Just to clarify:

DATA MAXIMIZER: Data compression by T-Mobile, where you can transfer up to 3x the amount of data than you could without compression (at least that's what they say).

This does NOT mean you get zero-rated Binge-On services (YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, etc STILL counts towards your data bucket on MetroPCS).

INTERNATIONAL DATA: Unless MetroPCS changed something within the last few months, from what I've heard MetroPCS does NOT get the same International Texting/Data coverage as T-Mobile does (FREE Texting/2G data in 140+ countries). It also does NOT get unlimited international talk/text roaming while in Canada & Mexico (but it's available as a $5/mo add-on: https://www.metropcs.com/add-on-services.html).


If you want these services, T-Mobile is the way to go.

Is there throttling on this plan? Does data turn off after 6GB?

Thanks OP, I would have moved to metroPCS, but the coverage is very bad in central jersey.

In store only?

Can we buy Sim cards on eBay and activate ourselves over the phone?

I have used GoogleFi because I wanted two networks at once (Sprint + TMo) and T-Mobile's wifi calling which is the only thing that saves us here at home. But it's $30 with 1GB of data. I wonder if 4 extra gigs of data are worth it switching to Metro, also we will not have Sprint coverage on top....

So $60 is a final bottom line of the bill, no stupid E911 Fees, Convenience fees, Line access fees, Federal communication fees, F*ck knows what for fees and Scr*w customers fee on top of this? EEK!

Truly unbelievable... Something must've happened with this carrier, we need a doctor to check if it is okay...

Can anyone verify no tax in Taxifornia too? As far as I know, CA charges taxes on prepaid plans too.

Yes.
T-Mobile Music Freedom = MetroPCS Music Unlimited
T-Mobile Binge-On = MetroPCS Data Maximizer

They also offer T-Mobile's "Mobile Without Borders" as MetroPCS "North America Unlimited" that is free sms/calling to any mobile and landline to and from US/Canada/Mexico w/ your mobile number.
