallet is disallowed on this device, which is touted as having “NFC” capabilities, a very cool and convenient feature that Verizon has blocked out. The Sprint version allows you to utilize your phone’s NFC chip with Google Wallet to make purchases at stores with paypass scanners. If you buy the Verizon version your NFC chip will go to waste and the full potential to customize your phone will not be available to you unless Verizon decides to change their mind about this.

    Excellent phone, but lets face it, it is severely handicapped with a locked bootloader. I would strongly consider getting a different device, or better yet, moving to a different provider if on verizon wireless.

    This the same phone as Sprint AT&T and T Mobile but Verizon changed the software crippling it’s potential and ruining an otherwise good phone. Just about every single app I download for it that is listed to work on the Galaxy S3 doesn’t. I have contacted three of the developers (people who wrote the apps) and they all told me the Verizon version of this phone is nothing but a head ache for developers its software is a nightmare. I have had to Factory reset my phone four times because of these incompatibility reasons. I contacted Verizon and they told me the software is different because of security reasons???? and that using software like the other companies use (Sprint AT&T and T Mobile) will diminish the Android experience! Being able to use half the apps that the other phones have and having your phone lock up on half of the ones you are told you can down load….what an experience nice work Verizon. If you really want this phone don’t get the Verizon version you will regret it I certainly do.
