    For The Price, One of the Worst phones ever

    Posted
    jmy72

    When you buy the Higher cost phones from a phone company, you expect a Higher end phone. This is purely not the case. Battery life is just plain horrible. I normally have to charge it twice a day. The phone Signal really stinks. If you go indoors, you lose signal very easy. It Claims to have a 1.3 Megapixel camera, but even at its highest quality, the camera provides very sub par results. I understand its a phone, not a camera, but even to get a halfway clear picture, you have to have nerves of steel. 1 RX internet, is just silly. MetroPCS has EVDO coverage in my area, and to have a phone that only recognizes 1Rx is plain dumb. The Java Browser is no better. It does not even recognize most WAP websites. And forget downloading anything to the phone, it just does not recognize anything. In closing, when you spend 200 bucks on a phone, you expect more than what you would normally get from a 50 dollar phone, unfortunately MetroPCS has fallen very short of the curve on this one.

    MetroPCS best phone

    I got this about a month ago after playing with my friends. So I knew what I was in for as far as everything about the phone goes. After owning it for a while I had notice that the battery life is kind of limited, but is no problem for the person that takes their charger around where ever they go and can leach off a little power to charge the battery every now and then. Pros: QWERTY MP3 Player 1.3MP Camera MetroPCS's unlimited service, including AIM and WLM (Formally MSN Messenger) (if included with your plan.) Loud spearker Quality and volume is good for a cell phone Cons: Of course the battery life could be better this is true for anything that uses batteries You cannot play MP3's and text at the same time (though your song will resume if you clear out of the text or reply) Your required to have a microSD card to use the MP3 player Camera Quality is not great but decent for a cellphone. With the growing support for cellphones and the 3GP Video codec, its a wonder why they were unable to include video playback and/or recording. Overall I am not disappointed with this phone if you like to text and IM on the move this would be a great phone for you.

    Got this phone a few months back. Works great, signal is good anywhere in the Metro area, no problems with dropped calls. Customer service is horrible, can't get through to them unless you say you are activating a phone. I wanted to keep my active number and when I called to set up the phone, they said I had to go to a MetroPCS store and have them activate it. I did that, the people at the store told me to call and then when it was set up, go back to store and have them switch numbers. I called, set it up, went back to the store, they told me they couldn't switch it, I had to do that at time of set up. They said there was nothing they could do, so I lost my number. Besides all the hassle, I like the $50 plan, can check my e-mail, facebook etc....I like the GPS, used it a few times...it's great

    people that talk bout cameras n internet speed come on really i mean when you get a phone you use it to call people and text not for a everyday camera n internet useage n games all day its just there for something important like a once in a life time moment or whatever but just use a computer and buy a camera how ever i do agree with the service it does suck but works when your outdoors and away from home but when you are home come on use a house phone be realistic if you want a phone that can cook you a dinner go make your own or go with over priced verison phones

    I tried, had a friend who is great with tech stuff try, had a member of best buy mobile try and I could never get pics, ring tones or music on the phone or card (we tried the card in another phone and it worked fine). Best buy told me metro pcs needs to work this problem out. After trying 2 new phones I gave up and got an iphone (Im counting minutes now, but features are out of this world!)

    great fone, of course, for those who dont know, you have to put the memory card into the fone and fomat it, then you can put your music, ring tones, pics, what have you on the memory card. Metropcs is the best service i have delt with, i bet the other fone companies are praying they dont go nation wide, cause then they will have to bring their prices and services inline with metro's lol

    The phone's the battery life could go for some improvements but overall its a great phone. The phones price is exspensive "yes" but the price for the phone is high because MetroPCS is prepaid , there's no contract, first month free*, one flat rate fee, and there's no activation fee*, If you think about it this way its a great Company and a great deal!

    this phone is great if you dont want to have to worry about a plan you just pay as you go. This phone has very many features. I like the full keyboard it helps me text really fast. What i did not like about it was it is very expensive.

    Excellent for texting

    After spending hours trying to say Hi on a regular keyboard, the slide keyboard is a delight. I can text several groups (up to 10 in a group) at once. A must for anyone who has to communicate frequently by texting.
