I don't think an unlocked SIII would be a problem, as long as, when you call Straight Talk, you tell them it's a bring-your-own-device account.
I wish I had done that.
As far as TracFone releasing updates, as I said, they told me there won't be any.
Finally, please don't take my word regarding the SIII, as I don't have one, but others on this or other forums do, and on Straight Talk.
Hope this helps.
