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.

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.

BOTH versions of the SIII that Straight Talk sells through Walmart are CDMA ...one on Sprint, the other on Verizon.

This one is the Verizon version and is limited to 3G data speeds. To "make sure" you are ordering the Verizon version, check to see that your order has "968" embedded somewhere in the model number (as has been pointed out for the model number of this phone).

If you want to save $50, order THIS phone (the Verizon version in White) from the link provided in my initial post at the bottom of this thread.

Put in zip code 73949.

You have to get a CDMA type of phone. This is stated on the packaging of the phones in the store. Or, if you order off the web, the one that is on sale now for $349, that is a CDMA phone - Model No.: STSAS968CWTPWP.

answer 4
alli, the simplest way to determine which version of the SIII you are ordering is this:

If you see "968" in the model number sequence, it is the Verizon version (which has the Samsung designation of SCH S968C). It will be limited to Verizon's 3G data network and will not have access to their 4G LTE network. If you order the phone on THIS page, it will be the Verizon version. Look below on this page under "Specifications" and you will see the model number listed as "STSAS968CWTPWP" ...notice the "968" embedded in that model number?

The Sprint version of the SIII will have "960" somewhere in its model number sequence. The Sprint version (or Samsung designation SCH S960L) will be a true 4G LTE phone and will have very fast internet speeds when in a Sprint LTE coverage area.

Currently (as I write this) Walmart is running a special offer where they are giving a $50 gift card with the purchase of the White S968C, the Verizon version, which is essentially a $50 price reduction for the phone offered on this page. Copy-and-paste for the special bundle:

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.
