Metro PCS, a flat rate carrier that has built its business on customers who stayed within the confines of one local network, is finally setting its subscribers loose. The carrier today introduced TravelTalk, an add-on to its plans which allows subscribers to roam in any US metro area. If the subscriber travels to another Metro PCS city, there is no additional charge for the calls, otherwise calls cost between 49 and 79 cents per minute. A message displayed on the phone's screen will alert users to the cost of calls when they are roaming. Metro PCS also announced it has just launched service in Detroit, the carrier's 8th metro area.

Great move

I think this is a step in the right direction for Metro. All those fence straddlers who'd love to use Metro in their area but wouldn't otherwise have coverage while out of area will now have more incentive. Still though, 49 to 79 cents per minute isn't a bargain.

I still don't understand what sets this carrier apart from cricket. Anyone know the lowdown?
I don't EVEN know.... Just different sinage if you ask me.
Cricket, actually lease's out other carriers lines. Where as Metro PCS builds out there own spectrum. Metro is now in agreement with Verizon to allow Metro customers to roam on there various networks through out the U.S.

Metro will also be launchin...
