Samsung A645

This phone appears on the Metro PCS site. It does not appear here for review. What's up with this phone? Does anyone have the scoop?

Kyocera Strobe soon

Our store already got the display phone of the STROBE, I had read before that we were going to get it but not until U50 was running.

Anyone knows the release date for this phone?

LG VX3200, Is it possible to use a data cable?

I have Metro PCS in Tampa for almost a year now with a little LG basic flip phone. My boyfriend has a Nextel i870 and I've hooked it onto the computer several times and loaded ringers and images with no problem. Does Metro block this somehow? Or do I have bad cables? I've tried 3 different cords, 2 from Ebay and one from LG. I couldn't find this question asked anywhere else on these forums but of all the sites I've looked at today this one looked the most knowledgeable about Metro's workings. I'm not a super geek with the computer or even data cables, just a tattoo artist trying to get some personalized logos on her phone. If anyone can help tell me what I'm doing wrong I'd be very grateful. Thanks.

Samsung sch-a850 is not...

I work at Metropcs store and just recently sold about 12 samsung a850 including one for my gf. out of those twelve, nine of them came back telling me that they can not hear anything when they make call or it sounds like the voice extremely far away. Plus I heard that they are being recalled in Atlanta for the same reason... I would not pay a penny for this junk

This is my first time dealing with Asurion Insurance.

Metro Pcs needs to seriously reconsider the insurance provider "Asurion". I has a customer in my store for about an hour because her phone was broken and she was trying to make an insurance claim. They put her through so many hoops, to a point where I actually felt bad for her.

A few questions about MetroPCS's RAZR V3c - please help!

Hello! I have a few q's about the new beautiful addition to MetroPCS's lineup. Hopefully someone from MetroPCS or a new owner of this phone can answer.

1. Most critical question - can the phone be charged (with car charger OR house charger) while being used?
[This may seem like a silly question but I've been SUFFERING with my Kyocera Slider since day 1...for 2.5 years - the battery is DRAINED when talking on the phone even when it's plugged to the A/C charger.]

2. Can I upload some custom-made MP3's from my PC to the phone (via bluetooth/USB) and then assign different MP3's as ringtones for different people? So when Dad calls, it'll say in his voice "hello son", when friend calls it'll say "WASSUPPPP" etc? Possible? My worry is that ...
