    Yeah, the Jelly Bean update will include global support. Verizon promised it would be coming when the phone launched, and a major update like Jelly Bean is the perfect time to do it. Unless a major issue pops up, the latest leak is expected to be the OTA, and it has GSM enabled.

    After the Fascinate issues, I'm holding out for 100%. The Froyo update destroyed that phone. Battery was lasting 4 hours max until the next update made it somewhat usable.

    But it is close enough to 100% to decide to wait for it.

    Jntdroid, if you install the phone info app, you will be able to see all of the network possibilities. I get the same menu when I select network in settings on my M, but with the phone info app, it expands it to list all the networks that are capable.

    The Phone Info app has shown the S3 to be GSM capable since launch. But the problem has been that while the hardware is there (and that's what the Phone Info app is looking at), it hasn't been enabled on the software side of things for the S3. So even if you forced a current stock Verizon S3 into GSM mode through the Phone Info app, the GSM radio won't work due to the lack of software. The Jelly Bean update will enable GSM through the software, resulting in the menu options jntdroid showed.

    Thanks bsweetness! (He's my international capable guru, lol)! You may or may not know the answer to this but is my JB Razr M capable of international roaming, using a foreign SIM? With the phone info app, I know it has the hardware but how do I know if it has the software?

    Verizon advertises it as being a global device (as noted by the globe in the picture below taken from Verizon's website), so yes, it's GSM capable using a foreign SIM. If you go into your network settings, you should have a global option along with CDMA/LTE and GSM only.

    Thanks! And yes I do have a global option. It is just like my og Razr Maxx in that respect so I assumed it was foreign SIM capable because my og Razr was proven to be.

    The RAZR M is a nice phone, but not really in the same league as the HD and The GS3. I looked at the M and decided I'd rather keep my og RAZR.

    Love the screen, couldn't stand the rest of it. Looks like it's made of cheap plastic and the design of the case was an afterthought. Not even close to it's big brothers. It is priced accordingly though, and I did consider it.

    With a case it's probably fine, but I just want the biggest screen that will fit in my hand/pocket - which puts the Note 2 out of the question as well.
