Yes, it is. It is the Verizon version of the SIII. The both have the Walmart designation of STSAS968CWTPWP or Samsung's model number S968C.

A word of caution, the Verizon version will not have access to their 4G LTE network and will be limited to 3G speeds.

For those interested in basically saving $50, order this phone here (copy-and-paste):

If you mean the one in the following link, yes it is (copy-and-paste):

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-w-Bonus-100-Walmart-Gift-Card-Value-Bundle/30135930

The phone is the S968C (or Walmart's designation STSAS968CWTPWP) which is the version that uses the Verizon network.

Remember, however, that the Verizon version will not have access to the 4G LTE network and will be limited to 3G speeds only.

For anybody else, if you order this phone by going to the page referenced in the link above, you'll essentially be saving $50 on this phone ...or enough to purchase your first month of service and $5 leftover for a beer.

Mine is running on Verizon and you know sometimes based on your area and the towers around you. I live in New York and mine is running on Verizon. You know when you purchase the phone and make a call or call 411.. I was told it would run on Sprint, but I am on Verizon and loving it

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.

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.

answer 3
This particular phone will be limited to 3G per the agreement Straight Talk has with Verizon Wireless. As I understand it, Verizon currently does not allow any MVNO access to their 4G LTE network (with one exception, Millenicom using a hotspot).

So no, unfortunately, using a SIM or any other alteration you make to this particular phone will not allow it to access 4G.

(Straight Talk does have another version of the SIII that is a true 4G LTE phone but it runs on Sprint. The model number for that phone is S960L. However, as you know, the Sprint LTE network is quite a bit smaller than Verizon's.)

YES!! it's VERY simple on how to "port" your number with Straight Talk.......

It was free to transfer my number from Verizon.....and my phones have all used Verizon towers!! The best of both worlds for 30 bucks a month less.

Go to StraightTalk.com and read up on how easy it is to port your number. It can be done instantly too. No waiting days.

Yes, at activation with Straight Talk, you will be given the choice of having a new number assigned to the phone or porting your current number.

If porting your current number, be prepared to give Straight Talk during activation:

1. Your contact Information as it is registered with your current service provider including your ZIP code.

2. Your account number with your current provider

3. The PIN or password to your account

Be sure to keep your current service active as that is a requirement for porting.
