Is this GSM or CDMA, I believe CDMA as Metro PCS is CDMA. Can some one confirm?
Its not uncommon for manufacturers to Produce one model for Both CDMA and GSM - Best example Iphones on Sprint/Verison vs AT&T. Does anyone who picked up this phone or already own it confirm?
For everyone getting excited thinking this is GSM, word of caution, this can be the CDMA one.I looked a lot and couldnt find anything so went the crude way of comparing......the sizes are different, but the manual shows inserting SIM, that could be for LTE which has to be done on both the models I think.
Also note the weight difference, there are two different phones, this one could be CDMA !!!.
This is GSM. T-Mobile's merger with metroPCS was completed in May, and as such T-Mobile is moving their customers to GSM devices and phasing out or clearing their CDMA devices as they have to shut down the CDMA network I believe by 2014 so they can re-use the cellular bands.
This phone was just launched like 2 weeks ago. There's no way they would still be launching CDMA devices on metroPCS at this point anymore. All new devices on metroPCS this point forward should be assumed to be GSM.
If you are buying from MetroPCS in-store this is GSM phone (LG MS659 Optimus F3)
After MetroPCS initial stuff you are left with only 1GB of internal storage (you can add Micro SD card for additional storage, which is not included in the phone)
If you are used to 4.5" or bigger screen you will find this one very small (I know it says 4" but for all practical purpose if you are used to bigger screens this one looks small)
One of the best battery life in the market. (at least for me)
One additional point you pay tax on $130 (current price in-store); so for $40 after rebate (if you are porting your number) this is a great no-contract phone (actually it is in-directly 3 months contract assuming you will receive your rebate by then)
