They don't offer contracts, so when you sign up, you need to pay full retail for the phone, instead of the standard discount most major carriers offer when you sign the contract (although you end up paying it back in monthly service charges).
The service is not the best, nor is the selection of phones or the high end technology, but it's cheap and if that's what you're looking for, they have a pretty good service to offer.
My buddy is teaching English in India, my sister works in Hong Kong and my brother is headed to the Philippines.
I keep passing by those signs in L.A. for METROPCS but this time, I wont ignore it.
Paying MetroPCS bills is convenient. You can pay at any Metro store, online, or at supermarkets which is what I did last week at Publix. I have a friend who used to sell cell phone service for another company. He told me that early in 2002, right after MetroPCS started their service, his business started a steep decline. I would say that at least half the cell phone users here in Broward Cty. use MetroPCS.
