Metro has roaming deal with Sprint too, but in Metro's AWS markets the "Sprint" signal doesn't kick in on flashed CDMA phones. You are just out of luck in New York and Philly. Phone just doesn't work. The way the article reads, that's the same situation for Cricket.
Cricket has a rule that if 50% of your phone use is "roaming" they have a right to cancel your account. Metro has similar rule too. Most of your use has to be in "home" market.
From a Cricket dealer/employee, Daniel885:
I would be careful about that. If you buy an iPhone in a PCS market but you live in an AWS market, keep in mind, the iPhone will not work on Cricket's towers because there is no AWS support. It will be using a roaming partner. If 50% of your usage is off-network, Cricket may choose to restrict your access to the nationwide roaming network leaving you with no coverage.
Your creed may be interesting, but your deeds are much more convincing.

A good choice is a form of opinion now with that being said its up to u to decide what u need and what u dont need. If your asking me to compare the pros and cons of the Lg connect and the Lg esteem and see which one is better for you theres only a few factors that need to be compared. First of all i have the Lg esteem i love the phone never had a single prob i have the 3000mah extended battery it easily last two days without charge, now the first comparison you would have to decide if it matters to you is the screen size 4.3 inch for the Lg esteem or 4 inch even for the Lg connect ? to me this isnt much to compare 3 cm difference. dual core 1.2ghz processor with the Lg connect compared to 1ghz processor with the Lg esteem? Again think about what apps you use and do you consider them cpu hogs meaning they use alot of your processor performance, are they any apps on the market that do use alot of cpu? for now there are high end games comming out that do use cpu along with the integrated graphics quite a bit. so if ur a hardcore mobile gamer and want a full experience i would go with the Lg connect. Now also the Lg connect has more ram also 1ghz compared to the 512 of ram of the Lg esteem. now for me an important advantage that the Lg connect has is the cat 3 uicc card that gives it the ability to talk and use data at the same time, i was bummed out that the esteem didnt have it ..... but im happy that i can plug my phone to my hdtv and play games on my screen or stream netflix as well but yea thats pretty much in my opinion things you should consider i wont tell you the esteem is the best phone, what im telling you is decide in what you really want and make a choice. anyways either way Lg made two great phones and i know either way you go you will be happy.
I'm just wondering when is metro coming out with an ice cream sandwich android phone? Seriously metro has zero Ics phones, and google is about to release 4.1 jellybean in about a week or so. smh.
