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...

LTE Phones SCH-r900 and more (what will they run on?)

so the SCH-r900 a windows 7.0 based on the Omnia II? or a 2.1 Android like the Galaxy. Could we see the first Windows 4g on Metro? Or a slick 2.1 Android. Oooooohooo. Geek out with me. What do you know? What do you want? What do you think it'll be?

MetroPCS vs Straighttalk

OK, so here's the skinny. I've had both networks before. Currently I've got Straight talk, which the only problem I've had thus far is them taking my number and giving it away. I've been assigned a new one, and it's not that big of a deal to me. my contacts are all still there, so I just sent them a message. None of these are business anyway.

Now, I left Metro because of the stupid prices they had at the time, and the exceedingly lame coverage. upon looking them up, I see they have what appears to be "better" coverage than before, but what are all your opinions on it?

So far the only things attracting me are the $40/mo for unlimited talk/txt/pic deal and the Messager II.

Straight talk i like only because of the Verizon network cover...

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 announces new Samsung SCH & LTE network @ CTIA 2010

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.
