answer 2
Great question to ask as it will be interesting to confirm if this phone is running on Verizon. All that I've hear is that this S968C will in fact be the Verizon version of Straight Talk's S3.

However, it will not offer 4G LTE data and will be limited to 3G only. Not a bad thing as even Verizon's own prepaid phones do not offer LTE.

I've also read that Straight Talk will hesitate to sell the Verizon version to those in good Sprint areas. They will instead offer the S960L which is the Sprint version of the S3. The workaround suggested is to put in a Verizon ZIP code (such as 73949 or 82210, etc.) and then change the ZIP back to your own when placing the order.

Question

is this a 4G LTE phone????

Straight Talk, Samsung Galaxy S3. This should be a 4G LTE phone but don't see any mention of it for verizon straight talk service. I can't see paying this much for an outdated 3G plan. If it is 4G capable I'll go buy it today. Hope somebody knows.

It is a 4g lte phone lol. According to straight talk you get 2.5G at high speed then they slow you down. I've jad my phone about two weeks and have't touched that. But I primarily use mine for texting my boss and emplyees, several e-mail a day a a little web browsing.

Sorry no 4G allowed on Verizon prepaid phones. It does have a SIM card slot that is open. Maybe in the future it will have 4G, or maybe you can get the straight talk sim from AT&T and use that? Duno.

This particular phone is the C968C which uses Verizon but, you're correct, it is limited to 3G.

Straight Talk sells two versions of the SIII through Walmart. Simply put it's as follows:

1. One version is this particular phone with the model number of S968C. Which again, runs on the Verizon native network at only 3G data speeds. The current price online at Walmart as of today is $399.

2. The other version is the S960L or designated on the box as "LTE-S." This phone is Sprint powered and is true 4G LTE. The current price online at Walmart as of today is $299.

So, one must make the choice of a Straight Talk SIII which is a true 4G LTE phone that is on the Sprint native network which we all know has a small coverage footprint compared to other major carriers.

OR

A Straight Talk SIII that uses the Verizon network but does not have LTE and is limited to 3G but with a very extensive 3G nationwide network.

The Sprint version or model number S960L can be viewed here (copy-and-paste):

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S-III-Pre-Paid-Smartphone/23573710

...as you can see in the description its features, it will state "LTE Dual-Band 4/17"

Question

4GB MicroSD Card?

Walmart.com's description of this phone states it comes with a 4GB MicroSD card. I just received this phone and it's not in the box or the phone itself. I looked on straighttalk.com and their description of this phone states it does not include one, but I'm unsure as to if Walmart.com was offering a special deal that was supposed to include one. Did anyone else that ordered this phone receive the SD card? I ordered it during the Black Friday special... I'm trying to figure out if my phone is lacking the card or if walmart.com's description was incorrect.

The weird thing is when I purchased the phone I was scared because it says it is on Sprint network so I decided to just give it a try, but once I purchase it I found out it is on Verizon. I am in New York so I am not sure if it depends on what your location is.

This phone with the model number S968C --or STSAS968CWTPWP-- will be on Verizon (native coverage only ...no roaming) and is limited to 3G. Just make sure you see somewhere in the model number this sequence: S968C

The version that runs on Sprint will have the model number S960L. It will be a true 4G LTE capable device but as we all know, Sprint's 4G LTE coverage footprint is very small compared to Verizon.

Again, if you don't want the Sprint version, make sure that "S960L" does not appear anywhere in the model number sequence.

This particular phone with the model number S968C will be 3G only on the Verizon native network.

If still available, Straight Talk is selling another version of the SIII, which is 4G LTE but will use the Sprint native network. The model number for that version is S960L.

They both have essentially the same features and are offered at the same price but one is 3G only on Verizon and the other is 4G LTE capable but on Sprint.

Although Net10 and Straight Talk are both subsidiaries of TracFone, each division will have its own plans that only work on phones sold by that division. In other words, they are not interchangeable. Straight Talk phones are intended to use Straight Talk plans and Net10 phones are intended to be used on Net10 plans, etc.
