Love, love, love this phone. I finally decided to get a smart phone and after much research I chose the Samsung Galaxy SIII through Straight Talk. Compared to getting it through Verizon, AT&T or Sprint I save well over $1000.00 over the next 2 years. Plus the phone is on Rollback at Walmart.com and I'm a Walmart associate. So, there's extra savings. One thing I'd like to mention, when I checked to see if the phone would work in my area, I was told no on WalMart.com. When I put in my zip code on the Straight Talk website I was told yes, that it would work. So, I contacted Straight Talk directly and asked if they could clear up the confusion. And was told that it would indeed work. So I bought it and it works great! So if you were thinking of getting this phone and were told it wouldn't work in your area on WalMart.com, check with Straight Talk before you give up. This is my first smart phone and it is very easy to learn how to use. I would highly recommend this phone to anyone. Love it!

I am quite sure the phone would have been great, if it was with a carrier that worked in my area. After quite a lengthy wait for a straight talk CSR to change my plan over to this phone on a Friday evening (because I wasn't able to complete online) I discovered on Saturday morning that I have NO phone service at all. After another LENGTHY wait for straight talk customer service rep and a rather lengthy conversation, it was determined the phone was with a carrier that didn't service "my" area and it would never work. O.K., now ANOTHER wait to get the old phone re-activated and then return this one to wal mart. I would never have ordered the phone but the wal mart site said it worked in my zip code. I recommend if upgrading your phone with straight talk, purchase the phone at your local wal mart, confirming the fact it will work with your carrier, which I have since done without any problem (was able to do it online in a matter of a few minutes).

Phone on SPRINT network DON'T purchase!

Just purchased this phone to operate on the smart talk system, it operates on the Sprint Network, outside the perimeter in Atlanta area and this phone cannot stay on service for more than 15 seconds before call is dropped! Attemped to use different apps to correct service issues, none of them work with Samsung Galaxy III. The phone itself is a work of art, high praises to Samsung! But......the service running on SPRINT towers is rediculous! Stay away from any phones running on the sprint network, slow, dropped calls, unable to connect most places. Also if purchasing this phone through straight talk, mine did NOT come with shipping instructions. Just a phone in a box, make sure you get your instructions, as you will need them to be able to return the phone. I love the straight talk service on VERIZON TOWERS, and have been with this service for many years. Heartbreaking that the only smart phone to choose from on VERIZON towers that has the most current up to date smart phones functions is the iphone. Phone is being returned, and looks like I am going to be a Verizon customer before the day is over :(

thus far very pleased with this phone. many people were suggesting I get an iphone but I prefer android phones so I researched and so that this phone was the android version of the iphone 5. so far has much better battery life even with using facebook, I use my calendar constantly and notifications constantly and check emails all the time. this phone is perfect. I had a Samsung Galaxy precedent M828c which is also a great phone, just doesn't have the battery life of this one. this one handles the calendar and notification usage I require as well. you can play games on this phone, I just haven't done that yet.

Straight Talk cell service is very spotty at best. But the Samsung Galaxy S III is 5 star. Display area is large and the screen is big enough to read without reading glasses. Slide down menu at the top is very simple to use, easy to turn on and off icons such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Sound, Power Saving, Airplane Mode, etc. All notifications regarding voice mail and text messages are in this area too. So you get the whole scoop all at once when you turn it on. It's very easy to move an app to the main menu screens by just going to the screen you want them on, then to apps., then press/hold on the app and it goes to the screen you want it on. Icons are clear, big, and easy to read. There are also Widgets like Alarm Clock, Booksmarks, Calendar, Dual clock for other time zones. There is a plastic oval on the lower front of the phone that, when pressed and held, shows the apps in use so you can tap on the trash can and turn them all off to save battery power. I synched this phone with my Kindle Paper White and can pick up on the phone right where I left off on the Kindle. This is my first smart phone and while it takes some time to get it set up and learn to use it, it took a lot less time than I anticipated. I would definitely purchase this phone again.

  • A. I agree with LindyBugs that if you have a Straight Talk phone which uses the Verizon network that you will generally have great coverage traveling throughout the U.S. However, to clarify a couple of things. This particular Straight talk phone uses the Sprint native network. The network a Straight Talk phone uses depends on the phone and not necessarily the location when using the phone. Straight Talk phones primarily use AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint with some limited T-mobile GSM SIMS. If you have a Straight Talk phone that uses Verizon, the phone will use Verizon no matter your location in the U.S. If your ST phone uses AT&T, the phone will use AT&T service no matter your location in the country. And, if your phone uses Sprint, as this one does, the phone will use Sprint towers no matter where you travel or your location in the U.S. Also, the Family Plan that Walmart is offering is not a Straight Talk plan. It is called "Walmart Family Mobile" and will operate exclusively on the T-mobile network and generally use T-mobile branded phones. It will use Walmart Family Mobile plans and not Straight Talk plans. Straight Talk does not have "family plans" per se.

  • A. The Straight Talk network uses other phone towers, whatever ones you are near. I have found from others it mainly uses the Verizon towers on the regular Strait Talk network. However, they are now offering a Family Plan in my area (DFW) that you can choose that uses T-Mobile towers. I chose to stick to the regular original Straight Talk as I have never had trouble with reception even while traveling.

  • A. Sprint's native network. No roaming. However, this phone will have access to true 4G LTE. Make sure you have good Sprint data coverage in the areas you plan to use the phone for as you probably know, Sprint's coverage is not as extensive as AT&T and Verizon and has spotty coverage in rural areas. Sprint's native coverage map (copy-and-paste): http://coverage.sprint.com/mycoverage.jsp?id=BO543STC You can hone in on your address with this map. However, the map does not show all the new areas where Sprint has 4G LTE as they are continually updating the LTE service areas. They claim that they will have 4G LTE in place in all their 3G areas by the end of 2014 ...that may be a bit optimistic.
