The weird thing is they are all under Tracephone, but you can not interchange them. If you get a net10 phone you will have to use net10 service, etc.

This particular phone (model #S968C) will be using the Verizon native network, 3G only.

Although Straight Talk and Net10 are subsidiaries of Tracfone (or more accurately, América Móvil), they will each use their own devices and plans which are generally not interchangeable with each other.

If you purchase this particular phone, you will be required to use a Straight Talk plan only. You will not be able to use a Tracfone or Net10 plan.

What does Verizon Native mean? How do I know if this phone will work in my area?

I have already bought and will return the Galaxy SIII 4lte because I had no reception in my area although the zip I entered said it would work. I'm a little nervous now to try this one and it not work too.

Hi Heidi;

Native means the non roaming areas of verizons network and if your phone is not working you need to go into settings and make sure your phone is set up got to settings-wireless & network-more settings-mobile networks-network mode-LTE/CDMA. If that does not work see if your phone works anywhere close if so you know your phone had a dead area where you live. Verizon network is the largest and it usually works most places. Which is the same network for Straighttalk who they say they use the Trac-Phone network which is indeed verizon..

Verizon Native means their service without using other carriers towers when in a Verizon dead zone. If you check the Verizon service map for 3 G Data and or Verizon Prepaid map you will see the coverage you will receive with this service. It is still great coverage.

When it is said that the phone works on the Verizon NATIVE network, it means that it will use the towers that Verizon actually owns ...and there will be no roaming on other carrier's towers/networks.

A good way to determine whether you will have Verizon native coverage where you plan to use the phone is to use the Verizon coverage map where you can put in an address and hone in on it to determine the signal strength and coverage (copy-and-paste):

http://vzwmap.verizonwireless.com/dotcom/coveragelocator/

Choose the button titled "Prepaid" to see the voice coverage. Native coverage will be in the purple shaded areas only.

Choose the button titled "Data Coverage" to see the 3G data coverage. Native coverage will be in the orange/peach shaded areas designated as "Digital Coverage." You will not have coverage in the reddish-shaded areas designated as "Extended Digital Coverage" as these will be "roaming" areas from towers not owned by Verizon and, of course, you will not have coverage in the white-shaded areas designated as "No Coverage."

Disregard the button that says "4G LTE Data Coverage" as this phone will not have access to 4G LTE.

You should be able to tell pretty closely if the phone will work at home or work or wherever else you plan to use it by using this map and inserting an address.

You can hold on to it.. But once you have it you will probably want to activate it. I brought mine in November.. Tried to wait until Christmas to use it.. Activated it three days after I got it.

You can activate it whenever you'd like.

However, remember to keep in mind the return policy. If you wait months to activate it, you will no longer have the ability to exchange it for another model if you are not satisfied. If you wait over a year to activate, you'll forfeit the manufacturer's warranty.

I see Walmart has it in a dark blue/purple (copy-and-paste):

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/quicklook.do?itemId=29010041&componentId=1&QLfunctionality=2&t=1386130976335

However, it has to be purchased in a bundle that includes a case for $399:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-w-Bonus-Straight-Talk-Case-Value-Bundle/30135930#ProductDetail

(scroll to middle of the page to select the purple-colored phone)

I am not seeing the darker colored one anywhere else than in the bundle. The Sprint version (S960L) does come in the darker color, however.

ampatrick, I now see the one you must be referring to. The one that is featured on the Walmart website for $399 is in a bundle. It includes a case. The bundle or the phone and the case together is $399.00.

The phone is the same as this one as it's a model S968C (STSAS968CPWP) that uses the Verizon network and is limited to 3G.

Not sure what you may be referring to as Straight Talk has two versions of the SIII that Walmart is selling. Right now, as of today, they both are priced at $299 (although both are designated as "out of stock" at the moment).

One model is the S968C which is this phone. It runs on Verizon and is limited to 3G only.

The other model is the S960L and runs on Sprint. It is a true 4G LTE phone.

However, I do see the S960L, the one that uses Sprint, on the Straight Talk website (not Walmart) for $399.99 in both colors.

No. Straight Talk currently has two versions of the SIII they are offering for sale through Walmart. One uses the Verizon network (this one) which is limited to 3G only and the other uses the Sprint network which will have access to Sprint's 4G LTE network.

This one has the model number of S968C.

The Sprint version has the model number of S960L.

Currently, there is no AT&T version of the SIII that Walmart is selling.
