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):

I found out that as long as you buy the white S3 from straight talk it will run on verizon towers. I have one and works great. Hope this helps.

Kat, if you order the phone on this page, it will use the Verizon native network but will be limited to 3G data speeds with no access to Verizon's 4G LTE network. It will use Verizon no matter where you are in the U.S.

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:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-w-Bonus-50-Walmart-Gift-Card-Value-Bundle/35457224

There is also a Sprint version of this phone which is a true 4G LTE device but in your area, Sprint does not yet have 4G LTE.

answer 2
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:

answer 2
1. The color of the phone has nothing to do with the network it will use.

2. Straight Talk does NOT currently sell a Samsung Galaxy SIII that uses the AT&T network ...no matter what color it is.

3. The phone featured on this page (the S968C) will use the Verizon native network and it can't be changed. If you purchase THIS phone, it will be on Verizon whether you like it or not. It will be limited to 3G and will not have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

4. Again, THIS phone is NOT capable of accessing the Verizon 4G LTE network.

5. Same rules apply ...Straight Talk has the ability to throttle your data speed once 2.5 GB is reached. It will be reset back to "high speed" (in this case, 3G speeds) once your current 30-day cycle is over and you add additional service.

No, neither of the SIII phones Straight Talk sells through Walmart will use AT&T. The one on THIS page (the S968C) will use Verizon. The other version, the S960L, will use Sprint. There is nothing you can do to change that.

The phone featured on THIS page, the S968C, will be limited to 3G and will not have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

The S960L, using Sprint, will be a true 4G LTE phone. It will have extremely fast internet/data speeds when located in a Sprint LTE coverage area. However, as we all know, the Sprint LTE network does not have as extensive a coverage footprint as either Verizon or AT&T.

If you are in an area of Sprint LTE coverage, you can order the S960L here (copy-and-paste):

White:

www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-White/24223720

Pebble Blue:

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

Any phone used with one of the Straight Talk Unlimited Plans (and the SIII requires one of the Unlimited Plans), will be under the 2.5GB soft cap rules. Or, they have the right to throttle data speeds once that threshold is reached ...it doesn't necessarily mean that it will happen but they have the right to do so.
