  1. If I buy a Galaxy 3 phone that is unlocked will it work with Straight talk /Verizon towers ?
    I will make sure it was not a Sprint Phone.

    • Susan, unlocked phones won’t work with Verizon towers due to network differences – GSM vs. CDMA. If you want Samsung Galaxy S3 for Straight Talk service running on Verizon towers I would suggest purchasing a Verizon version of the phone and activate it by providing ESN# to the carrier. Prior purchase make sure that ESN# is clean and Straight Talk will activate it. Here is a link where you can check it. Also here is a link to deals on Verizon Galaxy S3 for your convenience. Hope you find this helpful.
