    If you sign into Google Play through the web browser, it will send actual apps to download and install on your phone. It's a different mechanism from that annoying (to me) Instant Apps feature.

    If you're curious, you could get Signal Check Pro or a similar app. It will tell you how strong your signal is, what band you're connected to, and who you're roaming with if applicable.

    If you bought the phone outright, you could consider the Sprint Kickstart plan for $25/month (plus taxes) rather than Virgin Mobile, but it all depends on which carrier works best in your area, and...

    Technically, you only need to stay with Metro for the month you pay for when you switch to them and get the phone. The phone will be unlockable for use with other providers after 6 months regardless...

    There is no contract with Metro, but your phone will be eligible for unlock after 6 months, whether or not the phone is active for that entire time.

    It's a program where Samsung offers free or discounted phones to people in exchange for access to analytics about how the device is used. I first became part of it when Samsung was offering a free...

    It's too bad some of the things I wrote seem to have been misconstrued. The "fiasco" came from trying to set up service with Sprint; it took communication with several departments to complete what I...

    I just switched to the Sprint Kickstart plan a couple of days ago to use the Galaxy A50 I was offered through Samsung's Device Insights Program. My family is with Metro, but that wasn't an option for...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
