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.

answer 3
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.

As of right now, Straight Talk plans do not allow tethering and I have not seen any option in the settings of the phone to use it as a wi-fi hot spot.

Unfortunately, the Straight Talk Terms and Conditions of Service prohibit tethering including using a phone as a hotspot. Therefore, the ability for this phone to be used as a hotspot has been disabled by Straight Talk.

If the phone is straight talk it is through verizon cdma technology. If you get the phone from another company and you use let's say at & t sim card you will be on there system

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.

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!

answer 1
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.
