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):

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.

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:

When you activate a new Straight Talk phone, you will given the choice of whether you want a new phone number or if you want to "port" your current number to use at Straight Talk.

So yes, if you want a new number, they will give you one.

Puffer, this particular phone (the one on THIS page), the S968C, will use the Verizon Wireless voice and 3G (EVDO Rev. A) network with NO access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

It is configured strictly for CDMA using Verizon and will not use AT&T towers at all.
