    New promotional $25 MetroPCS plan for new customers, can I buy a phone off of eBay???

    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to this forum and would appreciate your help.

    I would like to sign up for the new $25 unlimited talk/text plan that Metro PCS offers for new customers. I visited one of the locations and they told me that I need to purchase in-store(?) one of their 3 phones that they have for this specific plan. Then I went to Metro PCS website to double check and Q9 below says that I do need to purchase a phone but doesn't say that the phone needs to be from the Metro PCS actual store. I would like to purchase one of the new phones from eBay because eBay has got much better prices, but don't know if at the store they will be willing to activate it for the $25 plan. Please let me know if I can purchase the phone from eBay and still activate it for the $25 plan. Also, would you know if they charge the $10 Promotion Fee that Q10 states?

    9. Q. What phones are eligible for the new $25 Rate Plan?
    A. Requires purchase of a new phone: Presto, Pinnacle, Contour, Select, or Freeform III. No exceptions.
    10. Q. Are there any fees associated with the new $25 Rate Plan Promotion?
    A. Yes, you must pay a $10 Promotion Fee upon accepting the Promotion offer.

    As long as the phone is new, they will be able to activate it under the 25$ plus the 10$ promo. fee.

    Better hurry. Unless it's been extended, this deal ends at the end of June. It was a limited time promotion to get rid of some show selling phones and to get people into stores.

    Your creed may be interesting, but your deeds are much more convincing.

    My sales rep told me the same thing extended through 07/31/12, but you know metro just cause they have a date doesn't mean they go till the last day.
