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.

Unfortunately, no. This phone is CDMA using Sprint so it is incompatible.

Please check in person at your local Walmart. I have found the zip code thing online is not accurate, probably just needs updating.

The particular Straight Talk SIII uses the Sprint native network which is notoriously known for having a way less coverage footprint than either AT&T or Verizon.

I think the reason that when you put your ZIP code in the Walmart website service confirmation box and it comes back as "Warning:This phone will not work..." is that it the area the ZIP codes covers has to have strong coverage over the entire area. This is to protect themselves.

Even though you may have coverage in that particular ZIP code, others may not. Therefore, Walmart and Straight Talk have to give the warning that it will not work because if they say it will work and somebody buys the phone and they are not in a good coverage area, they are going to say "you told me it would work! ...now I have to return this phone because it doesn't."

What I would suggest is to put your address or any other address that you plan to use the phone into the Sprint coverage map on the Sprint website.

http://coverage.sprint.com/mycoverage.jsp?id=BO543STC

Remember, though, this phone will only work where Sprint native coverage is available. It will not roam away from the Sprint native network.

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.

Is this phone cdma- V

answer 1
CDMA-S meaning it is on the sprint network. The only way that I have read that it could be on the CDMA-V verizon tower is if you bring the phone from verizon with you. I am not a tech wiz, but there may be a way to get it to work on verizon. There are plenty of forums online that explain this, if you can understand it. I get a headache after reading a lot on it so I give up, but you may be able to understand what they are saying.

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):

If you choose the regular StraightTalk plan, you will have excellent reception off the towers that are near you. I have been told that mostly Verizon's towers are used, but since StraightTalk is a partner or service of TracPhone, it uses whichever towers you are near. So, no worries, and no towers in particular. I can tell you I have better reception than my sister's AT&T and my other sister's Boost Mobile.

The Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S II will run off of AT&T but this phone, the Galaxy S III, will run off Sprint.

Could the Walmart associate have thought you meant the S II?

THIS PHONE HAS A "SIM CARD" PREINSTALLED. STRAIGHT TALK IS A PRE PAID CELL PHONE SERVICE, YOU GET PRE PAID MINUTE CARDS EITHER AT WALMART OR PURCHASE DIRECTLY VIA STRAIGHT TALK.COM

YOU GET UNLIMITED CALLS, TEXT AND DATA (INTERNET) FOR $45 A MONTH

NO YOU CAN'T SWITCH FROM STRAIGHT TALK TO T-MOBILE OR OTHER CARRIER WITH A STRAIGHT TALK PHONE, THE PHONE WON'T WORK

There is no contract with Straight Talk. You pay in advance for your service so you can go month to month if you wish. You can quit at any time and go to another service. It doesn't mean your phone will be compatible with that service and you may have to buy a new phone to work with the new service you choose.

Some Straight Talk phones will have SIM cards and some will not. And some with SIM cards may be locked. This refurbished iPhone 4 is a CDMA phone that I believe does not have a SIM card slot and if not, you will not be able to use it on T-mobile service. You may or may not be able to flash it to another service. I'll let somebody else who is more familiar with the phone answer that.

This refurbished Straight Talk phone as it is shipped will be used with the Verizon native network.
