    Exclamation **Updated Rules and Guidelines for the MetroPCS Boards.**

    ILLEGAL ACTIVITY

    We are toughening our policy on illegal activity on the boards. Breaking any of the following rules will result in an immediate 7-day ban without prior notice. By reading this, you can consider this your formal warning: Ignorance of the forum policy is not a valid excuse:

    WAREZ--Distribution, trading, and soliciting of illegally pirated software ("warez") and services to modify, program, or flash phones is strictly prohibited.

    ESN CLONING--We will no longer tolerate any discussions, direct or indirect, about the cloning of ESN's. Nor will we tolerate guides, suggestions, or questions on how to go about doing so.

    FREE BREW--Brew is licensed software offered by your carrier. Modifying your phone to acquire Brew content without pay is illegal. Any discussion on how to acquire free Brew content is strictly prohibited.

    POSTING ETIQUETTE

    STICKIES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS--Always be sure to check the forum stickies and announcements first before posting.

    THE SEARCH TOOL--Use the search tool before you post. There is no excuse for starting a new thread when a subject has already been discussed. Take the time and have the patience to do an effective search, using proper keywords and even the advanced search functions, if necessary. You would be surprised to find that a great deal of what you're looking for can be found with nominal use of the search tool. Regardless; although the search tool is there for your convenience, posting is ultimately YOUR responsibility.

    THREAD HIJACKING--Thread hijacking will not be tolerated. Thread hijacking (also known as "cross posting") is when you deliberately post a reply to a thread that is not the same subject as the original post.

    SUBFORUMS--Be sure to post your thread in the proper forum/subforum. All flashing questions and topics about devices MetroPCS does NOT carry go in the Flashing and Modding subforum. The BlackBerry subforum is for the MetroPCS-branded BlackBerry ONLY: Do not ask questions about flashing BlackBerries from other carriers there. If you don't post your thread in the correct forum/subforum, it will be locked and/or deleted by a forum moderator without prior notice.

    MULTIPLE POSTS--Do not post several times about the same topic in new threads or in hijack attempts of other threads.

    FLAMING/TROLLING--Do not incite, instigate, or collaborate flame wars. Flaming is any sort of defamatory libel directed toward other members. If you have a rant, then take it up in the Rants forum. Flame-baiting ("trolling") will not be tolerated. Flame-baiting is posting something that you know will cause a flat-out argument on the boards.

    PERSONAL DISPUTES--If you feel you have a dispute with another member, please contact a forum moderator before taking it up personally. KEEP ANY PERSONAL DISPUTES OUT OF THE FORUMS! This includes accusations of FRAUD, which belong in the Fraud forum.

    OTHER CARRIERS--Questions and concerns about carriers other than MetroPCS do not belong in the MetroPCS forums. While questions about lashing another carrier's phone TO MetroPCS are allowed, flashing back to the original carrier is NOT: Visit that carrier's forum and ask your flashing questions there. Moreover, questions about another carrier's service and/or policies belong in that respective carrier's forum as well. Lastly, there is a forum dedicated to one service versus another: Please do not start a discussion about how one competitor is better or worse than MetroPCS in the MetroPCS forums.

    MEMBER PRIVACY--Do not post your private information in the public forums. This includes your email address, your phone number, your phone's ESN number, etc. Any information that might compromise a member's privacy will be removed by a forum moderator without prior notice.

    SPAM--You are allowed to promote your ESN adding and phone flashing services in the Flashing and Modding subforum (see the sticky there):

    http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1496007

    Any non-sanctioned self-promotion outside of this provisioning will be grounds for BANNING.

    GENERAL RULES AND GUIDELINES--Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our existing, forum-wide General Rules and Guidelines:

    http://www.howardforums.com/rules.php

    Thank you!: With your cooperation and continued support, we can all help make Howard Forums a better place for all MetroPCS subscribers!

    Any Violation of the Rules will result in a ban the more rules you break the longer your vacation. Have a nice day.
