MetroPCS Coverage in Phoenix, AZ

I noticed MetroPCS has "Extended Coverage" in Phoenix...I called their Customer Care 800 number to see which carrier's towers are used...and they said "Roaming". I am just curious if anyone FOR SURE knows whom they either has to be Sprint or Verizon due to CDMA... anyone with this info would be of great help.

Thanks! Smile

Texting on a MetroPCS smart phone.

Hey everyone,

I currently have a Samsung FreeForm and I was thinking about upgrading to one of Metro's Andriod handsets.

Currently, when I text, I can only type in 160 characters. I have noticed on other carriers that their smart phones appear to have unlimited characters when they text and was wondering if this is also the case for smart phones on MetroPCS.

Thank you

MetroPCS, Service Plans, FCC, and 4G Video

Ran across another article about Metro vs. FCC - s/la-ed-metropcs-20110201,0,6422631.story

The news article being from the LATimes, I am unsure of its robust accuracy. Notwithstanding it brought to my attention some details which I had not read in previous articles on Metro's and Verizon's case with FCC.

I assumed that the new 4G service was basically unlimited 4G web. But if you look at then it appears that only the $60 plan has unlimited 4G web. Yet with locked 4G access to only YouTube and the limited content on Metro's Video on Demand.

I have specific interests regarding if the new Net neutrality laws are designed to open this up to any streaming content...

Samsung Galaxy Indulge - Almost there.

Introduced on the 9th, it appears that the Galaxy Indulge is a scaled-down cousin of T-Mobile's Galaxy S 4G. Most would consider it the first real 4G smart phone for MetroPCS. I'll be waiting for phone with more battery life, AMOLED, hotspot feature, and Andriod 2.3. I read up on this nightmode feature for the camera. But nightmode does not appear to be the same as flash. Anyway, almost there as far as features.

By the way, most of the rumors were apparently off. It was not called the Forte, did not sport a 5 MP camera, and the screen was smaller as initially reported. ... » ... »...

Charlotte, NC

Does Metro have no love for us in the Carolinas? Charlotte is one of the top cities in the country as far as population. By all standards, we're a Metro area.

Why no love, then?

thinking of holding out...

I have to be honest. As MetroPCS expands their coverage and phone selection, it's getting harder to ignore them. I'm thinking of moving over from one of the "major" carriers that charges significantly more for significantly less. One thing is keeping me back, though, and that's finding the right phone.

Ideally, I want an Android phone with the new LTE 4G speed. I know Metro has announced that they will be coming out with more 4G phones, but does anyone know if that will include one with the Android platform?

I like the Optimus M, but downloading/crawling at 1xx scares me. Similarly, I love the design of the Samsung Craft, but not having a major platform like Android is a concern, since it's become very obvious that Apple and Googl...

New Minute Plans.....

Does anyone have more detailed information on the new minute plans???
I keep receiving conflicting information on minute charges when in the extended home area (stripped blue area) on your coverage map.
The dark blue is home the stripped blue is extended and the light blue is travel-talk which understandably is 19 cents/minute on the unlimited plan.
How does it work on the new minute plans????

Metro PCS Question

Whose network do they use? For some reason I thought they used the Sprint Network but when I put in my zip code on their website it says "Future Coverage", but Sprint has coverage here already.

I googled it and it just said it used a pcs network.
