Hi team quick question I have been looking for a definitive answer if the Samsung Galaxy SIII GT-i9300 is compatible on the XT network. I understand the SIII is quad band but can someone confirm that this model will run as normal on the XT network.

Thanks for any help

if it is network unlocked yes it will work fine is the short answer

the long answer is the modem may not be completely optimized for the telecom network hence you may or may not be getting the absolute best data speeds from it or the absolute best battery life from it.

it's like buying a jap import bmw

note: it won't breakdown like a bmw




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Beware of the 'quad band' claims. A stupid shop assistant sold me a Vodafone smartphone saying it would work on the XT network as it was quad band. It was quad band alright, but only for GSM.

Yes, it'll be fine, I've used my S3 on Telecom recently - provided as above it's not network-locked to some other service provider. Telecom even sell the S3 themselves.

If you can find a hardware difference, more power to you, as far as I'm aware the T is only a regional firmware difference for Aus/NZ, which can be changed with a reflash ;) My Vodafone-supplied S3 was reporting as a GT-i9300T with it's stock firmware, too.
