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
