I bought my S III directly from Straight Talk website and it operates on the Sprint network. Since Sprint is in the process of UPGRADING their network from 3G to 4G LTE, this phone WILL switch between operating networks. The model that I have is the SCH-S960L ......

Officially, no. As per the Straight Talk Terms and Conditions, you agree when purchasing the phone to use it with Straight Talk plans only.

From a physical standpoint, this is a CDMA device and incompatible with T-mobile anyway.

If you prefer T-mobile service, you might want to look at the Walmart Family Mobile plans that use T-Mobile exclusively. I think they sell a Galaxy S3 that will be T-Mobile.

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.

This is from a poster on the boards....I copied it. I went through many of the replies on here to see what the differences were with the phones.....make sure you get the VERIZON phone.....you will get better reception, and less outages.

Be careful to get the carrier you prefer when you order because Walmart carries two Samsung S3 phones, one that uses the Sprint network (blue #S960L) and one that uses the Verizon network (white #STSAS968CWTPWP).

Yes. I think the difference in the # only designates 'white' (968cWTpwp) WT meaning white, but both are verizon. If it has s960 in the model number, it's Sprint. I've heard bad things about Sprint so I'm going w/ Verizon spec. phone. I'll get it in a few days to see what service is like.

Essentially, there are two versions of the SIII that Straight Talk sells. Both versions come both in white and pebble blue.

This phone and its pebble blue counterpart will have in their coding "968" and will use the Verizon native network. The S968C will be limited to 3G only on Verizon.

The other version which also is sold in both white and pebble blue will have "960" inside its code. It will use the Sprint native network and is a true 4G LTE phone. It will be blazing fast in a Sprint LTE coverage area. However, as we all know, the Sprint coverage footprint is very small compared to Verizon in general coverage but especially when comparing LTE coverage.

Therefore, in summary, there are four phones you can order:

1. the S968C using Verizon in White
2. the S968C using Verizon in Pebble Blue
3. the S960L (or S960C, can be either L or C) using Sprint in White
4. the S960L (or S960C, can be either L or C) using Sprint in Pebble Blue

It depends on the Carrier you currently have and your status with them. They are the ones who unlock and allow you to port your number to Straight Talk so call your current carrier. If you already have Straight Talk yes you can but you need to have both phones active and port or you may never get your number back. Bluetooth is excellent. Even syncs with my Ford but I know that it does not work well with the Hondas since they have not updated their technology for Bluetooth.

You can keep your same number, I did, but don't cancel your other phone until after you have activated this phone. Sometimes Straighttalk customer service is aggravating but be patient with them and you'll do fine. Yes, it has bluetooth.

Straight Talk currently has two versions out now in the Galaxy S3.

This phone, Straight Talk's Samsung Galaxy S3 with the model number S968C will be on Verizon ...with NO 4G LTE and will work on Verizon's native coverage only.

Straight Talk's Galaxy S3 with the model number of S960L, if still available, will be on Sprint WITH 4G LTE.

I think some reviewers might get the two mixed up because you have to look carefully at the model number. The Sprint model will say in the description that it is an LTE-capable phone. The Verizon version will not mention LTE nor 4G at all in the description. The two phones look alike and have virtually the same features but one will be on Sprint and have access to true 4G LTE and the other will be on Verizon and will be 3G only.

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.

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.

answer 3
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.
