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.
