Samsung Galaxy S 3 announced for metroPCS

i though it would be $500+ and from what people have been saying is this phone is getting high LTE speed 14mbps down and 10mbps up.

Yeah.... Putting one of the top phones in the world on the worst network, well at least in Michigan it's just s***, is just not a good idea I think...

Avoiding!

They have old towers in michigan. In NYC(metros AWS tower market) in the year I was with them I had excellent reception and not a single dropped call, which is amazing to me. I only switched to AT&T cause of their nice High end Smartphone selection.
I'm glad Metro is getting this phone they really need it bad
their Smartphone selection sucks.

The reason that Metro PCS is offering this phone so cheaply is the memory storage space.....1 GB on this type of phone is just silly with all the things it can do. That small amount of storage will not let you use all of the amazing features of the phone and all of the amazing apps you can put on it. The plan price is great ofcourse....40.00 a month is awesome, but you will pay the rest in the aggravation with the things that you are missing out on. I signed up with a new company that's just on the market. Credo Mobile is a company set up by political activists trying to make a difference in this world of ours. A % of the bill you pay each month is donated to many different causes they watch over. I pay a bit more for my bill, but my coverage is amazing and I have 32 GB of fantastic fun to rock down with and I've only had it a couple of weeks now and I am totallllly in love with the company, the phone, the coverage, the customer service and the billing options and plans. It is a company definatly worth checking out. I'm gonna keep on keeping on with mine. The amount of storage Metro's Phone comes with is kinda sad so hopefully the get a bit better phones in the future. I hope this helps you guys...Best of luck in your shopping and talking.
