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 I can't see paying this much for an outdated 3G plan.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.

No this only runs on 4G service on Verizon service....... however you will save hundreds of dollars a year over Verizon service.... if you do the math.
I don't know if I can answer your question or not,but I will tell you what is on my phone. this is only mine second smart phone, the first was a cheap one. so I'm not to smart on all this stuff, still learning. but I got my phone on black Friday that how long I have had it. under the setting [about device] it says 4.1 android version.that all I see that might help.
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.
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):
...as you can see in the description its features, it will state "LTE Dual-Band 4/17"
No its not the 4 is for a couple hundred more dollars lol
