Well they have a Unlimited plan of $50 a month. The plan is a very good plan.. Unlimited Text, calls, long distance, internet, and more, There phones are not that good but. they are getting better they just came out with BlackBerry Curve 8330. So far it's a available in southern areas for now. However it will come to the northern states like NY, NJ, DE, PA, and etc. I hear they are coming out with a touchScreen so yeah that will be Interesting. I would say one down fall about Metropcs is the coverage and im not going to lie its getting better and so is the phones. The more they do that the better business they will have. Well yeah I have a Metropcs Phone. I like it and the coverage is getting better and stuff. Checkout the link below for more info. www.metropcs.com Does anyone else have a Metropcs Phone or has join or heard about the company. Your opinion is wanted?

I was with them for about 6 months during which time I managed to go through 3 different phones. They really are of a poor quality. I also had some serious billing issues, so much so that I was double billed on 3 of the 6 months, and cancelling was not as easy as they made out. This was all about 3-4 years ago when they were still relatively new so perhaps they have sorted out some of those issues.

They can be very strict if you don't pay your phone bill the day that it's due they will cut it off the next day. I guess things are getting better so far I have mines for about. 4-5 months I don;t really have any problems with it. Everything works fine for me.

Yes, I've heard of it. It's also owned by the government. Sooo they basically have the right see/hear anything and everything you do on that phone. I used to go to a school where all everyone had was MetroPCS (we just called it Metro). The phones are pretty cheap, and not in a good way...I mean poor quality...but who knows, maybe they've stepped their game up. I don't like them, I'll stick to T-Mobile.

Yeah I know there a government phone but it's less likely they will listen to what your doing lol.. Well yeah everyone well a good fraction of the people in my school havea metropcs Phone and I like it and there getting better. I have the keyboard phone. But one thing you can't beat is the $50 unlimited plan thing. Also yes I agree the phones are cheap. But there not at the same time. you get the first month free but the phones can be very expensive. the black berry is just $449 I was like wow. thats a lot of money for a phone but there is not contract or credit check. I guess it's reasonable offer I still think they should lower the price more people will buy it if they do. :)

I knew few people who had their unlimited plan service & ended up paying over $135 for 4 - 6 month due to coverage issues... They thought they were getting a great deal but they kept getting hit for "roaming" charges... They've used the phone for business uses & they didn't realize half the phone calls they were making were roaming calls, or "traveltalk" as they put it at 19 cents a minute... Few hundred minutes & 19 cents a minute added up pretty quickly...

It starts cheap, but the thing is you don't get voice mail or any of that good stuff un til you pay more. So that's kinda how they get you.
