Huh....what?

I no longer live in a MetroPCS coverage area so I'm not in the loop on this one....but what sense does it make to offer rate plans based on the make and model of your phone? That's a horrible business model.

Good luck MetroPCS!

You and Sprint have done this from the ground up.
No acquisitions, buyouts, mergers, etc., as the others.
Admirable to say the least.
Ignore the people that have nothing better to do than bash your network.
They are bored with poor perspectives and lives.
Keep up the good work!!!! Smile

Thanks for the review

I felt it was unbiased and useful. The info was complete and consice bashing.

Even if the Craft is short, its just a stepping stone on a long long path... to infiniti and beyond Very Happy

Those customers won't mind the interface.

Second, LTE is MetroPCS' 3G. Their network performance is disappointing if you've used T-Mobile's HSPA+, Clear's WiMAX or even AT&T's and Verizon Wireless' networks on a very good day. But if you've been using 1xRTT for the last couple years, it isn't so bad.

Third, this is the most expensive phon...

Samsung Craft

Judging by the review performed by our good man Philip Berne, it seems that metroPCS wants the bragging rights of being the nation's first LTE carrier at any cost. As mentioned on the review, the Craft is just feature phone (and a poor one too). I seriously believe that the folks at metro simply want to sell a phone under the 4G "brand you want to call it that) just to bring more costumers to their network without having to really deliver a true 4G speed to their devices. This unit does exactly what they want: a high-priced model that gives the customer an idea of what is like to have a fast network. MetroPCS knows that with this device there is no real stress on its network. No tethering, no real browsing experience, no platform on the devi...
