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.

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.

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.

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.

It did at one time but, unfortunately, I no longer see that particular bundle available. When it was available, you had to order it from a different page than this one. I spent some time to look for that bundle but all I could find was a page that said that it was no longer available.

If you mean "4G LTE," then no, this particular phone featured on this page (the S968C) will not have access to Verizon's LTE network. It will be limited to Verizon 3G (EVDO Rev A).

Straight Talk's other version of the SIII WILL have access to 4G LTE but will use Sprint. The model number is S960L and it will be a true 4G LTE phone but as we all know, Sprint's coverage footprint is much smaller than Verizon's. If you are in a good Sprint coverage area, the S960L will be very fast; much more so than this phone. You can order it here (copy-and-paste):

Do you mean 4G "LTE?" ...if so, no, this particular version of Straight Talk's Samsung Galaxy S3 (the S968C) will not have access to 4G LTE. It will be limited to 3G only using Verizon native coverage.

If you want the same phone that does have access to 4G LTE, you'd have to order the Sprint version (or the S960L), which will be a true 4G LTE phone but will use Sprint which as we all know has a far smaller coverage footprint both generally and for LTE.

However, if you are in an area where you have Sprint LTE, the S960L will be extremely fast. Go here to see the phone in the Pebble Blue color (copy-and-paste):
