The phones themselves are exactly the same. however, on Walmart's website the one listed as S3 (white #STSAS968CWTPWP)uses the Verizon network. And the one listed as S III (blue #S960L) uses the Sprint network.

John, I’m not a Walmart employee but maybe I can clear up a few things.

First, the S3 and SIII are one and the same …just expressed differently. Officially, Samsung calls it the “S III” but some will write it as “S3” for simplicity purposes, I guess.

Now, pertaining to the differences between the SII and the SIII, the two major differences that immediately come to my mind are:

1. the S III has an updated Android Operating System, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich compared to the S II’s 2.3 Gingerbread

2. the S III has a larger screen, 4.8” compared to the S II’s 4.3” (the larger screen actually makes quite a bit of difference)

There are other difference in specifications but you can go to the Samsung website to do a detailed comparison.

And, as I’ve mentioned on quite a few of my answers here, there are TWO (2) versions of the S III that Straight Talk is selling through Walmart.

One has the model number of S968C which is THIS phone and will run on Verizon’s native network. It will be limited to 3G speeds.

The other S III being sold by Straight Talk through Walmart has the model number of S960L (or LTE-S on the box). It will be Sprint powered and is a true 4G LTE phone. Therefore, it will be extremely fast if being operated in an area where there is a good Sprint 4G LTE signal. In that case, it will be much faster than the Verizon version which is limited to 3G. However, we all know that Sprint has a much smaller coverage footprint compared to Verizon so if you are ordering the S860L, be sure you have good Sprint coverage in the places you plan to use the phone.

Both phones, as of today, are now being sold for the same price.

answer 4
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.

I gave the M4 answer as that is what Samsung reports on the spec page for this phone. It may well be a misprint.

Copy-and-paste for the specifications ...it is near the bottom of the page under "Calling Functions - Features":

Hi JJ,

Straight Talk only uses Verizon

answer 2
Actually, both the Verizon and the Sprint versions have model numbers that start in "S" ...the Verizon version being SCH-S968C or S968C and the Sprint version being SCH-S960L or S960L.

jj, just make sure when you are ready to order to pay attention to the model number sequence.

If you see the numbers "968" anywhere within the model number sequence, it will be the Verizon version.

If you see the numbers "960" anywhere within the model number sequence, it will be the Sprint version.

If you desire the Sprint version, go to the link I gave in my previous post. If you want the Verizon version, you can order the phone featured on THIS page.

jj, Straight Talk sells two versions (in two colors) of the Samsung Galaxy SIII. The one featured on THIS page is the Verizon version in Marble White. Its model number is S968C and will use the Verizon native voice and 3G network (no roaming). It will NOT have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

The other version is the S960L which uses the Sprint native network. It is a true 4G LTE phone and will have very fast internet/data speeds if used in a Sprint LTE coverage area.

The S960L, the Sprint version, is available at Walmart for the same price in the Pebble Blue color (the Marble White color seems to be out of stock) and can be ordered from this page (copy-and-paste):

Hi Kat with a C,

A locked phone simply means that your phone is exclusive to that carrier and only to that carrier. An UNlocked phone means, you can use this phone on almost all of the networks such as AT&T, Sprint Verizon, Metro PCS and so forth, but will require registration and a network code that you can purchase from them.

answer 3
unlocked phone is what you need. If you want to switch over with your existing phone then you would need to have your phone unlocked unless it's already done. Locked phones means it's still locked into the service it is right now. I'm not sure about CDMA phones but that's what you have to do with phones that need sim cards.

answer 4
A locked phone is one that is "locked" to a particular provider or carrier. It normally is intended to be used with one provider only and can't be "easily" switched from provider to provider without "unlocking." The phones Straight Talk sells (both GSM and CDMA) can be considered "locked" to Straight Talk service and you agree to use it on the network carrier that is predetermined by Straight Talk.

The particular phone on THIS page, the Samsung Galaxy SIII S968C, is a CDMA phone that uses Verizon "native" network and and can be considered "locked" to Straight Talk service. By purchasing this phone, you agree to use it as configured.

An unlocked new phone pertaining to Straight Talk service is generally a GSM phone that can accept a SIM card. Using it at Straight Talk would require it to be used with either the AT&T network or the T-Mobile network. Walmart carries an extensive offering of unlocked GSM phones that can be used at Straight Talk. Once purchasing the new unlocked GSM phone, you then will have to purchase a SIM card from Straight Talk (or another provider if not using Straight Talk) for it to function as intended.
