Deal Details

Last Edited by widgit September 10, 2013 at 03:53 AM
Metro PCS has 4 unlimited lines for $100/mo. I was searching for 4 lines and almost went with Verizon today until I saw this deal. Verizon wanted almost $250/mo for a pretty much the same service metropcs is offering.
Offer Link [metropcs.com]

Terms say that each $25 gets the services from the $40/mo plan:
$40/mo plan features [metropcs.com]

If anyone is using their own phone, you can also get a discount for switching carriers. Up to $100 Rebate on a prepaid mastercard for up to 5 Lines!
Carrier Rebate [metropcs.com]

What really caught my eye was the $10 Sim Card. Now that Metropcs has simcards, almost any phone works on their network. Sim cards are $10 and get out of the crazy rates out there:

Check Phone Compatibility [metropcs.com]

If you need a phone, they have several decent Androids, but you might do better finding a cheap one on craigslist or ebay.

For sim card users they use the tmobile network which is what I'm currently on.
For cdma phones they use the verizon network.

I don't have a lot of experience with Verizon but I have lots of friends who like it, but can't stand the price changes they made recently.

My T-mobile coverage has been very good and the network has been really fast for me. But, the best price T-mobile has is $30/mo with more data (5gb 4g, then unlimited EDGE, per line) and they only give you 100 min/mo. I needed the minutes for work.

As far as I know they are now using T-Mobile's network, hence the new SIM card compatibility.

A similar 4 line plan is $100 with T-Mobile directly. However, taxes are roughly $20 more on top of that.

Do we know if you need to have a T-Mobile phone unlocked to work with Metro?

Yes. This is an ideal plan for multiple users who either already have phones or who area willing to settle without the latest and greatest and still pay a decent price on a phone. I've been shopping plans for phones all day long and I can say hands down this is the best deal period.

...My T-mobile coverage has been very good and the network has been really fast for me. But, the best price T-mobile has is $30/mo for the exact same usage as this deal (500mb 4g, then unlimited 3g, per line) plus they only give you 100 min/mo. Multiply $5/mo by 4 and that's a $20 savings per month or $240/yr.
I'm fairly certain the plan is 500mb 4G, then unlimited EDGE/2G after that. Although, in my area Sprint's 3G was about the same as Tmo's EDGE, it is worth mentioning the difference (about 100kb/s so a big drop from their normal data rates).

I have Tmo and love it. However, Tmo's coverage isn't for everyone- you have a better chance for good coverage in larger markets. I'm in Central Florida and have LTE coverage about 75% of the places I frequent. The next 23% I'm pretty well covered with their HSPA+ network ("3.5G" or 4G "lite") which is no slouch either with normal clocks around 14-20mb per the speedtest app. I'll hit low signal/EDGE in more rural areas around me- but it does happen.

Or, a Nexus 4 with the big price drop (200-250)... perfect for this plan, and if you really want LTE, you can hack it.

Tmobile gives you 5GB, 5000MB not 500MB at 4G speeds for $30 a month. 10x as much data which is the most expensive thing.

Yes you are absolutely right. I've been looking at plans all day and got it mixed up. It is 5gb. I was thinking about the 300MB-500MB I typically use per month since I'm on wifi pretty much everywhere I go. I did need the unlimited minutes for work though which makes this work perfect for me.

Wrong! T-mobile $30 is 5GB per month not 500 mb which is a joke to be honest.
