    Wouldn't mind having an S3, but since my profession requires travelling all over the United States, this particular version of it (assuming it will be in fact running on Sprint's towers) would be even more frustrating for me than my current device (which operates on Verizon's towers). I'd just assume buy the AT&T or T-Mobile versions and get a SIM to use on ST since I get far better coverage on gsm networks

    My dad lives in Iowa and is a truck driver, mostly 3-4 state runs in that part of the midwest but occasionally other places. He has straight talk using verizons towers we checked into getting him AT&T sim and going gsm, would be much easier to find good phone. But the coverage would suck voice calls would not even always be there and forget any data.

    I'm really considering jumping from virgin mobile to straight talk and getting the gs3. I'm concerned about straight talks nasty reputation for data throttling. On virgin mobile I get 2.5 gig of data until my speeds are throttled down to 256k. Most of the complaints I've seen for straight talk throttling are for their at&t sim cards. Has any one experienced throttling on straight talk with any of their phones running on sprint's cdma network?

    My understanding is that the new GS3 coming to straight talk runs over sprints CDMA/LTE networks.
