You will have to purchase your first month with the purchase of your phone. You do not get a free month with your purchase of the phone. There are a couple different unlimited plans to choose from. But if you are concerned that the Samsung Galaxy S3 won't have the same plans as the other Straight Talk phones, you have to worry no longer. All their phones can get the same, individually purchased plans from Straight Talk. What's more is that you can get the $45 unlimited plan one month and go to the $60 plan the next. That's the glory of pay-as-you-go phones.

charlene, the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy SIII does not come with service. You will have to purchase that separately and have service covered for at least 30-days in advance in order to keep the phone's cellular features functional.

You can purchase the initial 30-days directly from Straight Talk when you activate the phone with a credit or debit card. Or you can purchase a $45 Unlimited Plan card at Walmart. If you purchase service from Walmart, you will have to transfer a code to Straight Talk at activation. That's why I personally recommend that you purchase the initial 30-days of service directly from Straight Talk at the time of activation as there is less hassle without the need to transfer a code. After the initial 30-days, you can decide which method you want to use. I also recommend that you do not purchase more than 30-days of service initially until you determine that Straight Talk service is right for you as any service you purchase is non-refundable.

You have many options once you find that Straight Talk service is right for you as you can purchase service in advance in blocks of 90-, 180-, or 365-days or have Straight Talk put you on Auto-refill where they will automatically charge your credit or debit card each month for service in advance.

answer 1
No, this phone does not come in black. The only available colors that come in are: Pebble Blue, Marble White or Brown.

To activate, you will need to purchase a $30, $45 or $60 and call Straight Talk and give them your ESN/IMEI which is provided with the phone

It comes in black and white. Activation is fairly simple and it is located in the packaging with step-by-step instructions. You can either call the number in the package or go to straight talks website. From there you will need to enter information also located in the package.

There are many cases to choose from that will fit nicely and protect your phone. I found myself a more personally fitting one from an Etsy seller, though any found at Walmart would be suitable. The rubber based ones hug and create a more slip resistant phone. (Which is what I bought.) They are available in a plethora of colors so your white or black phone is just a basis to so many options!

dj, originally, Straight Talk offered the Samsung Galaxy SIII in four individual configurations.

1. The S968C which uses the Verizon native network and is limited to 3G data speeds with no access to Verizon's 4G LTE network ...in MARBLE WHITE (The phone featured on THIS page).

2. The S968C which uses the Verizon native network and is limited to 3G data speeds with no access to Verizon's 4G LTE network ...in PEBBLE BLUE which is a very dark purple/blue color; not BLACK.

3. The S860L which uses the Sprint native network and is a true 4G LTE phone. It will have very fast internet/data speeds when being operated in a Sprint LTE coverage area ...in MARBLE WHITE

4. The S860L which uses the Sprint native network and is a true 4G LTE phone. It will have very fast internet/data speeds when being operated in a Sprint LTE coverage area ...in PEBBLE BLUE.

Currently, only #1, the phone on THIS page and #4, the PEBBLE BLUE S960L using Sprint are in stock online at Walmart. Go to this page to order the S960L in PEBBLE BLUE (copy-and-paste):

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-Pre-Paid-Smartphone/23573710

Once you receive the phone, enclosed in the box will be an "activation card" which will give you step-by-step instructions on how to activate the phone. You can either do it online or over the phone with a Straight Talk representative. At the time of activation, you will have the opportunity to "port" your current phone number if you wish and will also be able to charge on a credit or debit card the first 30-days of service.

Yes, currently, white is the only color available for the SIII that uses Verizon. They are out of stock for the Pebble Blue color phone.

However, be careful as the Sprint version of the SIII in White is also currently available.

If you order the phone that is featured on THIS page, it will be the Verizon version.

The way you can tell is that the Verizon version will have the numbers "968" embedded somewhere in the Walmart model number designation (the Samsung model designation is S968C).

The Sprint version will have the numbers "960" embedded somewhere in the Walmart model number designation (as the Sprint version will have the Samsung designation of S960L).

If you look below on this page, you will see a section titled "Specifications" and if you look under that heading, you will see "Model No.:" ...do you see the "968" inside that number?

The answer should be "yes." Therefore, the phone on this page is the Verizon version of the SIII.

If you order the phone on THIS page, it will be the SIII that uses Verizon. It will be limited to 3G data speeds and will NOT have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

The model number of the Verizon version of the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy SIII is SCH S968C so if you see "968" embedded anywhere in the model number, it will be the Verizon version.

The Sprint version has the model number of SCH S960L and will be a true 4G LTE phone. It will have very fast data/internet speeds if in a Sprint LTE coverage area. If you see "960" embedded in the Walmart model number for the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy SIII, it will be the Sprint version.

ANYONE ORDERING A STRAIGHT TALK SIII, BE SURE TO NOTE THE MODEL NUMBER ON THE PAGE IN WHICH YOU ARE ORDERING THE PHONE TO MAKE SURE YOU WILL GET THE VERSION YOU DESIRE.
