Question

is this phone gsm or cdma

asked 10 months ago

on Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S3 Prepaid Cell Phone, White

Answers
answer 1
Wayne, it is my understanding that the SIM card slot (slots) on this phone are used for LTE and since LTE is not accessible on this phone, the SIM card slots are "disabled."

My understanding is that the S968C is configured to be CDMA using Verizon. If the question is if the phone can be used with AT&T or T-Mobile, I'm certain that it will be very difficult and against Straight Talk's T&C of Service to re-configure the phone to use a GSM SIM card on the AT&T or T-Mobile network.

Please do further research on your own as you're getting conflicting answers here on this thread.

If your speaking of the S968C it is a CDMA but does have a sim slot not used when activating. The specs say it's a GSM compatible phone. The S968C is on the Verizon network.

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.

Yes, I am already a Straight Talk customer and was able to upgrade my phone with no problem. It was very easy to upgrade and keep my own number. If you are switching from another carrier, you can take your number, but it may take a few days to port it to the new service.

16gb but with all the apps and OS on it you have about 12gb left. You can always add a micro SD card as it has a slot for one on the back by the battery. slap a 32gb one in there and your set!

Nope...that's it.....That is why third party companies need to make extra dollars by selling extra stuff.....It's just like buying a car and if you want a navigational system in your car, you buy that item in order to have it.

Just to add, when you mentioned "cables" ...like most smartphones nowadays, the charger is a combination wall charger/USB cable. Therefore, you can disconnect the wall plug-in from the cable itself and have a USB cable to sync the phone to a computer, etc. or charge it via a USB connection.

I ordered a refurbished G3 from Straight Talk's website. They didn't say that it wouldn't work with Verizon towers. After multiple calls and 3 weeks with terrible service, I discovered that the S970L only works with Sprint towers and that I needed an S968C that works with Verizon towers. In my area it's predominately Verizon with little Sprint service. I had to send it back and I'm currently waiting to get a credit on my charge card. I went to my local Walmart and bought a new one and it's working great now.

they have phones that work on Verizon, ATT you have to request which one. But I would go with a Verizon pre paid plan as Straight talk customer service is the worst. And if you phone ever fails under warranty and they do not have that model in stock the will send a cheaper model in replacemnt

KayKay, there are several different versions of the SIII on Straight Talk each using different carriers/networks. However, the SIII featured on THIS page, the S968C, will in fact use Verizon for voice and 3G data.

This phone will not have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network and will only have "native" Verizon Wireless coverage meaning that the phone will not roam but use only Verizon-owned towers.
