They claim that they use verizon towers but with the poor coverage myself and many others have gotten with only 1-2 bars, alot of times no bars no matter where you go, and hardly any internet. I drop as low as 1x hardly ever the 3G. only time i get good internet is when i use the Wifi. I know Verizon has much better coverage than this. so if they do use verizon towers its very hard to believe.

No, the $30 is generally limited to the use for non-smartphones (or those phones that do not use the following operating systems, Android, iOS, BlackBerry, or Windows).

This phone requires the $45 Unlimited Plan (or its multiples, i.e., 90-, 180-, or 365-day) or the $60 International Unlimited Plan.

The phone is only capable of 3G no matter where you buy it.

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 yes and yes but straightalk only has a 3G network so sorry! it is a great phone but right now only works on 3G. i have no problems with coverage...same as Verizon.
if you really want 4G go with T-mobile but i dont like their service

Marilyn, as far as I know, currently, no MVNO has access to Verizon's 4G LTE Network. Verizon only allows their own customers to use it. I keep hearing that may change but so far, I don't know of any MVNO using Verizon that has access to 4G LTE (...with the only exception that I can think of is a hotspot offered through Millenicom that has access to Verizon 4G LTE but it is a personal hotspot and not a phone).

Straight Talk has a few 4G LTE phones available for sale but they run on Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T but the selection right now is very limited. The vast majority of Android phones that Straight Talk is selling are 3G.

If you end up checking for it in one of the stores check the box. On the actual box look for CDMA-V. That V indicates a phone that works on Verizon towers.

I checked to see if this phone works in a zip code I used to live in that was an area that could only use the Verizon Galaxy SIII and it said it would work there. So I am pretty sure this is the Verizon version.

Also, if you go to the Straightalk website, the Verizon Galaxy Siii is white. The phone on the other network is pebble blue.

To make sure, either check in the stores with UPC #61696006055 or call a store with that number and have them look for CDMA-V on that phone.
