Disclaimer
Please read the product description carefully for all unlocked cell phones.

Some unlocked cell phones sold by Newegg may have previously been locked to a specific carrier. A carrier-locked cell phone may often have carrier-specific applications and branding. Some of these applications cannot be unlocked and/or may not function with a different carrier. Also, applications requiring a data plan may result in data usage charges from the original carrier.

In addition, the cell phone box may arrive unsealed and the cell phone may appear previously handled. The unlocking procedure requires unsealing the box and manually handling the cell phone. In this case, the cell phone should not be considered "tampered with" or "defective".

1 out of 5 eggsVery bad fake phone

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)

Pros: I owned this phone for almost 18 months and about two days the phone was dead for no reason. I did not drop and shake the phone and the phone always stopped at sumsung logo page. I took the phone to the local store and they could not fix it because it is not software issue. Later I called sumsung service department and was told this phone can not receive any repair service because it was brought into USA from China. It seems impossible to repair this phone at a fair cost. Don't by this piece of junk from newegg. I hope newegg will control the quality of the selling items.

Cons: A junk.

2 out of 5 eggsOffice space, paperjam, PC Load letter

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)

Pros: runs cool apps. takes good photos and video. sound quality and call quality is good.

Cons: wont connect to wifi most of the time. sometimes when it does connect to wifi it wont get on the internet. I have done all the tricks, I have changed all the settings. WIFI still comes and goes as it chooses. Latest problem is 4 bars of signal, but cant make calls or get on the internet even through 4G. Cant get texts either untill it restart the phone. Works for 30 min then does it again.

1 out of 5 eggsNot sure the phone is actually manufactured by Samsung.

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)

Pros: Galaxy S3 phone is great but I don't know this phone is actually manufactured by Samsung.

Cons: I bought the Galaxy S3, sold and ship by NewEgg, I was not able to register the product with Samsung. So I called Samsung and provided the model number and IMIE number. Samsung even don't recognize the number. Then I called NewEgg and the representative told it is sold and ship from NewEgg but from another vendor and provide vendor contact email. When I contacted the vendor, vendor told, “NOTHING TO WORRY”, but no further assistance to get the product requested with Samsung or the country of origin... Later I find many of the cool S3 cool features are not working in this phone. No way to get support from Samsung or NewEgg. I'm not sure this phone is actually manufactured by Samsung.

1 out of 5 eggsIt's a piece of JUNK !

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)

Pros: No PROS for a phone that constantly freezes, hangs, reboots, etc. It doesn't work, that's it

Cons: I own one of this expensive brick. Samsung has deceived its customers by offering a product with flaws. This cell phone can have a serious hardware failure on the motherboard. The Android OS on this phone cause failures and the stock rom running on it can freeze occasionally. You have to disable many functions to stabilize the phone so that you do not experience a large number of freezing during a very short period of time. Just do not blindly believe what I say, search the Internet for these three words: SAMSUNG S3 POST and you will be amazed by the amount of emails resporting topic. SAMSUNG NOT TAKE SERIOUSLY YOUR CLIENT AND KEEP QUIET ABOUT THIS PROBLEM. BETTER OFF BUY LG, HTC. I WILL NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT FROM THIS MANUFACTURER anymore.

Other Thoughts: IF YOU WANT TO WASTE YOUR MONEY, THEN CLICK ADD TO YOUR CART BUTTON AND PURCHASE ONE

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy if you are using T-Mobile

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)

Pros: Don't Buy if you are using T-Mobile
Issue : 1. Less Coverage
2. Wrost coverage for Data Plan

Cons: Worst Battery life. In short this might be good with other carrier but if you are planing for T-Mobile so think twice.

1 out of 5 eggsthe item was either refurnished or a returned one

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)

Pros: NA

Cons: I bought this item for an oversea friend. WiFi of the phone stopped working recently. After trying a recovery with system restore my friend suprisedly found a SuperSu app appeared on the screen. The app is for rooting the device and should not come from Samsung. And the WiFi is still not working.

1 out of 5 eggsPhone is great when working.

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)

Pros: Phone suddenly died completely after 6 months by itself one day. I have no way of getting it repaired now.

Cons: In trying to get it fixed, I contacted Samsung for repairs, since it's got practically no warranty. Samsung US said this phone cannot be repaired in the US, they don't handle international versions. Samsung HK, where is phone is originally from, said I have to fly over, they won't accept mail. So there you have it, be prepared to have no recourse when your phone breaks.

Newegg haven't replied my email in two weeks on this issue, so much for customer service.

So disappointed in both.

Other Thoughts: originally thought the 3mo warranty is from Newegg, and there's the 1 year warranty from Samsung. But I was wrong, Samsung does not cover this phone at all.

1 out of 5 eggsDead in Six Months

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)

Pros: Pros are very well introduced in the brochure.

Cons: Phone suddenly died completely after 6 months by itself one day. I have no way of getting it repaired now.

THE WARRANTY IS ONLY 3 MONTHS!

In trying to get it fixed, I contacted Samsung for repairs, since it's got practically no warranty. Samsung US said this phone cannot be repaired in the US, they don't handle international versions. Samsung HK, where is phone is originally from, said I have to fly over, they won't accept mail.

4 out of 5 eggsGalaxy S3 Unlocked.

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)

Pros: Phone came extremely fast, Did not have one scratch on it.(This i feared). Was able to finance the phone through my preferred account and if paid off within a year no interest is due which is extremely good because I am a college student and don't have 500.00 to throw at a phone.
*I had an iPhone before this and i am glad i switched over. Good phone for being productive.
*Has so many features that my iPhone didn't have which are beneficial to me.
Very Nice screen. Camera is extremely clear.
*When you set an alarm it actually tells you how many hours until the alarm will ring.
* Phone is fast and doesn't lag. Used to own a my touch and it would always do that.

Cons: Very big phone. Not a complete con, Just not used to it. Will take time to get used to.

A good case for this phone is expensive. As is with any phone.

Other Thoughts: Over all I really like the phone. The white color is best in my opinion and it is the best phone i ever owned thus far.
