THIS IS FOR NEW ACTIVATION ONLY. ALSO, YOU CANNOT FLASH A PHONE TO METROPCS ANYMORE.
Quite limited 4G network. Check coverage in your area by copying and pasting "http://maps.metropcs.com/" (for some reason a hotlink won't take you right to this page). Check "High Contrast View" in lower right corner.

MetroPCS does not have a 3g network, so you are throttle down to 2G when you are over the limit. Their 2G is pretty close to 56k modem speed, that's not a joke.


Galaxy S3 is $499.


What is the best Android phone under $200 for this deal?
ZTE Anthem 4G - $199

LG Motion 4G - $150

Coolpad Quattro 4g - $79 (if you are really on a budget)

I believe you have to buy a phone in-store also as it says "Activate a new phone.."

Seems like a good deal, but MetroPCS is being acquired by T-Mobile..so time will tell what happens to plans like this. (The phones will be useless since MetroPCS is CDMA..and T-Mobile plans on phasing it out).

MetroPCS is terrible in my area, but you can flash most of the Sprint phone to MetroPCS, like Evo LTE or Galaxy S3, except iphone 4s/5.

You only get 3G though. If you know how to use QPST, you can buy bad esn sprint phone and flash it to MetroPCS. I guess if you know how to use it, you would rather flash the phone and use it with $30 SERO plan without paying $20 more.

I believe it's the other way around. MetroPCS will be acquiring T-Mobile, but they are going with the GSM network like you said.

"The deal, which will be a reverse merger with MetroPCS buying out T-Mobile, will end with Deutsche Telekom owning 74% of the US-based budget carrier and MetroPCS getting a cool $1.5 billion. It’s easy to see why Deutsche Telekom wants to buy MetroPCS, as doing so will give T-Mobile the boost it needs here in the US. "
