Blackberry curve 8330

I know MetroPCS has the Blackberry Curve 8330 but I can't find it anywhere at any stores. So I was wondering, since Verizon has the exact same phone, if I could just take a Verizon Blackberry Curve 8330 and have it activated on a MetroPCS account and still access everything that I normally would on MetroPCS's Blackberry.

MetroPCS has announced a new Samsung SCH-r900 at CTIA 2010. It is due the 2nd half of 2010. Corresponding to the introducing of the new Samsung is the launch of a MetroPCS LTE network in LA. No details on the SCH-r900 have emerged but some have suggested that it is perhaps similar to the Finesse SCH-r810. The phone is LTE enabled and CDMA. Its speculated that it will switch as needed between the LTE OFDMA and CDMA networks depending on availability in the area.

MetroPCS' LTE will be launched over AWS in select areas where it will be co-located with the existing 1x CDMA network. LTE is marketed as 4G even though it does not conform to IMT Advanced 4G requirements. A 4G compliant phone by Sprint was also announced prior to CTIA 2010 last we...

SmartPhone Capabilities for MetroPCS?

I have a few questions regarding two MetroPCS Smart Phones. I have asked customer service reps in the store and a technical support rep by telephone. However, they appear only moderately knowledgeable because they have not actually used the Smart Phones. I have read posts on other forums on the internet and been able to find limited information. The information I have found really does not answer my questions. The two models that work on MetroPCS for which I am interested are the Samsung Code and the BlackBerry 8330. I am currently using a Nokia 2270, so this will be a big change. My questions are as follows:

1) Does the GPS within both phones allow you LPS type function? In other words, can I load Google Maps on either the Code (Windows ...

metro help

this is more a request to all metro reps.... when there is a system wide update and you have to enter an address please contact the customer and get the correct info. as an employee of the insurance provider we have run into problems when it comes to having the customer verify the address and most recently having phones sent to the wrong address. also advise your customers if possible to update their info as soon as there is a change if possible. this would help alot.

New Plans

Has anyone seen the new Metro plans? Drooling

That family plan is exceptional and so is the new $30 plan. They're going to run into some angry customers about it only being available to new customers though.

Samsung Code (Windows Mobile OS)

Just got a heads up about a "Samsung Code." It's a new phone that's coming out soon for metroPCS. It's sort of a Samsung ACE in it's shape with Windows Mobile operating system. I have no other info on the phone, but later this month we will be getting a training and I suppose more details about the phone. If any one can provide any more information about this phone I would like sure to know.
