Chuchu, if you're still here and if you have not yet purchased that interim phone, the Samsung Galaxy Ace that I mentioned in my previous post has just become even a better deal.

I just noticed that Walmart is selling it now for $149.88 with a $50 Walmart gift card included which essentially brings the price down to $99.88 !!

This is an EXCELLENT deal for a phone with specs such as the S765C has. And it is confirmed that it does use the Verizon network.

I spoke too soon in my post below. There is a new Verizon (or I "think" its on Verizon) phone that Straight Talk is introducing and is now available at Walmart online.

It's the Samsung Galaxy Ace which has excellent specs for a $150-phone. It has an Android 4.3 JellyBean OS, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and a front camera.

This might be a good interim phone for you until you can purchase either a S4 or S5.

Straight Talk has already offered the S4 and it wasn't offered for too long a period of time. I'm not so sure that Straight Talk will offer the Galaxy S4 again or not. When the were selling it, it used the T-Mobile network ...I'm assuming you want a phone that uses Verizon? My hunch is that ST will not sell it again but I don't have inside knowledge ...it's just my hunch.

Read about Straight Talk's S4 here (copy-and-paste):

http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2013/11/straight-talk-samsung-galaxy-s4-now.html

I'm not sure what the next new Straight Talk phone that uses Verizon will be. Straight Talk has just recently introduced the Moto G running on T-Mobile and the Alcatel OneTouch Sonic 4G LTE running on AT&T. It would have been nice to see one of them, especially the Moto G, running on Verizon but no dice. There haven't been any new Straight Talk Verizon phones introduced for awhile now so perhaps they are moving away from Verizon? ...not sure.

If you're not adamant about having a Straight Talk phone that uses Verizon, there are some nice choices for Straight Talk phones using GSM ...T-Mobile and AT&T. I'm one who likes the AT&T network so I'm personally happy to see all the new alternatives Straight Talk is offering, plus all the unlocked GSM phones that we can use with Straight Talk. Can't talk you into a GSM phone?

Smuckatelli, BOTH the Verizon version and the Sprint version will have a "C" at the end. The "C" signifies CDMA. Both Verizon and Sprint are CDMA.

I think the best way to make sure that the SIII you order is the Verizon version is to look for the "968" somewhere within the model number.

Walmart designates the phone featured on THIS page as "STSAS968CWTPWP" ...note the "968" embedded within that model number?

Mandy, the phone featured on THIS page will run off Verizon towers. It is the S968C. If you want a a Straight Talk SIII that uses Verizon, be sure to order from THIS page and confirm that the digits "968" appear somewhere within the model number.

This phone will use Verizon voice and 3G networks; native coverage only. There is no access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

Straight Talk offers another version of the SIII that uses Sprint which is a 4G LTE phone. Don't get them mixed up as many have done if you desire the Verizon version.

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.

Wayne, it is my understanding that the SIM card slot (slots) on this phone are used for LTE and since LTE is not accessible on this phone, the SIM card slots are "disabled."

My understanding is that the S968C is configured to be CDMA using Verizon. If the question is if the phone can be used with AT&T or T-Mobile, I'm certain that it will be very difficult and against Straight Talk's T&C of Service to re-configure the phone to use a GSM SIM card on the AT&T or T-Mobile network.

Please do further research on your own as you're getting conflicting answers here on this thread.

If your speaking of the S968C it is a CDMA but does have a sim slot not used when activating. The specs say it's a GSM compatible phone. The S968C is on the Verizon network.

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.
