For the purpose of saving some $ I am looking to switch from AT&T to a family account w/ Metro PCS. I live in Texas and per the map (zip 76208) there seems to be good coverage. Any opinions as far as if saving (about $20 per month) some money and getting more features in all accounts is worth the switch from what I think is good coverage and selection of phones w/ AT&T.
Thanks for the response. While data speed is important, how is the voice coverage? I have read about phones going in ans out of roaming... but it is sort of confuising.
I have the Samsung Indulge LTE phone and the speeds are really good data wise.
I have been on Sprint/Nextel, Cingular and I have NEVER had a problem with Metro PCS. As a matter of fact... I have gotten 2 other family members to switch over to Metro and they will be saving money too!!!
I very rarely drop coverage... almost never. MEtro has great coverage. At times, my co-worker has to use my phone (He has verizon) because I get more coverage than he does in some areas. Great choice btw, this will save you a LOT of money.
In dfw, att is coverage king. Buy a cheap metro phone and carry it around for a couple weeks before you start to port numbers out though to make sure you have coverage where it counts.

Hey, I went from AT&T to Metro. I live in NJ though. I think I've had more drop calls on AT&T and call quality is clearer on Metro.
i say port it out. no problem porting it right back or to anyone else. i truly believe there are less issues when you just port immediately than wait. at least, from what i've dealt with there are less issues. i end up having less issues that way, including when they need to port back to their original carrier or to another one.
u said texas eh? lol ull have some of the best coverage in texas and as far as Lte goes ur speeds will be even better i belive another member from texas with metro clocked out around 6mbs if im not mistaken while here in florida my best clock out was at 5 by a miracle. so coverage ur good to go lte data even better. ur in metro pcs home land where its main company is located at any better than that and ull live next to one of the towers lol jk
