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.

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.

Unfortunately, the Straight Talk Terms and Conditions of Service prohibit tethering including using a phone as a hotspot. Therefore, the ability for this phone to be used as a hotspot has been disabled by Straight Talk.
