Questions & Answers for Straight Talk Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S3 Prepaid Cell Phone, White

Question

roaming?

So you were saying the phone will only work in the area you activated it in. If that's so why does the st card say "Unlimited minutes and texts nationwide" and further down "No long distance or roaming charges"?

(clarification to my previous post: My understanding is that Verizon Wireless Prepaid customers can have some roaming if paying an extra fee in advance. Straight Talk customers on Verizon have NO option at all to roam. Therefore, if you were to take a Verizon Wireless Prepaid phone to Alaska that operates on a Verizon Prepaid plan, you could pay extra to roam on some CDMA networks in Alaska. A Straight Talk phone using Verizon <this phone> will not work at all in Alaska. My understanding only.)

maddog10, I hope it wasn't me who gave you that impression.

The phone will work ANYWHERE in the U.S. where there is Verizon Wireless "native" coverage. It does not matter where you activate the phone, where you purchase the phone, nor where you live.

The phone will use Verizon for the life of the phone while it is on Straight Talk service no matter where you travel in the country (where there is Verizon coverage ...no Alaska service as there is no "native" Verizon coverage in AK).

"Native" is defined as coverage only where Verizon owns the towers so in other words, there is NO roaming on other networks. The phone will have the exact same coverage as a Verizon Wireless Prepaid phone as Verizon's own prepaid customers will not have roaming privileges either; only their contracted customers have roaming privileges.

So yes, there are "no roaming charges" because the phone will NOT roam ...therefore, no roaming charges.

Yes, you will have free unlimited long distance and texting to any state in the U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii. It's just that when you are in Alaska, there will not be coverage. Hawaii has good Verizon coverage, however.

I have no clue why they say that, I've had a straight talk phone for years...those they've told me won't work in my area.. I buy what I like and pay the same amount every month. I've never had additional charges and my phones have been to Florida, Oklahoma and Maryland .

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.

Same size but the the ports can be in different locations since these phones by model # are made specifically for each service provider.

Screen protector no worries. The case...I would wait till you get your phone and see the case to decide.

Yes, according to the specifications on the Samsung global website, they are both essentially the same size.

No it does not. I know the blue one used to be on a different network that offered 4G and needed a sim card so you may have purchased that phone instead. I transferred everything by backing up my contact list and pictures to my microSD card, which I then moved to this phone.

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.

I'm neither a Walmart nor Straight Talk employee but I do keep fairly close tabs on what is available and I haven't seen the Pebble Blue S968C available for several weeks now.

My hunch is that Walmart/Straight Talk is fazing out the SIII as it is now becoming outdated and they are probably in the process of liquidating their stock. They've been selling it for almost a year now (the Sprint version) and the Verizon version for almost 6-months.

If a phone is temporarily out of stock, Walmart will usually keep the page up for viewing with a notation that the phone is "out of stock" but they have completely removed the page for the S968C SIII in the Pebble Blue color. That is what makes me believe that it may not be offered again.

But we can cross our fingers that I'm wrong.

go google "straight talk s3 white" and look for the samsung website. It stated that it has the front and rear facing camera. it's a 16gb model with the micro sd expansion slot and as far as RAM goes it doesn't seem to say if it has dedicated RAM or not so it's probably does not.
