Similar to https://slickdeals.net/f/15631606-metro-in-store-port-in-w-60-plan-activation-apple-iphone-11-100?src=SiteSearchV2Algo1 but now price increased to $100, no more 3 months waiting for a $50 gift card and minimum plan seems to be $40/month instead of $60/month.

and before anyone ask....

to have phone unlock in 180 days (6 months)

u need to have activated the phone 180 days ago.

u do not. repeat do NOT have to pay for service for 180 days.

the above has been true for most every metro deal in the past.
it is extremely likely true for this deal as well

also note...many times M reps will make up rules...

if it sounds odd...its probably made up

The sim won’t work in any other phone without contacting Metro. Probably won’t affect unlock.

Metro has an online option to add a new phone/transfer the line to another phone that seldom works. There is a charge for phone based transfer, but they will waive the fee when you cite the non working web option.

Quote from DeathCab :
Most charge activation fees ($20+), require you to bundle accessories to get promo pricing (cases, screen protectors, chargers, extended warranties, etc. all at Best Buy level prices), and some just flat out refuse to honor promos in general. You also have to provide your drivers license in most cases which is intended to prevent promo abuse, but is just uncomfortable in general with the sketchiness of many authorized dealers and the concept of prepaid.

Corporate stores (owned / operated by T-Mo) don't have these issues other than the ID requirement, and I would trust T-Mo with my ID much more than joe schmoe's prepaid emporium.



Yes, they can and will. Like most promos, there is always a disclaimer about participation varying. Corporate let's the authorized dealer stores run wild. I think it's a tight spot for T-Mo to be in because of how Metro was built before the acquisition. They know the AD stores are bad for the overall perception of the brand, but they're also somewhat essential because they serve a lot of areas that wouldn't be economical for T-Mo to own and operate corporate stores. The sim locking to device (where you have to go through Metro to swap sims on the same phone - different than the sim carrier lock that doesn't allow you to use a VZW sim) is also a bone they throw to dealers that hurts the product. It's a catch-22.

As others have said, if you must deal with an AD store and they demand add-ons, target carrier ad-ons like insurance through Metro because you can at least cancel and get partial refunds of some those through Metro directly after you've left the store.
Providing prospective from behind the counter. Many, many years ago I worked in the wireless industry at authorized dealers for all 4 major carriers as well as numerous MVNOs including MetroPCS. MetroPCS was (and may still be) by far the most heavy handed on the way they dealt with dealers... BUT you got the feeling they would mostly overlook things if you met or exceeded quotas. Though it always felt like you were being treated as a 2nd-class partner. This was in stark contrast to a company like T-Mobile which felt like a silent, helpful partner (that's my recollection at the time and before they purchased MetroPCS).

If you didn't meet a month's quota (wether it be activations, price plans, specific add-ons, insurance, etc.), you got reduced or no allocation for phones. As you might imagine, not having phones during promotions is extremely detrimental to business. Dealers were highly encouraged to push add-ons and higher priced plans. From a purely monetary prospective, it makes sense to upsale even if it isn't always customer-friendly. Some did it with salesmanship while others just flat-out required add-ons and/or accessories. What you might perceive as "honest" dealers, that strictly followed promotions, and did not place additional requirements on customers quickly found themselves without phones, sometimes deauthorized, and out of business. The culture in a sense mostly bred out "honest" dealers but it also helped to grow the carrier's business.

Dealers made next to nothing on phones themselves and SIM cards are purchased from MetroPCS or a Master Agent with cost being higher than from most other carriers... nothing is free to dealers. Asking a dealer, especially 1 you don't normally patronage, to provide you a free SIM is asking them to lose money. Most of the profit came from activations, add-ons, in-store fees, and accessories (which are usually very high margins). That's why these are heavily pushed during sales... They are a business after all. If a rep didn't give you the sales pitch, they aren't doing their job. If it's optional, just kindly decline. In the end, ask first and take your business elsewhere if the deal doesn't fancy you. You are encouraged to call ahead to ask questions to save time and frustration.

* DISCLAIMER: this is 1 person's opinion from years of industry experience from many years in the past within a certain geographical region. This in no way reflects MetroPCS or it's authorized dealers as a whole. Furthermore, things may have changed since then.

I love this deal. This is good for anyone who can wait 6 months to unlock.

I took 2 phones (Samsung Galaxy A53) and 1 phone (Samsung Galaxy A13) in this deal. They said they can not give any more free phones. I will wait for 6 months and unlock them.

Not sure when can I visit the store to buy free phones again.

Good luck, the stores here won't let you buy unless you buy a case and a screen protector and insurance. Some BS about they had a meeting and someone walked out and dropped their phone. That's what I was told over the phone by 2 different ones. They must really get a good commission for those.

The wildly different experiences with Metro blow my mind. I recently did a similar deal for 2 iPhone SEs and it was so painless at a corporate store. Guy didn't even mention a case, and I simply declined insurance. No other fees. Sounds like I got lucky reading all these data points. I was in and out in 30-45 minutes with two new phones. Boost mobile data sims are the easiest to get for porting. $1 each.

Quote from SmilingGiraffe355 :
I was just there literally a few hours ago, I was given the old promo. At first when I got there I just asked about the iPhone 11 without mentioning any sort of promo, the salesperson(corporate store) was telling me about the same thing as the OP($40 line $99 iPhone) but before I had to pay the Manager told him that I needed to be on the $60 plan or else I wont get the $400 rebate and just get $100 rebate on the Phone, he actually showed his screen as he was processing the Sale, I wasn't aware of this current promo and was there to get the old promo so I didn't argue. and got the iPhone11 for $100+$60line+$12 insurance
Is it a new Iphone 11?
