I have been offered a Verizon LTE galaxy s3 for my Verizon 4s. Should I do the trade. What would I lose or gain. I love social media. I have a macbook pro, apple tv, nexus 7 (soon to be iPad), and 4s. I do like the s3 as a phone but the problem is I have tmobile. With the iphone after i can jailbreak it will work. The s3 there is a possibility to switch to global and use the LTE for tmobile after rooting. Do you htink this phone would work for me?

Sounds like you enjoy swimming in the Apple pool. I'd say just stick with it. I like Android better, and the S3 is a sweet phone, but may not be for you if you are a iOS device kinda person. It all depends on what YOU want.

Thunder7 is correct in his reasoning, however I must point out that Verizon LTE will not work with T-Mobile LTE. Both the 4s and S3 should work on T-Mobiles GSM bands, but only the iPhone will get 4G(HSPA+ not LTE) speeds. Even when T-Mobile starts to roll out it's 4G LTE network this year the S3 will still not be able to use it since Verizon and T-Mobile LTE will operate on different bands. And even if you have an urge to switch to Android and the S3, that is a terrible trade if 4G speed is important to you.
