    Avoid the Hydro. I got one, and it's not actually waterproof, I don't care what the (false) advertising says. The audio on mine dies anytime it gets wet. I emailed Kyocera and got this in reply:

  2. Hydro Xtrm losing audio after a dunk-bad unit?

    Bought a Metro PCS Hydro xtrm last week before going on vacation. Took it to the pool, and noticed a problem. When it gets wet, the audio quits. No sound on video's calls, no beeps, no rings,...

    Zintain's right. The unlimited plan doesn't allow tethering. You have to drop to the 2.5 Gig plan, and pay an extra five bucks a month for it in order to "officially" tether.

    I'm a Metro Customer who moved to a Windows phone, which put me on the Tmobile system, although I'm still a metro customer. Yes, Wi-Fi calling works fine. You have to call them to have it...

    I'd wondered about that. But both numbers were ours, and both are MPCS devices using Tmobile towers. I do have to say that I still like the Windows phone a lot!

    FYI, I've found their Facebook page to be my go-to starting point for Customer Service now. In the past it was hit or miss-sometimes great, sometimes terrible. On Facebook, one direct message has...

    Switched my wife and I to Windows phones (521)s the other day. So far it's been great, but yesterday I noticed a weird problem on both phones.

    Yes, it does, I've got a Nokia Lumia 521 that has it. I had to call the Metro PCS 888 number because their * number would no longer recognize me after they moved me to the Tmo system. I called,...
  9. Moved from LG (MPCS) to Lumia (TMO) -experience

    I decided to replace my dysfunctional Motion with a Lumia 521, and things went fine. The only thing I did notice was that the coverage was not quite as good as shown on either the TMO or MPCS maps....

    Move from LG Motion to Lumia 521 or L9?

    I've got a dysfunctional LG Motion on MPCS. Dies on it's own from time to time, so it's time for a replacement. I know I'll end up on TMo at some point, so I may as well bite the bullet.

    I'm...

    They've got to get them in the markets where they're already out first :D I think they're about as real as Unicorns at this point, at least they are in Atlanta-I have yet to find one.

    We've got three phones on Metro. Two are here with me (my daughters) in Forsyth County, and my wife has the third at her office in Alpharetta, which is definitely too far to be on the same tower.

    Customer Service Rant
