MetroPCS today launched a new bring-your-own-device offering in several cities, with plans to expand the service later. MetroPCS is now allowing people with GSM-based Android smartphones and select versions of the Apple iPhone to bring their unlocked device into MetroPCS stores and sign up for MetroPCS service. Though the customers will be billed by MetroPCS, their device will actually run on T-Mobile's GSM-based network and not MetroPCS's CDMA-based network. The offering is first available in Boston, Dallas, Hartford, and Las Vegas. MetroPCS didn't say when the program might be expanded. T-Mobile USA acquired MetroPCS earlier this year and said it planned to transition new and existing MetroPCS customers from Metro's CDMA network to its own GSM network.
