Kudos

Kudos to Metro PCS in terms of customer service. I recently (40 days ago) purchased a Kyocera Strobe. Love the phone, but for the past 3 weeks it would intermitently allow the callers to hear me, yet I could not hear them. The frequency of this occurance has increased each day. Because I use my Metro PCS phone for business this is obviously a HUGE problem for me.

I first called Kyocera tech support, assuming the issue was with the phone. No known issues. They referred me back to the service provider. I went to the store where the phone was purchased and they were very nice, but had to send me to a corporate store.

When I went to the corporate store I was greeted by a very long line and only one service rep to handle the custom...

Pix Messaging

Picked up the 6265i almost as soon as it came out, and its awesome!

But, I can't send any pix to anyone, at first it let me send them only to e-mail, now I can't send them to anyone, regardless of carrier or e-mail address.

I called Metro Customer Service and got some woman I could barely understand that told me she "reset my system" and to "restart my phone". I tried, and nothing changed!! Mad

The message status get to about 40% and then I get an error message.

Any ideas? First real major issue I've had with Metro so far.

BTW, I'm in the South Florida/Broward County Area if that helps.

Lag in SMS

sometimes i would send a txt message to a metropcs customer(i have cingular), and it would be a serious delay in them getting the message, when i send to a tmobile, or cingular person(i dont know many people on verizon and sprint and they: my friends: dont txt, i might occasionally send a txt and they get the message in a couple of seconds) they get it in a couple of seconds, but when i txt a metropcs customer like some of my friends and my sister they would get it hours late or even days, and i know that SMS is not a guarenteed swift way to send messages but what is causing that, i noticed a LOT of people in my area, Detroit, Michigan has metropcs,

is it possible that the network can be at capacity at certain times of the day, and can s...

Ringtones for Nokia 6265i

I can make ringtones for this phone, if you have it let me know and I can explain how to do it. It's really very easy. This is so you dont have to us a whole MP3 as your ringtone, saves on memory. All you need is a 64MB mini SD card or higher. I have an e-mail address dvinehottie@gmail.com contact me there. Very Happy

Thanks
Oh I can make ringtones for other phones too just ask!

Strobe questions

Is it possible to download ringtones .midi files etc for the strobe? If so, what software/cables/hardware is needed? I am a newbie and need some hand holding here. How difficult/easy is the process?

Also, can ringtones be assigned to individual callers?

TIA for any assistance you can provide.

Which new phone should I get with Metro?

I currently have a LG vx3200. I've had the LG for about a year now and haven't had any problems whatsoever. I've dropped the phone on concrete several times and dunked in a pool once. The worst problems I've had with it are never getting it to work with the Data cable I've bought and now after a year the battery going bad. I've decided I need a newer phone, I'd like one that has a camera added in and CAN work with Data cables (it might just be me). I've read through some of the reviews listed here and none of the phones really got better than a 3.5 on their scale. Any suggestions? I need one that's durable and doesn't mind abuse, I work outside so it's gonna get some miles on its casing.

LNP Local Number Portability into and out-of MetroPCS

Hi,

I had a BellSouth # which I ported into Cingular Wireless. I'd really love to port this # into MetroPCS soon. Would that be possible? Also, would I be able to port this # to another carrier in the future? I heard something like if the # originally was from Bellsouth then I shouldn't have a problem to keep moving it from carrier to carrier - but I wanted to verify.

Thanks
