I believe it does, but do go online at Samsung's website and see if you can make sure from them. I use a bluetooth, and it works great for it.

You can do Skype, but not familiar with the other one. I love Waze and highly recommend it for anyone who likes to see real time traffic reports.

This phone meets and exceeds the minimum requirements for both Skype and WhatsApp if that is what you meant. I'm making a lot of mistakes answering what I think people are asking but turns out that I'm not interpreting correctly.

This particular SIII on Straight Talk, however, uses the Sprint native network.

Sprint has "iffy" coverage in some rural areas.

This phone works off Sprint towers. It states (CDMA-S) beside the color.
That may be your problem.

Yes you can. The transfer might take a couple of hours but they will transfer from your old phone to the new one the exact same phone number. You will be able to use your old phone until it ports over to the new one.

Yes, if you currently have a Straight Talk phone and you are changing or upgrading phones, you can have your current number assigned to the new phone and have the remaining minutes on your plan shifted to the new phone.

In northwestern Pennsylvania, Walmart just had a special sale for a reduced price on the Samsung Galaxy 3 III if you also bought a 2-year Verizon plan. So it would seem that you can now get Verizon on this phone--at least in some places.

No. Each and every phone company has their own sim cards, thus connecting you to their towers. You can buy a sim card at Walmart for the Galaxy for their service should you wish to switch. But take your phone in to your local store and double check with their personnel in that department.

I'd suggest starting with their BYOP page as it's difficult to say if it can be brought over for sure without knowing all the details.

This is a Sprint powered phone and provides true LTE speeds. However, make sure you have strong Sprint native coverage in the places you want to use this phone especially if you want to take advantage of the LTE speeds. Not all Sprint coverage areas have LTE at this time but from what I hear, the goal is to have it in all their 3G areas by the end of 2014 ...that's the goal but we know that could be far fetched.

This phone only uses Sprint native coverage and will not roam so that is why you want to make sure you are in a strong Sprint coverage area.

Sprint coverage is not good compared with Verizon and AT&T so again, make sure you have good Sprint coverage in the places you plan to use this phone.

Sprint 4G LTE currently is NOT in many areas but is expanding quickly. The Sprint coverage map will not show all the areas that have LTE so even though the map may not show LTE, you may have it nonetheless. Just make sure you are in an area of otherwise strong Sprint native coverage.

For those of you who doubt this is a Sprint LTE phone, read this (copy-and-paste):
