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...

Metro MMS question

Hoping someone on here knows the answer to this... Is there intercarrier MMS operability between Sprint and MetroPCS? I have a phone from each carrier and I get error/fail messages when trying to send picture messages between the two. Any help/insight will be greatly appreciated!

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????
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

LTE phone in Vegas

I have a Samsung Craft now.
purchased this device and what a joke. If this is 4g you do not want it. Selecting any streaming video or video on demand is slower than any other 3G service. Doing anything web related even when it shows 5 bars and 4G is ridiculously slow. I see why no other carrier will launch any LTE phone devices to start as they are not ready if this is an indication. Other carriers would sell a feature phone like this for $19.99 not $299

Ringtones, alert alternatives (Samsung Freeform r350)

I put the model of my phone just in case that matters.

Ok, I understand that with metro you can get bundles... $5/month for 5 ringtones or $5/month for 2 Greetme (answer) tones. That is legit and what they offer and you have to keep paying that extra $5 each month for the ringtones and/or greetme tones. I called and again confirmed that you cannot use the tones if you do not pay the extra 5 a month. so you can just get (1)...drag...

I do NOT want to go to some ripoff site. I just want perhaps a couple more choices of alert sounds (there are TWO) on this phone for text messages, photo messages, alarm etc. I have looked at many cr@ppy "FREE RINGTONE" sites and the ones I have found, #1 don't work and #2 I don't trust them.

Are there A...
