16gb but with all the apps and OS on it you have about 12gb left. You can always add a micro SD card as it has a slot for one on the back by the battery. slap a 32gb one in there and your set!

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.

Yes, I am already a Straight Talk customer and was able to upgrade my phone with no problem. It was very easy to upgrade and keep my own number. If you are switching from another carrier, you can take your number, but it may take a few days to port it to the new service.

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.

If you order the phone on THIS page, it will be the SIII that uses Verizon. It will be limited to 3G data speeds and will NOT have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

The model number of the Verizon version of the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy SIII is SCH S968C so if you see "968" embedded anywhere in the model number, it will be the Verizon version.

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.

One correction to what I posted previously:

I believe in the lower left corner of the box in which the S960L (Sprint powered version) comes with will reflect the model number as "LTE-S" instead of S960L.

Yes, all Straight Talk phones will display the TracFone icon when they boot up as Straight Talk is a division of TracFone.

If you have this exact phone --model number SGH S968C-- it will be using the Verizon network.

If you have the SIII with the model number SGH S960L, it will be on the Sprint network.

Look at the front of the box the phone came in and at the bottom left corner, you will see either "S968C" which means the phone is on Verizon, or you will see "S960L" which will mean the phone is on Sprint.
