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):

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.

All you have to do is buy the sim card at Walmart and switch them out. At least I have been told this is what you do, but go into the Walmart store near you and check with them first.

Unless they've updated the guidelines, a CDMA 4G LTE Verizon phone can't be brought over (I'm assuming yours is a 4G LTE?).

Check with Straight Talk to confirm one way or the other. Call them or you can start with their BYOP website (copy-and-paste):

The phone featured on THIS page is the Sprint version of the SIII. It will use the Sprint native network and is a true 4G LTE phone. It will have very fast data speeds if within a Sprint LTE coverage area. The Samsung model designation is S960L.

There is a Verizon version of the same SIII sold by Straight Talk at Walmart. It has the model number of S968C. However, it will be limited to 3G data speeds. If you are okay with slower internet speeds, the Verizon version may satisfy your needs.

Currently (at the time I am writing this), the Verizon version (the S968C) in the white color can be ordered in a bundle that includes a $50 Walmart gift card. To order, go to this page (copy-and-paste):

Unfortunately, the Straight Talk Terms and Conditions of Service prohibit tethering of any kind, including using a phone as a hotspot. The phones Straight Talk sells that have the ability to be used as a hotspot will have that feature disabled.

Question

Who is the service carrier? Sprint or Straight Talk?

The first customer review I read refers to Sprint being the service carrier although Walmart and Straight Talk hide this issue. I would like know considering the fact that I would like to get away from the high cost of Verizon, although their service is excellent. If Sprint is in any way affiliated with Straight Talk, forget it. So Straight Talk what is your answer?

I don't think Walmart and Straight Talk are really "hiding" anything as Straight Talk uses all four of the "big 4" networks and it is known that they are an MVNO. An MVNO contracts with the big networks to buy service wholesale and then resells it to us, the consumer.

On their website, Walmart discloses the network most phones use right in the title description of the phone.

This phone, the Samsung Galaxy S III, has in its title line (CDMA-S) which means it will use the Sprint network.

As you scan the list of phones available on the Walmart website, you'll see that others will be denoted with either "CDMA-V" which use Verizon, or "GSM-A" that use AT&T.

So depending on what phone one chooses, their Straight Talk phone could use Verizon, Sprint, AT&T or even T-mobile.

Straight Talk is not "affiliated" with Sprint but they do contract to buy some bulk service from Sprint so that some of their phones will run on the Sprint network. Other Straight Talk Phones will use the Verizon network and others will use the AT&T network.

Straight Talk is actually "affiliated" with Mexico's América Móvil which is their parent company. So is Tracfone and Net10, other examples, a subsidiary of América Móvil.
