is the phone unlocked to use a t-mobile sim?
^HSPA+ 42mbps---------------------------------------------- ^LTE
can someone clear up the diff between metro-pcs and t-mobile. i'm n NY and metro-pcs should have access to t-mobile towers. the coverage with cell service should be the same between the 2, right? if its the same, isn't the metro-pcs $40 the same as the t-mobile $50 plan but $10 less.
Why not simply buy an Optimus L9 from Walmart? They sell it for T-Mobile prepaid for $199 and it works with post paid as well as prepaid.
But MetroPCS is significantly higher for multi-lines. 5 Family lines on 500MB TM is $110. Same plan on MetroPCS is $170! and with that you don't even get the free international data and 20c/m calls.
Here are FAQs which may cover most issues about the merger:

Doesn't the T-mobile Simple Choice plan roam onto AT&T in outlying areas where T-mobile doesn't have service, while MetroPCS won't roam off netowrk? With the PTA 14% discount, the T-mobile Simple Choice plan should come out to about $100 after taxes and fees for four people in my area. The roaming makes a big difference for my work travels.
Unlimited text and data when traveling internationally is also nice on the T-mobile plan, whereas MetroPCS doesn't have that.
