    MetroPCS uses CDMA technology while the iPhone is a GSM device. The iPhone will not work for MetroPCS, just as it will not work for Verizon or Sprint.

    Who is the 'short-haircut' chick from the Facetime commercial and where do we find out more about her?

    ahhhh... Life was so much simpler back in the iPhone 2G days, when no one got a subsidized price, and the entitled minions of society were left out.

    1) Find a leprechaun & capture him. He'll grant you 3 wishes...
    2) Find a magic lamp with a genie in it. Rub the lamp. The genie will give you 3 wishes.

    Actually, it will work. I read an article online that Metro PCS would allow you to use any phone with there service, so I went down there to ask. The lady said I could use any phone, including the iphone, but some of the features would not work. (GPS, Web, E-mail, Everything that makes the iphone cool, etc.)

    No it will not work...the lady was wrong. Either she was misinformed, or she's an idiot. The correct statement is the most CDMA phones can be flashed for metro now. If the phone isnt CDMA, it aint happenin.

    And we all know how unreliable customer customer support can be with their (lack of) knowledge.
