Daily deal site 1saleaday.com has a pretty good offer available if you're looking to pick up a Samsung Galaxy SIII (S3) for use on AT&T's LTE network. For a penny under $500, you can get this unlocked AT&T model, in either blue or white, for about the next 10 hours (at the time of writing). It still isn't cheap, but it's probably the best deal you'll see on an unlocked superphone right now.

Why are these deals only for at&t and t-mobile networks only? Why are they never for Verizon?

Does it have something to do w/ cdma/lte?

I would have loved to pay $349 for my gnexus not $600

Yes. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can pretty much only use a verizon phone on the verizon network since it is CDMA. So you are not going to find third party deals on phones unless they are working directly with verizon.

With GSM, you just pop your sim card into any unlocked phone from anywhere in the world (as long as it supports the bands you need) and you are good to go. Your carrier does not need to be involved in any way.

This is the main reason I have not intention of ever going with a CDMA carrier.

Actually I have heard it is not a restriction of the CDMA technology itself though, just the way it happens to be set up in the US that no CDMA carriers allow sim cards.

Cell phones are so sadly overpriced. How come I can get a tablet with a 10 inch screen and built in LTE for $500 and a 4 inch plastic cell phone costs the same?
Such a scam. The full price is $599, which is even more outrageous.

Really? You want to know why a teensy tiny version carrying the exact same features (fast cpu, lots of memory, two cameras, probably about the same number of pixels) costs the same or a little more than its bigger counterparts? Lolz
