    Powerful with a few limitations

    This is a really powerful phone and I am sure everyone has talked about all the great things it can do. Let me just go over the limitations first since that is a shorter list and maybe more helpful to a would-be smartphone buyer. 1. Cannot run anything that requires FLASH. So you won't be able to watch Amazon Prime videos for instance, which require flash. This by far is the biggest gripe I think most Android users have. Netflix, and YouTube will work just fine. 2. I personally wish that it had a better camera. 8mp is ok but all the newer cameras do much better than this. Sometimes I think the camera can be sluggish. 3. Battery life is generally good unless you have wifi or mobile data on then it just sucks it down quickly. Perhaps this is common among most cell phones though. Why should you get this phone over another? Larger easily readable screen, Multi-window if you are into that, loads of customizations, and this thing is really surprisingly durable. I have dropped it more times than I care to admit and it hasn't cracked or become damaged.

    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!

    Our first attempt at ordering these phones was not successful. We tried to order two bundles that contained a phone, a case and a $50 gift card. We paid for rush shipping, the gift cards made it on time. Nothing else did. In fact the balance of our order was stuck in some sort of processing limbo. After a few customer service calls, the original order was cancelled and a new one was entered. This order shipped on time. Here is my experience activating and impressions of the Galaxy S3 after one week of use: 1-Call Straight Talk to have your phone activated if your porting over a existing phone number, it's much easier then doing it online. The activation process only took around a half hour, very fast!! 2- Make sure to research and make sure that the phone you are purchasing uses Verizon towers, other posts on here help with that. With that being said, I love this phone, and Straight Talk! Same quality as Verizon service, half the price! As long as your not a data hog, 2g is plenty per month.

    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.

    • No this only runs on 4G service on Verizon service....... however you will save hundreds of dollars a year over Verizon service.... if you do the math.

    • 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.

    • Sorry no 4G allowed on Verizon prepaid phones. It does have a SIM card slot that is open. Maybe in the future it will have 4G, or maybe you can get the straight talk sim from AT&T and use that? Duno.

    • 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"
