This particular version of the SIII on Straight Talk uses Verizon -owned towers only (native coverage only, no roaming) and only with voice and EVDO 3G. It will not have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

However, other SIII versions on Straight Talk are on Sprint and AT&T and some unlocked GSM SIII phones can be using either AT&T or T-Mobile towers. It will all depend on what version you are using. But again, THIS phone, the S968C (the one featured on this page) will use Verizon.

Question

Is this the S960L or the S968C

I know that one model runs sprint, and the other verizon. I was wondering which one this is? We get 0 sprint here, but Verizon and AT&T are great here.
Thanks for any help!

Scotty, the phone featured on THIS page is the S968S.

Before placing an order, be sure to check at the bottom of the Walmart page featuring the phone and look under "Specifications." You will see a notation that says "Model No." If anywhere in the model number sequence, you see the numbers "968," it will be the Verizon version.

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

Take a look directly below on the page where you posted your question and you will see "Specifications" and below that "Model No."

Notice the STSAS968CWTPWP sequence and the "968" embedded in it?

Currently, the Verizon version is only available in the Marble White color and the Sprint version is only available in the Pebble Blue color online at Walmart. I'm not sure if they will offer the opposite colors again or not.

And, again, if you haven't seen my other posts, the Verzion version will not have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network. It will be limited to 3G data speeds.

The Sprint version, however, will be a true 4G LTE phone and will have very fast data/internet speeds if in an area where there is Sprint LTE coverage. But if you don't have any Sprint coverage where you are, then it's a moot point.

This model as far as I know it's a 16gb model. The samsung website states that it's expandable with a micro sd card upto 64gb. Usually most cellphones that I see are upto 32gb as far as expansion goes. Just don't go any fancy I think there is a certain type of micro sd that is only compatable with cellphones in general.

Internal memory? No, not without rooting and we shouldn't be discussing that here as it is against Straight Talk's Terms and Conditions of Service.

You can, however, bump the external/removable memory to either 32GB or 64GB by using a larger microSD card which you can easily slip into the slot inside the phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 uses the $45 plan. It is best to use wifi when ever you can to cut down on data usage. I have not had any problems with going over my data.

answer 3
This phone has WiFi built in.
If you are at home and you have WiFi on your home computer, turn off the Data feature and use WiFi only. Same if you are anyplace that offers WiFi, turn that on and turn off Data. Straight Talk actually suggests you do that to save the 3G Data load adding up to your total (2.5GB) for the $45 plan. Then go to the Google Play Store and download "My Data Manager" (free) so you can track how much you are using on Wifi or 3G (data). It shows you in neat bar and pie graphs.

I'm not sure if I'm understanding your question completely but if you are asking what options you have to access the internet with this phone, you basically have two:

1. Yes, you can access any public or private WiFi (private if you have an access code). Internet speed will be dependent upon the source quality and speed of the WiFi you are accessing.

2. You can access the internet via the phone's own mobile internet access. On this particular phone using the Straight Talk $45 Unlimited plan, you will be able to access the Verizon Wireless 3G network (no access to 4G LTE). You will be able to do this as long as you are within a Verizon 3G coverage area. By using the internet in this fashion, you will be under all rules and conditions of Straight Talk's Terms and Conditions of Service (which include possible throttling of data speed when reaching 2.5 GB until your 30-day cycle is over.
