On Samsung's web site, the R560 Vice, which is for sale in Canada, appears with MetroPCS branding on it. The name "Messager" appears below the phone pictured on the Samsung site. It resembles the Samsung R450 Messager, which was sold by MetroPCS. The phone seen on the Samsung site is a sideways slider that has a full QWERTY keyboard for messaging and regular numeric keypad on the front. The FCC has approved the Samsung R560. The FCC documents note that the R560 has tri-band CDMA radios, which MetroPCS requires, EVDO data capabilities, Bluetooth and a 2 megapixel camera. The "Messager" phone pictured on the Samsung web site is likely the R560 Vice, re-branded for MetroPCS.

It'll be on Cricket as well.

My manager is testing this phone as we speak. Keypad is really easy to use.
Looks like a cool phone. Too bad it's not on a network that actually can provide coverage to the masses. 😁

This is no mystery phone....

It's called the Samsung Vice and Bell Canada has had it for awhile...
