Unfortunately not.

Verizon actually uses a completely different radio frequency than AT&T.

 

Think of AT&T as AM Radio frequency, and Verizon as FM Radio frequency.

If my stereo can only transmit and receive on AM channels, I cannot send or receive anything on the FM frequency. And vice versa.

Hope this has helped!

Also, the Verizon version of the GS3 is CDMA only, and will not work on any GSM network, including AT&T.  Nothing on the phone (not even Voice, SMS, or EDGE) will work on the AT&T network.

I also don't think that CDMA devices can even be "unlocked" from the Verizon network.

then the verizon rep told me wrong even an ATT rep said it would work but not too good with the ATT network i think they should know there own network?

Very confusing i think ill wait maybe for the white Samsung note 2 when ever that comes out. I was lucky I cancelled the grey version now i have to be patient.

The note 2 from Verizon ships with a GSM radio as well as the cdma radio...
