MetroPCS annonces new "simpler" unlimited 4G plan for $60

MetroPCS annonces new
Even though pre-paid carrier MetroPCS is in the midst of a merger with T-Mobile, which could close as soon as next quarter, the nation's fifth largest carrier still found time to make its 4G LTE calling plans "simpler". The company now offers three tiers of service, starting with $40 a month followed by $50 monthly, and $60 per month. All three plans offer unlimited talk and text. Where the difference comes in is with the amount of 4G data each of the three plans comes with.

The $40 plan lets you use 500MB of 4G data a month after which you are throttled. Pay $50 a month and you will receive the same unlimited talk and text plus 2.5GB of 4G data for the month. Exceed that total and your data speed is reduced. MetroPCS does have an unlimited 4G data package for $60 a month and that includes unlimited talk, text and 4G data.

MetroPCS, like other pre-paid carriers, has worked hard to bring popular handsets to its customers, such as the Samsung Galaxy S III which can be purchased sans contract for $499.99. Other Android phones are available from manufacturers like ZTE, Huawei and LG.

If Metro PCS was able to carry any flagship phones (such as Galaxy S3 they have now) 6 months earlier, I wouldn't have bound to a 2-year contract with other carrier now. Or if any unlocked GSM phone can work on their network would be awesome too!

off topic but straight talk can work for you, just order a sim and go

I wouldint get straight talk they have data limit and its 3g they told me straight up over the phone they cap your internet/streaming so i would just recommend you to get metro 3g or 4g if you can $60 for unlimited 4g
