will a unlocked sprint samsung s3 work on the telus network?
Only some cdma in usa (verizon and sprint) phone work in HSPA ... in canada ... the good deal ... you can buy a bad esn phone in usa ... and the phone work without any problem here ... ( i don't want encourage stolen phone ... but bad esn is sometime ... bill don't paid ... money is money ... for all people ... )
Example: I believe I read the Verizon iPhone 5 is supposed to be unlocked for (non-domestic) roaming. It supports the HSPA frequencies B/R/T use, so it should be usable here. http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=3913
The Sprint GS3 OP inquired about does not support LTE nor HSPA on any of the frequencies B/R/T use, so it would not work at all.
Some models may work, some will not, you have to do your research.
The Sprint variant of the Samsung GALAXY S III, SPH-L710, will NOT work on TELUS - UMTS/HSPA+ or LTE network. If you use it with an active Sprint account, it will ROAM on the TELUS' CDMA/EVDO network. However, if you intend to put it on a TELUS account, the policy will not allow you to register / activate a non-TELUS CDMA device.
