The box or paperwork should tell you. If the box shows cdma-v then you are powered by verizon.
I don't think straight talk uses AT&T towers.

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.

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.

The phones themselves are exactly the same. however, on Walmart's website the one listed as S3 (white #STSAS968CWTPWP)uses the Verizon network. And the one listed as S III (blue #S960L) uses the Sprint network.

answer 4
John, I’m not a Walmart employee but maybe I can clear up a few things.

First, the S3 and SIII are one and the same …just expressed differently. Officially, Samsung calls it the “S III” but some will write it as “S3” for simplicity purposes, I guess.

Now, pertaining to the differences between the SII and the SIII, the two major differences that immediately come to my mind are:

1. the S III has an updated Android Operating System, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich compared to the S II’s 2.3 Gingerbread

2. the S III has a larger screen, 4.8” compared to the S II’s 4.3” (the larger screen actually makes quite a bit of difference)

There are other difference in specifications but you can go to the Samsung website to do a detailed comparison.

And, as I’ve mentioned on quite a few of my answers here, there are TWO (2) versions of the S III that Straight Talk is selling through Walmart.

One has the model number of S968C which is THIS phone and will run on Verizon’s native network. It will be limited to 3G speeds.

The other S III being sold by Straight Talk through Walmart has the model number of S960L (or LTE-S on the box). It will be Sprint powered and is a true 4G LTE phone. Therefore, it will be extremely fast if being operated in an area where there is a good Sprint 4G LTE signal. In that case, it will be much faster than the Verizon version which is limited to 3G. However, we all know that Sprint has a much smaller coverage footprint compared to Verizon so if you are ordering the S860L, be sure you have good Sprint coverage in the places you plan to use the phone.

Both phones, as of today, are now being sold for the same price.

answer 4
Although Net10 and Straight Talk are both subsidiaries of TracFone, each division will have its own plans that only work on phones sold by that division. In other words, they are not interchangeable. Straight Talk phones are intended to use Straight Talk plans and Net10 phones are intended to be used on Net10 plans, etc.

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.

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.
