Problem with MetroPCS Coolpad Quattro 4G voicemail notification

My MetroPCS Coolpad 4G Quattro doesn't show that I have new voicemail messages if those messages come in while the phone is turned off. I turn the phone on, and the voicemail indicator symbol doesn't appear, but if I check my voicemail, there are unheard messages. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

T-Mobile merger with MetroPCS

The one good thing I can think will result from this merger is Metro getting rid of that worthless, proprietary, uncompetitive, monopolistic, locked down CDMA technology. How that crap technology ever got started in the US is beyond me. I guess Qualcomm greased some palms to get their bulls**t going here. At least with GSM you won't have phones completely locked down to their network. The US getting set up on CDMA will have to go down as one of the biggest mistakes ever made in mobile phone history. Thanks goodness T-Mobile will convert Metro PCS to GSM and finally have a decent phone selection at decent prices.

Caller ID Not Showing

Anyone know why my caller ID might not be showing up when I call someone? I would actually prefer it to show the name I put on the account but instead it just says, "Cell Phone, MI". It's rather annoying. Any thoughts?

Regret (dealers - corp doesn't seem to care)

I bought from a dealer - HUGE mistake. Here's an email I sent to corp, the dealer and to Samsung just for kicks. I doubt anyone will care...It's only been a day though so if I do hear back I will update this.


Hi. I understand that online/corp stores are a separate entity from authorized dealers; however, I naively bought a phone on a day that the corp store was closed (5/9/10), but a dealer was open. Honestly, I didn't know which store was which & I wanted to switch from AT&T as quickly as I could. I had no clue that the costs of the exact same phones would vary so greatly between the corp web site and dealers until I went to pay my first bill early! I looked on the MetroPCS site and saw that the ph...

"MetroFLASH" READ READ!! coming soon.

Over the next few weeks, metroPCS will introduce an innovative process that enables CDMA devices from competitive networks to be re-flashed for use on it's wireless network. The process, branded “Metro Flash”, is powered by Houdini, a 3rd party software company. As you can imagine, Metro Flash will have an impact on metroPCS collective business, and has the potential to be an industry “game-changer.” let me know what you think
