Dailysteals.com is offering the Samsung Galaxy S III i9300 for $599.99 today. As of this writing there's about 21 hours and 45 minutes left to pick one up. This is the unlocked international version, and although they all look the same, you won't get any carrier branding on this one. We recently reviewed this and found it to be an amazing phone, with plenty of horsepower and battery life to make it through all but the longest of days.
As a quick reminder, this is the version with the Exynos Quad SoC inside, and not the Snapdragon S4. That means it'll play nicely with AT&T 3G, but not T-Mobile as it lacks the necessarily 1700mhz AWS support. Not sure if this is the phone for you or still have some lingering questions that haven't been answered yet? Check out the Galaxy S III forums for all the answers to your questions.

Well, it'll be compatible with T-Mobile when they light up their refarmed 1900 MHz network. Tempting.
It doesn't play nice with ATT LTE, and by the description no Tmobile HSPA+? That kinda sucks.
"As a quick reminder, this is the version with the Exynos Quad SoC inside, and not the Snapdragon S4.

IT's 600$ which is the same price you'd pay for the LTE At&t version off contract. And it doesn't work on TMOB? . . . what a joke.
The LTE model won't work on T-Mobile neither. And it not that it won't entirely work, it will just on EDGE speeds.
It's tough to recommend the International version for $600, when you can pick up the AT&T version no-commitment for $549.99 with a one-year warranty through the carrier. My Tegra 3 One X bit the dust with issue after issue, and I can't just walk that into an AT&T warranty center.
Does the AT&T one work on T-mobile at 2G speeds until they get their 1900MHz network working? I.e., is it SIM unlocked?
