For $300 this is a great phone!! It's is not only beautiful, it is amazing!! Maybe I was just sheltered "with a not so smart" smartphone before but I seriously think this phone is very attractive looking and has all the bells and whistles you expect with today's smartphones!! The only thing that is a little annoying is getting use to the touch pad for texting. I do like the separate keypad on my last phone but I'll get use to this soon enough. And this phone doesn't have a navigation icon...you just use google maps which I'm not use to either and need to figure out how to work it properly. Other than that it is very attractive, very responsive and has all the great features you want in a smartphone. It was very easy to transfer my contacts, music and pictures with the miniSD card from my other phone also. I would definately recommend this phone to others. So far I haven't had a problem with the Sprint service in my area. I have in the past and was hoping for a verizon phone but it's on Sprints network.

I have noticed that all of the negative reviews for this phone seem to be because of Sprint being the carrier and this is certainly understandable if you have poor Sprint coverage in your area or where you travel. Fortunately I have good Sprint voice and 4G LTE data coverage both where I live and work and I do very little traveling and so being outside of the coverage area is not a problem for me. And the phone is simply amazing! It has more features and capabilities than I could possibly name here. It has everything I need in a smartphone and is very fast with LTE. And the battery will easily last 36 to 48 hours between charges with normal use. Overall, I would recommend this phone to anyone who has good Sprint coverage in their area and the places they travel. I definitely recommend going to Sprint.com and researching if you have their 4G LTE coverage in your area and the places you may be traveling before you buy! This is certainly true with any phone and carrier. If you have the coverage, this is a simply amazing and fantastic phone!!!

Its an excellent phone and theres hardly any wait time while performing anything on the phone. The screen is quite large. Battery isn't all that good. This phone operates on Sprint networks. Where I live, you'd be lucky to have data. If you know your area isn't good for Sprint service, don't let the Sprint service map fool you either, you should NOT get this phone if your area or the places you will be with this phone has horrible Sprint service. You would be better off with an alternative Android that runs under Unlocked GSM. If you live in the city or a very urban area, this phone is a must have. All in all, if you absolutely want a SGS3 with straight talk but no Sprint coverage, you must also look up other methods because this phone does not have a SIM/Micro-Sim card slot, therefore you cannot change your carriers at all. I personally refunded this and moved on.

I LOVE this phone! It's a great phone. It does everything I want and gives me access to even more apps should I feel the need. It's user friendly and has a generous screen without being to big. Thankfully I was able to get it at the black friday price online without having to brave the horrible black friday crowds. FTW!!!!! The only down side is that I don't have a lot of connectivity here in Lexington TN because it's run off of Verizon towers. I'm investing in a cell phone signal booster for the house though which should remedy some of that. Eventually I may get one for the car... or maybe magically I'll find a way to petition Straight Talk and Verizon to build more towers! I really like Straight Talk's service and, even though it was way more than I really wanted to spend on a phone, the $299 was worth it. That's my opinion so far folks. I hope it helps. P.S. go ahead and pick yourself up some accessories like a 16gb sd micro card, a protective case and a car charger. You'll want those things to keep it all nice and portably safe. P.S.S. - do I need to add an anti virus app to this thing? #query

I have no issues with this phone. Had a S2 with straight talk and just recently purchased this phone and it was very easy to activate. It's faster going between pages, loading app.s and the picture , screen quality is much crisper and vibrant compared to my old s2. One big plus for me was being able to have a option to change the font size to large , which was a option already on the S3. Battery life seems much better than the S2. Don't let the pic. on here fool you , the phone that you get is much nicer than pic .. looks. I was afraid that it would look cheap, cause pic kind of makes it look cheap. Walmart's picture of this phone does not do it justice.... It actually looks just like the picture they have of the same phone (white Phone) but just in black, same quality in looks... For some reason white phone pic on here makes it look better or a better phone..... Trust me the black phone is a very good quality phone. So happy to have the option of having this really nice phone without getting stuck in a expensive contract plan.... Figured it up, saves over $1000+ even with having to pay $300.00 on the phone....

  • A. This specific product uses Sprint coverage. The Samsung S III has two model numbers on the Walmart site: S960L and S968C. Any phone option you choose that has a model number containing '960' will be a Sprint phone, while the same is true of '968' for Verizon.

  • A. I agree with decopatty that the map on the box will also be a clue. A red map on the right bottom corner opposite the "CDMA-V" that is in rectangle on the left bottom corner will indicate that it is the Verizon version. And a blue map opposite the "LTE-S" will indicate (in the case of the SIII) the Sprint version. HOWEVER, when ordering here online at Walmart, you obviously can't see the box nor does Walmart show any images of the box so please refer to my explanation in the first post at the bottom of this thread when ordering online.

  • A. Penny, when ordering, make note of the model number. The SIII on THIS page has the model number of S960L and will use the Sprint native network. It is a true 4G LTE phone and will have very fast data/internet speeds when in a Sprint LTE coverage area. The SIII that uses Verizon will have the model number of S968C and will be limited to 3G data/internet speeds. If you are ordering from Walmart.com, look towards the bottom of the page under the title "Specifications" and you will see a "Model No.:" listed. If the model number has "960" embedded anywhere within the model number sequence, it will be the Sprint version. If the model number has the numbers "968" embedded anywhere within the sequence, it will be the Verizon version. Take a look at the bottom of this page and do you see the "S960L" listed the "Model No." notation? It has "960" so it will be the Sprint version. If you go to this page where the Verizon version is sold, you will see "STSAS968CWTPWP" listed for the "Model No." (copy-and-paste): http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-Prepaid-Cell-Phone-White/29010048 Do you see the "968" embedded in the sequence following "Model No."? (If you are in a Walmart store that happens to have both phones in stock on the shelves, in the left bottom corner within a small rectangle, you will see a code which will be either CDMA-V for the Verizon version or LTE-S for the Sprint version)

  • A. Again, the SIII featured on THIS page uses the SPRINT native network. If you want the Verizon version of this phone, DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS PAGE!! Instead, go to this page (copy-and-paste): http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-Prepaid-Cell-Phone-White/29010048 The Verizon version is currently only offered in White. The Sprint version is currently offered in both White and Pebble Blue. Check the model number carefully: The Verizon versions will have "968" embedded somewhere in the model number. The Verizon versions will be limited to 3G data speeds. The Sprint versions will have "960" embedded somewhere in the model number. The Sprint versions will be true 4G LTE phones. Again, if you want the SIII on Straight Talk to use VERIZON, do not order from this page.

I would only consider buying this phone if it runs on verizon towers I have read down thru these questions and comments and see posts that say it runs on verizon sprint and tmobile so which is it?
by troy 12/6/2013

  • A. It varies. I got this phone for Black Friday online. Straight Talk staff told me it would run on Verizon (I called before I got the phone, and then when I got it I call again and gave them the ESN to verify it). I transferred my number and minutes over to it and had instant regret. Poor signal, internet was slower than dial up speeds! A tech guy at my work looked at the build number in the menu of the phone and was able to somehow find online that it was working off sprint based on that build number. A good friend of mine got the same phone, same price, at black friday but got it in a store about an hour from our home. His is running off Verizon and he has no trouble out of it. I would suggest buying it in-store nearby. Chances are, your walmart won't sell it if it doesn't work in your area. I wont be ordering anymore phones off walmart.com and i definitely don't trust the advice/information from the employees at Straight Talk. I got my money back for the SIII and switched back to my old phone.

  • A. Again, for those reading this question, be careful when ordering a Straight Talk SIII as there are TWO versions. This one is on SPRINT and is a true 4G LTE phone. This phone's model number is S960L or will have the code on its box LTE-S. The one that runs on Verizon has the model number of S968C ...is CDMA and runs on Verizon but will be limited to 3G speeds. If you are order the phone featured on this page, it will be Sprint powered. If you can't determine for sure what the model number may be, the Verizon version will make no reference to being LTE where the Sprint version will.

  • A. troy, this particular phone is the S960L and will be on the Sprint network. It is true 4G LTE. Straight Talk has another version of the S III that does run on Verizon but is limited to 3G only. Currently, it is priced $100 more than this phone at $399 and the model number is S968C. You can find the Verizon version (S968C) here (copy-and-paste): for the white model: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-Prepaid-Cell-Phone-White/29010048 for the pebble blue model: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-Prepaid-Cell-Phone-Blue/29010041 Straight Talk does not have an S III on T-Mobile. However, the new Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S4 does use T-Mobile.
