Fairly new Metro PCS customer here and so far so good. My old carrier Alltell was gobbled by Verizon and the pricing was just out of sight compared to Metro. The kids I put on Net 10 prepaid. They get 150 minutes a month for $7.50 a month and that includes the phone. It is no longer worth the two year contract just to get a phone the prices of phones are actually reasonable now.
I’m not a metropcs customer but I’m betting you won’t recognize the company in 5-7 years.
