Carl, yes, you do have to purchase a plan and are required to pay at least 30-days in advance.

This phone requires one of the Unlimited Plans. The $45 plan (or blocks of 90-, 180-, or 365-day bundles sold at a discount) or the $60 International Unlimited Plan.

If you do not wish to go through the hassle of purchasing service each month, you have these options too:

1. Buying service in blocks (90-, 180-, or 365-day blocks). The larger the block the more you save. If you purchase the 365-day option, you will essentially be getting service for $41.25 per month.

2. You can put as much service in "reserve" as you wish. This can extend your "service end date" to as far out as you wish to go.

3. You also have the option of auto-refill where Straight Talk will automatically purchase each month service using your credit or debit card. Using this option, you don't have to remember to purchase service.

If you order the Samsung Galaxy S3 featured on THIS page, it will be the one that uses Verizon.

Make sure when you order that you see the number "968" somewhere in the model number sequence as that is the Verizon version. The Sprint version will have the numbers "960" in its model number sequence.

Two things to keep in mind about this Straight Talk phone using the Verizon network:

1. This Samsung Galaxy SIII with the model number SCH S968C will be limited 3G data speeds. There will be no access to Verizon's 4G LTE network. (The Sprint version, the S960L, will be a true 4G LTE phone and will have very fast internet/data speeds when operated in a Sprint LTE coverage area.)

2. Even though this phone uses the Verizon network, it will be NATIVE coverage only ...in other words, there will be no roaming. It will use Verizon owned towers only.

Straight Talk built in app.

Does this phone come with the Straight Talk app for checking remaining airtime and adding pin to refill airtime? I liked the convenience of that on my other Straight Talk phone.

Hi Maxi,

You will need to go over to the Google Play store and download an APP called "My Tracfone" ....there, it will give you the remaining minutes as well as text and data.

Be careful buying used ST Galaxy phones. Seems ST doesn't authorize a second hand phone without original proof of purchase. Get the MEID number and go to ST's registration page. If the phone can be registered to your account your good to go. If not, don't buy.. AGAIN.. DON'T BUY. ST will say that the phone hasn't been properly scanner when purchased.. That is a joke. I'm scanning my original receipt to pass on if I ever sell my S3.

Tom, I don't see why not. As long as the phone you are transferring from has active service and the Galaxy SIII is compatible with Straight Talk service, it would seem to me that you should be able to do that.

If you have ordered the phone on this page, then you definitely can transfer the phone number from your old phone to this one and also remain on the same plan (not lose any time on your current plan) if you now have one of the Unlimited Plans with Straight Talk.

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.
