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.

When you activate a new Straight Talk phone, you will given the choice of whether you want a new phone number or if you want to "port" your current number to use at Straight Talk.

So yes, if you want a new number, they will give you one.

One correction to what I posted previously:

I believe in the lower left corner of the box in which the S960L (Sprint powered version) comes with will reflect the model number as "LTE-S" instead of S960L.
answered 1 year, 5 months ago
By
richardarr
answer 4
Yes, all Straight Talk phones will display the TracFone icon when they boot up as Straight Talk is a division of TracFone.

If you have this exact phone --model number SGH S968C-- it will be using the Verizon network.

If you have the SIII with the model number SGH S960L, it will be on the Sprint network.

Look at the front of the box the phone came in and at the bottom left corner, you will see either "S968C" which means the phone is on Verizon, or you will see "S960L" which will mean the phone is on Sprint.

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.

answer 4
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.

The phone has GPS - it uses Google maps and works great. I'm not sure about a stylus. The touchscreen is really user friendly, so I don't know why you'd need one.
