If, the other week, when MetroPCS announced that they’d brought their 4G LTE goodness (and single compatible featurephone) to San Francisco, you were a little jealous of your West-coast brethren, then you can now relax… as today those bringers of unlimited plans announced that they are expanding into Boston, New York City, and Sacramento Metro Areas.
Unfortunately, they still haven’t announced… → Read More
If you’re the type of person that craves high download speeds, but doesn’t go for the whole “smartphone” thing (plus you live in SF), then — as strange as it may sound — MetroPCS have you covered.
Today MetroPCS launched their LTE network in San Francisco, and — just like before — are only offering the one device to use on it.
Namely, the Samsung Craft.
Yup, it’s a featurephone. I dunno… → Read More
MetroPCS has been around since 1994. Windows Mobile has been around in one form or another since 2000. You think at some point their paths would have crossed, right? Nope – not until now, at least. Live images of the Samsung SCH-i220 Code have just leaked out, and there it is, emblazoned across the top of the device: the MetroPCS logo. Running WinMo 6.1 on a QVGA display with EVDO, a 2.0… → Read More
Whoa-ho-ho! Way to keep these releases on lock, MetroPCS! Striking while the iron is luke warm, they’ve released the Motorola QA30, a mere six months after it first became available. With Stereo Bluetooth and the QWERTY keyboard being the primary notable features, the specs weren’t exactly mind boggling when the handset first launched – so half a year later and priced at $249… → Read More
MetroPCS Communications Inc, a Dallas-based wireless carrier, is allowing customers to bring phones from other carriers to its network. Supposedly this is one of the largest carriers to do such a thing. Analysts say that this will be the trend as the US wireless market starts to open up. That said, if you think you can activate an iPhone on MetroPCS Network, it’s not going to happen. They use… → Read More
When choosing a cell phone, you look at price and features with the former being the biggest player, right? Ok, calling/data plans are also a big deal, but most consumers just want a cheap phone regardless. That much we can agree on. But what happens when you don’t want to deal with one of the larger carriers and you’ve got MetroPCS in the area, a carrier that offers unlimited plans? Since… → Read More
Today marks ZTE’s (who?) first crack into the US market with a CDMA clamshell for MetroPCS. The C88 features a VGA camera, Bluetooth, e-mail (@metro), 2-inch screen, WAP, 60MB of built-in memory and comes with Sudoku. We’ve got one in house and will be testing it in San Francisco next week since NYC isn’t one of MetroPCS’s markets. It’s a mid-tier device priced at… → Read More
Samsung has announced the r410. The latest slider from Samsung has a QWERTY keyboard, stereo Bluetooth, speakerphone (wow!), a built-in VGA camera with night shot, advanced voice recognition, IM and e-mail. Battery life is a paltry 2.5 hours, though. But it comes in red and black. → Read More
What is it with these two companies? First, they’re more in love than a CBS soap opera. Next thing you know, they’re splitting up and stock is tanking. What’s the deal here? Seems MetroPCS decided it didn’t want to purchase Leap Wireless anymore because it feels it’s already a big enough player in the wireless market. Really a shame. There could have been more… → Read More
