I gave the M4 answer as that is what Samsung reports on the spec page for this phone. It may well be a misprint.

Copy-and-paste for the specifications ...it is near the bottom of the page under "Calling Functions - Features":

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.

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):

Hello Kat,
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.
answered 1 year, 2 months ago

answer 4
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.
