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.

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.

BOTH versions of the SIII that Straight Talk sells through Walmart are CDMA ...one on Sprint, the other on Verizon.

This one is the Verizon version and is limited to 3G data speeds. To "make sure" you are ordering the Verizon version, check to see that your order has "968" embedded somewhere in the model number (as has been pointed out for the model number of this phone).

If you want to save $50, order THIS phone (the Verizon version in White) from the link provided in my initial post at the bottom of this thread.

Put in zip code 73949.

You have to get a CDMA type of phone. This is stated on the packaging of the phones in the store. Or, if you order off the web, the one that is on sale now for $349, that is a CDMA phone - Model No.: STSAS968CWTPWP.

answer 4
alli, the simplest way to determine which version of the SIII you are ordering is this:

If you see "968" in the model number sequence, it is the Verizon version (which has the Samsung designation of SCH S968C). It will be limited to Verizon's 3G data network and will not have access to their 4G LTE network. If you order the phone on THIS page, it will be the Verizon version. Look below on this page under "Specifications" and you will see the model number listed as "STSAS968CWTPWP" ...notice the "968" embedded in that model number?

The Sprint version of the SIII will have "960" somewhere in its model number sequence. The Sprint version (or Samsung designation SCH S960L) will be a true 4G LTE phone and will have very fast internet speeds when in a Sprint LTE coverage area.

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:

answer 2
1. The color of the phone has nothing to do with the network it will use.

2. Straight Talk does NOT currently sell a Samsung Galaxy SIII that uses the AT&T network ...no matter what color it is.

3. The phone featured on this page (the S968C) will use the Verizon native network and it can't be changed. If you purchase THIS phone, it will be on Verizon whether you like it or not. It will be limited to 3G and will not have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

4. Again, THIS phone is NOT capable of accessing the Verizon 4G LTE network.

5. Same rules apply ...Straight Talk has the ability to throttle your data speed once 2.5 GB is reached. It will be reset back to "high speed" (in this case, 3G speeds) once your current 30-day cycle is over and you add additional service.

answer 4
No, neither of the SIII phones Straight Talk sells through Walmart will use AT&T. The one on THIS page (the S968C) will use Verizon. The other version, the S960L, will use Sprint. There is nothing you can do to change that.

The phone featured on THIS page, the S968C, will be limited to 3G and will not have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

The S960L, using Sprint, will be a true 4G LTE phone. It will have extremely fast internet/data speeds when located in a Sprint LTE coverage area. However, as we all know, the Sprint LTE network does not have as extensive a coverage footprint as either Verizon or AT&T.

If you are in an area of Sprint LTE coverage, you can order the S960L here (copy-and-paste):

White:

www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-White/24223720

Pebble Blue:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-Pre-Paid-Smartphone/23573710

Any phone used with one of the Straight Talk Unlimited Plans (and the SIII requires one of the Unlimited Plans), will be under the 2.5GB soft cap rules. Or, they have the right to throttle data speeds once that threshold is reached ...it doesn't necessarily mean that it will happen but they have the right to do so.

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.

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.

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.

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.
