Did a quick search and I didn't see this posted so fyi. Metropcs came out with a new promotional plan called the M30. As you've already guessed, the plan is $30 a month before taxes ofcourse.

The M30 includes:
Caller id
Call waiting
Extended home roaming
Domestic long distance
SMS text messaging
International Text
Enhanced Voicemail

No metroweb but is a pretty good and inexpensive plan for people that just use their phone for calling and text.
