This particular phone with the model number S968C will be 3G only on the Verizon native network.

If still available, Straight Talk is selling another version of the SIII, which is 4G LTE but will use the Sprint native network. The model number for that version is S960L.

They both have essentially the same features and are offered at the same price but one is 3G only on Verizon and the other is 4G LTE capable but on Sprint.

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.

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.

The phone featured on THIS particular page uses the Verizon native network (no roaming). It does not have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network. It will be limited to 3G data speeds.

Straight Talk offers two versions of the SIII. This one, and a Sprint version which is a true 4G LTE phone. Straight Talk does not sell an AT&T version but you can purchase an unlocked GSM SIII from Walmart and then buy a SIM card from Straight Talk which uses AT&T or T-Mobile, your choice; one or the other.

Therefore, you have options on what network you want to use with an SIII on Straight Talk.

Verizon and AT&T will have the most comprehensive coverage if you travel a lot in the U.S. Keep in mind, however, there are some areas that do not have Verizon native service and one big one is Alaska ...no Verizon native coverage in Alaska.

I also travel a lot and have a Straight Talk phone that uses AT&T have found it has ubiquitous coverage in the places I travel. I also have a Verizon Mifi that can be used for wifi calls if I find myself in an area with no AT&T coverage so I'm pretty much covered no matter where I go. Both AT&T and Verizon will have good coverage in large metro areas ...and so will Sprint and T-Mobile for that matter but in rural areas, Verizon and AT&T are best.

Again, the phone featured on THIS page will use Verizon (native coverage only, no roaming).

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.

Hi JJ,

Straight Talk only uses Verizon

answer 2
Actually, both the Verizon and the Sprint versions have model numbers that start in "S" ...the Verizon version being SCH-S968C or S968C and the Sprint version being SCH-S960L or S960L.

jj, just make sure when you are ready to order to pay attention to the model number sequence.

If you see the numbers "968" anywhere within the model number sequence, it will be the Verizon version.

If you see the numbers "960" anywhere within the model number sequence, it will be the Sprint version.

If you desire the Sprint version, go to the link I gave in my previous post. If you want the Verizon version, you can order the phone featured on THIS page.

jj, Straight Talk sells two versions (in two colors) of the Samsung Galaxy SIII. The one featured on THIS page is the Verizon version in Marble White. Its model number is S968C and will use the Verizon native voice and 3G network (no roaming). It will NOT have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

The other version is the S960L which uses the Sprint native network. It is a true 4G LTE phone and will have very fast internet/data speeds if used in a Sprint LTE coverage area.

The S960L, the Sprint version, is available at Walmart for the same price in the Pebble Blue color (the Marble White color seems to be out of stock) and can be ordered from this page (copy-and-paste):
