I have a galaxy s3 with sprint and I want to switch it to straight talk but straight talk keep telling me it's not compatible.
 
If one can trust Wikipedia:
Straight Talk is another operator, through a partnership between TracFone and Walmart, offering several different rate plans; a $30 limited plan, $45 30-day unlimited plan and a $60 unlimited international calling plan. Discounts are available for purchasing multiple months of the unlimited plan. Straight Talk is a Mobile Virtual Network operator (MVNO) offering both CDMA and GSM support. The CDMA network uses Verizon's or Sprint's CDMA 1xRTT wireless networks and the GSM side makes use of either T-Mobile's or AT&T's GSM networks.
Your chances are slim, to say the least.

If the phone is unlocked, yes you can. You will need to buy a Straight Talk BYOP (Bring Your Own Phone) Kit. If the Galaxy is a GSM phone you will use the sim cards in the kit and you can switch in that way to Straight Talk but you will most likely not be on Verizon towers, but rather AT&T or T-Mobile depending on the region in which you live. Hope this helps.
