Title:

Phone network ability in Canada

Text:

I've been 'gifted' this phone from family in NY.  It needs a LCD repair of course,   however before I make any repairs, or port my next number over to my chosen carrier,  I wanted to ensure that  it'll work properly with my service.

It seems that this phone is a 2G only network, which is only Rogers.  I use Public Mobile, which I guess has nearly everything but.

My question is this, is there no way to update this phone so it can be used on my network of choice?

Yes, I do have a Rogers sim with a number(which is my next test), but the prices....  just make it MORE practical to move it over.

Device:

Samsung Galaxy s3 (Verizon i535)
