I was told by many friends that this phone was great, so I purchased it at Walmart.com, got it in one day! I have been using Straight Talk for over 3 years now, and found it excellent. But my old phone was just a talk and text, and although it suited my needs very well for that time, I felt it was time to upgrade. Always a Samsung lover, I decided on the Galaxy III this time so I could dowload data and email, picture messages, etc. I am very, very happy with this phone, and chose it over the iPhone, even though I have an iPad and like it very much. What I really don't like about the iPhone in comparison is the smaller screen, which is more difficult to see, and the fact you can't readily get another battery for it. The Samsung you can get a replacement battery, and the screen is much larger, yet no heavier than the iPhone. You can also add a micro card to it to expand the memory, which is great. The camera also has a flash, takes beautiful photos, and turns out it is easy to learn how to use it. I also found, comparing it to my sister's iPhone, that the ring tones offered on the Samsung are quite beautiful, while my sister's are quite ugly! I was surprised by this, and so was she. I highly recommend the Straight Talk plans, too. The service has always been reliable, even when we travel, and you can't beat the price, that is for sure.
