    January 13, 2014 date purchased. Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S3 White, is the best Cellphone to get. Excellent signal for at&t and Verizon and T-mobile too! It has all the features you want. I love that I can just talk this phone instead of typing in the keypad to send a text messages. GPS is excellent service never lose signal with this phone. $45 Unlimited Nationwide Talk, Text, Data and 411 And if I want International Calling just buy the $60 card then I can enjoy talking to my family in Philippines everyday. I like this phone much better than iPhone 5S it's about the same features. My old phone was also No Contract paying $50.00 a month Unlimited Talk & Text plus Web but I can only check email, can't open other websites not even Facebook. I'm very happy & content that I choose this product it has everything I need. I've done all my research before I purchased this phone. Great deal, great Cellphone to have!!! Pictures are beautiful!

    I wanted to upgrade my 3 year old Straight talk LG that also ran off Verizon towers it was small, touch wasn't responsive anymore. Bought the S3 Everyone loves their Verizon and AT&T S3's so I spent the 279.00 at Walmart, I hate this phone. It is slow no apps downloaded yet constantly has internet problems. Disabled the bloatware it still is slow. Got fed up and bought a AT&T note 2 and a sim. That is exactly how the S3 should be. I don't watch videos, download anything. So beware. My $40.00 LG was better, Faster with 7 apps running. Putting the S3 with a life proof case on craigslist. I actually hate this phone. It's not worth the price! I have 3 straight talk accounts. One 5c works great, a Verizon gzone 3g they both blow this phone away. Byop is the best option with Straight talk. My first cheap phone with them was awesome but the S3 is a horrible phone. The note shouldn't be faster AT&T is behind Verizon here so this phone is just sad!

    We've lived with the S3 for a few months now and haven't noticed too many scratches on the back, which is impressive considering we haven't been using a case. Indeed, as predicted Samsung's choice of finishes – glossy white and faux brushed metallic blue wear what scratches they do have reasonably well. A new glossy black version is soon to become available too, though, so we'll have to wait and see how that one holds up.

    My husband and I ordered these phones, they were delivered within a couple days site to store.We are enjoying them so far.They have many of the features of an iPhone such as front camera,suri type voice app, 16gs of internal mem & can hold up tp 64g sd card.Web surfing is very fast & you can watch videos on YouTube without choppyness.It also helps if you have a wifi connection.The rear camera quality is nice quality 8mp, flash.The screen is large & the images appear very sharp & clear.The phone has many other features that will take us awhile to figure out :) We also purchased phone cases as Walmart that have an external battery & screen protector. The phone is slippery & large in the hand although slim so a case is definately needed.I subtracted a star because the call quality is less than our old Straight Talk smart phones.I think these run on the At&t network instead of Verizon. Also I think the price is a bit high considering they have already come out with the Galaxy S5. A

    So far very few complaints. This is my first smartphone, so I'm still easily impressed, kind of like a caveman seeing fire for the first time. But I've talked to people who have had other smartphones, and they love the S3. I haven't really downloaded any apps to speak of yet, but the Netflix app works great on this phone. I work far from the city, and I still have a good signal, even better than with my previous Straight Talk "dumb" phone. The camera takes great pics, and I love the swipe to screenshot feature; very slick. I know this phone is capable of so much more than I'm doing with it, but I'll learn it eventually. Oh, and great battery life, as long as you're not running a bunch of apps all the time. Only red flag that's come up so far is that a little over a week after I had it, it freaked out a couple of times and froze up, so I had to take the battery out and restart it. I don't know if it was just a fluke or what, but if it doesn't happen again I'll have no complaints.

    Straight Talk, Samsung Galaxy S3. This should be a 4G LTE phone but don't see any mention of it for verizon straight talk service. I can't see paying this much for an outdated 3G plan. If it is 4G capable I'll go buy it today. Hope somebody knows.

    • A. under the features section of this webpage it has a grey box like photo. The second bullet in the grey box says 4G LTE. Straight talk 4G lte phones use the AT&T network.

    • A. It is a 4g lte phone lol. According to straight talk you get 2.5G at high speed then they slow you down. I've jad my phone about two weeks and have't touched that. But I primarily use mine for texting my boss and emplyees, several e-mail a day a a little web browsing.

    • A. This particular phone is the C968C which uses Verizon but, you're correct, it is limited to 3G. Straight Talk sells two versions of the SIII through Walmart. Simply put it's as follows: 1. One version is this particular phone with the model number of S968C. Which again, runs on the Verizon native network at only 3G data speeds. The current price online at Walmart as of today is $399. 2. The other version is the S960L or designated on the box as "LTE-S." This phone is Sprint powered and is true 4G LTE. The current price online at Walmart as of today is $299. So, one must make the choice of a Straight Talk SIII which is a true 4G LTE phone that is on the Sprint native network which we all know has a small coverage footprint compared to other major carriers. OR A Straight Talk SIII that uses the Verizon network but does not have LTE and is limited to 3G but with a very extensive 3G nationwide network. The Sprint version or model number S960L can be viewed here (copy-and-paste): http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S-III-Pre-Paid-Smartphone/23573710 ...as you can see in the description its features, it will state "LTE Dual-Band 4/17"
