It will work just fine. You may need to enter the APNs manually.

There is no Vodafone branding on local Galaxy S devices - no boot screens or similar - so nothing to remove.

I really like my S4, works fine on Spark. APN = Access Point Name, can be thought of as the internet gateway.

btw cross posting is unnecessary and frowned upon.

That link is indeed the i9506, aka Galaxy S4 Cat4, which has better internals than the standard i9505 S4.

^+1. The Warehouse stationery device is an i9505, which runs the slower 1.9ghz Snapdragon 600 processor.
The Snapdragon i9506 has a 2.3ghz quad core, plus faster Cat4 (150mbps) LTE vs the i9505 with Cat3 LTE (100mbps.)

The Snapdragon 800 endowed device also features a better camera (same as the i9500) which offers 720i 120FPS where as the i9505 is 576i 720fps.

Edit: Sorry I posted that on mobile, I was going to sit down and explain when on a PC :)

I'm sure the 9506 is better than the 9505, but the 9505 is no slouch. Works good :)

Yep, it's easy, just go into settings, connections, more networks, mobile networks, access point names.
