MetroPCS today announced several promotions meant to entice consumers to ditch their carrier in favor of MetroPCS. For starters, customers who activate a new line on a $40 or higher service plan will receive an extra 1GB of LTE data per month on top of whatever data bucket they choose. The extra 1GB will remain with the line as long as the customer sticks with MetroPCS. Customers who port their number will be eligible for a $50 rebate on a new phone. MetroPCS is also offering a package deal on the LG Leon. MetroPCS is selling the Leon with a month of service (unlimited talk, text, and 1GB of data) for $59 after a mail-in rebate. Today's promotions are available only in stores.

Free Data

Amazing how the paradigm has shifted from Unlimited Data for $44.99 on devices like the Palm Treo and the Blackberry 7000 which couldn't use data for much beyond sending and receiving email. The carriers force data plans upon their customers when there was very little they could use it for. Now they have scammed them into using it at greater speeds and paying per GB. All the while selling 'air'.

Still overpriced compared to their biggest competitor Cricket.
