I'd like to have the Samsung Galaxy S3 as my first smartphone, and with the ... Android Smartphones forum
Unlocked phone with any carrier/plan?
I'd like to have the Samsung Galaxy S3 as my first smartphone, and with the T-Mobile/Walmart $30/month pre-paid, no-contract plan. But that phone is only available with their contract plans.
Could I simply buy an unlocked S3 from elsewhere, and then sign-up for that $30 pre-paid plan?
Sorry for the 'noob' question...

Hm. Good question. I don't see why not, but I'm not familiar with how the prepaid plans work, so I'm not sure.
Your best bet is to call T-Mobile and ask them.
If you get an unlocked international then yes. I'm not sure of the current status of unlocking T-Mobile S3. As long as the radios are compatible then no issues. I'd be sure to check, I know some devices don't obtain full speeds on some networks.
