    Metro doesn't limit their data speed. I've gotten close to 100 Mbps before. It all depends on your location and how crowded your local towers are.

    The last time I upgraded to a Metro phone, I think it was $30 off the full price - but you also pay the in-store fee for switching there.

    You can also get any unlocked or T-Mobile phone somewhere...

    On the website they list a SIM card at $10. It would even be more expensive to port in for the free phone deal due to taxes - although you get a phone in the process, which you could either sell or...

    Metro funnels all their sales through their stores, so you would need to go into a store to buy one. Otherwise, I did see Metro SIMs available on eBay; you could take a chance with one of those and...

    Yesterday I tried using the automated system to change to an unlocked V20, but it transferred me to a rep without me asking it to. The rep told me there was a $15 charge for her to change phones for...

    Thanks for the correction. I missed that when reading their policies.

    Bear in mind that Cricket caps its data speeds at 3-8 Mbps depending on plan, so you were never going to get great speeds from them. It's nice that Metro doesn't have the same kind of policies to...

    I'm just outside of Minneapolis and have good coverage and speeds just about everywhere I go, except inside my local Target store. Heading outstate, I've gotten solid LTE at least 2 hours west, right...

    That reversal didn't take as long as I expected. Glad I waited to trade out phones that were acting up.

    Thanks to Metro for listening - they've gone a long way toward building back up my...

    I can see two reasons for tying the fee to SIM swapping, neither directly related to scaring people away from Metro:

    1. To keep people from immediately switching away from their new phone and...

    Don't you get it? People aren't happy about the fee, no matter how you try to spin it and insult those who want to complain. It's ridiculous to charge $15 for something most of us were capable of...

    I was using a locked T-Mobile LG G5 on Metro with no problems. It also got the update to 8.0 while on Metro - I did check for update rather than getting a push notification,but that may be because I...

    You may say good for the dealers, but customers are only looking for the best deal for themselves. If a company stops being customer-friendly, as this move seems, people WILL go elsewhere. In droves....

    It definitely sounds like whoever took the phone was using it and giving the number out as theirs. If you have the time and inclination, you could see if the police will pursue the thief based on the...

    I bought a new phone in store a few days ago due to a dying charging port on my old one. The upgrade deal I got was $30 off the retail for a new phone - plus a free case (that was an offer from the...

    Your best bet is to buy a new phone, then sell your 5s to recover some of the money. I think the only places taking trades are the postpaid carriers, but you'll spend more going with them.than you'd...

    Not sure why they won't let you switch, but I have a suggestion: Call Customer service and ask if they'll let you. Maybe if you suggest that you'll port your number to a different service, they can...

    Not sure if anyone has tried porting Freedompop numbers, but they run on Sprint or AT&T and should be eligible for porting promotions.

    The downside is that it can be hard to get a number ported...

    Correct. You can't use a locked Metro PCS phone on T-Mobile, but you CAN use a locked T-Mobile phone on Metro PCS.

    As I'm sure was said above, it's because Metro subsidizes the cost of phones you...

    I'm now using a T-Mobile LG G5 on Metro PCS with no issues. Apparently it only works one way - you need to get a Metro PCS phone unlocked for T-Mobile but not vice versa.

    For the last year, VM has been wishy-washy about whether they were continuing service outside of iPhones... this shows they're at least moving away from Androids if not out of business altogether.

    Most phones have a pop out SIM tray on the side. EVERY smartphone uses a SIM/UICC card now, for LTE, not just the ones on GSM networks.
