i have a us cellular locked galaxy s3. how can i go about getting service on it from another provider prepaid and/or contract?
its white, 16gb, SCH-R530U model, R530U.01 hardware, galaxy s3, us cellular stamped on back, starts up with us cellar screen. i got it for $100 from my cousin who got the new motorola touch screen as a replacement because he wasnt getting good signals or some shit. i still have the sim card and if i put it in the phone connects to towers and drains the battery even faster.
it has a sim card.
it does not currently have a contract/service on it. it still connects to towers and gets signal and sets time if i have the sim card in it.
can i unlock it and make it open to any service with a sim card? im not sure what unlocking a phone is. if i could do that, would i be able to buy a phone with a sim card and use that sim card in my s3 and have all the service from that phone on my s3?
i have a contract with verizon, its a pretty basic contract, no data. i have a shitty flip phone and i only use it for txt and call. i have always kept my multimedia handheld and cell phone seperate. ive never liked having to pay an extra 20-30 bucks for data. i dont mind only having internet when im connected to wifi.
thanks guys in advance. i know its kind of a lot to read and i appreciate any and all help.
External GPU docking

Hey, my laptop isn't able to do any of the gaming I want it to, so I've beeing looking for solutions because I have a few bucks to throw around, though not enough for a totally new computer. The processor on my laptop is quite mid-range, not really lacking for the sort of gaming I want to do. It's an AMD Turion-II p540 dual core @2.4G Hz, which isn't that bad. However, my integrated graphics card is absolutely what's holding me back in terms of what games I can play. A friend mentioned to me that if I was to purchase a separate GPU, I would be able to dock it and bypass the integrated graphics card, and increase my performance by a whole lot in the gaming department.
Now, I know this means I wouldn't be able to move my laptop around, but that's fine for me, as it just sits in my desk and I use a TV as a monitor. How would I go about doing this sort of upgrade, and are there parameters for the GPU I'd go for (i.e. drivers, etc.) that I should be wary of? One of the upswings to this is that I'd be able to use the GPU I buy as a component in a future desktop if I like, right?
