Eagleclaw, I'm not quite sure if I'm understanding what you are asking or not but I'll answer two ways:

No, it will not "work with Verizon." In other words, you can't purchase this phone and activate it with Verizon and use a Verizon plan.

The phone is required to be used with Straight Talk on a Straight Talk plan. However, the phone featured on this page uses the Verizon native voice and 3G network when being used with Straight Talk (activated on and using a Straight Talk Unlimited Plan).

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.

5.38" x 2.78" x 0.34" or 136.6mm x 70.6mm x 8.6mm

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.

The Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S3 Prepaid Cell Phone (White) is only compatible only with Straight Talk $45/30-Day Unlimited or $60/30-Day Unlimited International service plans. It will work with the $30 pre month service plan.

No! You need the unlimited plan for $45 a month.

answer 3
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.

answer 3
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My hunch is that Walmart/Straight Talk is fazing out the SIII as it is now becoming outdated and they are probably in the process of liquidating their stock.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.

Internal memory is 16GB, 2GB RAM

MMS Text messages uses older technology that relies on SIM cards on older phones. For this phone, you'll need to download text messaging APP from Google Store.

answer 2
You would need to call straight talk about that they may have throttled you. (low chance) I know that I had 3 phones before from StraightTalk and none of them could receive MMS (assuming you mean picture messaging) It always had an issue which is why I always send any picture message via email rather from phone to phone.
