Pretty much. And plus, they're about to get their first touchscreen phone soon. And I guess $349.99 isn't that expensive since people will be getting unlimited whatever. Guess prepaid is the way to go during this recession.

Yeah thats what it is boiling down to. The economy will take forever to start getting better. Im wanting another job but cant find one im happy i have one but i need more money. They should give one million dollars to every tax payer instead of bailing out the big companies. Just imagine hoe much better it wuld be. People could retire and make jobs for the next generation no more foreclosures it would be perfect. To bad nothing like that would happen.

..you do know that if they gave every tax payer $1 million the country would be beyond broke, right? Inflation would shoot through the roof, and the only way we could stop the downward spiral is to turn into a communistic country and ration everything, from money to goods.

attsucks, you are blatantly stupid. You might as well have opened up your statement saying, "Me got 500 on my SATs score," or "VZW FTW< BB STORM OWNAGES ROLFAMLKJSDL:KFJSL:DFJKSL:DKJL:K!" I don't think you understand anything about anything, let alone economic cycles, and basic theories of economics. More money for everyone, means everything gets more expensive. MetroPCS is not a real competitor in the cellular market, but they hope that offering an unlimited plan cheaper than others they can reach a decent marketshare to become profitable. This is good for the whole industry. If they succeed then all firms will have to lower to match or fear being driven out of the market. Sprint has already tried this and even they are losing market share to ATT (yes even att you rmoron) and VZW.
