    Massively disappointing. Was really looking forward to the Galaxy S3 on Straight Talk. Only Verizon coverage in my area. Now I have to wait for the next good Straight Talk phone running on a real network.

    It seems like a poor marketing strategy for ST – Sprint prepaid nonroaming coverage is very spotty.

    @ Mike. So would you prefer less prepaid LTE options?

    Virgin is known to get lower priority the Sprint customers on their towers. I wonder if that’s extends to ST as well? LTE?

    @Daniel…I haven’t been many places in which Verizon was better or even equal to Sprint. Only in FL, Verizon has the edge. In NC where I live, Verizon is a joke. Can u hear me now…doubt it if it’s Verizon. Traveling to VA and down to FL, Verizon again, is a joke. Sprint works like a charm and very few drop out areas. Verizon…constantly drops out along the I-95 corridor…just saying…

    @jason, try coming to the Midwest and using any other network than Verizon. None of the others are worth crap here. Barely coverage at all.
