Question

Does the straight talk samsung galaxy s3 run off of Verizon towers?

I live far away from town, and Verizon seems to work best where I live.

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.

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 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.

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.
