Latest reports have pointed to the possibility that Verizon will release a software update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 to provide its customers the capability of calling in just about any part of the world.

Verizon subscribers who travel abroad will reportedly be able to use their Samsung Galaxy S3 to talk with anybody no matter which country that they are currently in.

The report was supposedly confirmed by Verizon according to PhoneScoop which indicated that an email was sent by Verizon that confirmed reports that users of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be able to use 2G / 3G mobile networks of overseas mobile service providers to allow international roaming.

Although this capability will not be available when the latest Samsung smartphone will be launched by Verizon, a software update will be available soon. No schedule was revealed on the availability of the software update for the Samsung Galaxy S3.

An earlier confirmation from Verizon revealed that it will be releasing a software update to four Android-powered smartphones that will allow them to be used on GSM networks. Among the smartphones that will feature GSM roaming are the HTC Rezound, Motorola Droid 4, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx and the Motorola Droid Razr.

In the past, the incompatibility of the technology used by Verizon had prevented its customers from using their phones while going abroad. This resulted to the offering of world phones that gave customers the capability of roaming to most of the international mobile service networks.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 of Verizon will reportedly work in the same way as it will use the 2G / 3G mobile networks of international service providers.

For the moment Verizon has not given any statements in connection to the upcoming roaming capability of its version of the Samsung Galaxy S3.
