MetroPCS shows some Finesse

MetroPCS shows some Finesse
MetroPCS has been playing catch-up with their phone line up, initially by offering their first smartphone, and now a touchscreen phone with a full HTML browser. It has a 3.2 inch WQVGA display, a virtual QWERTY keyboard, and a 2MP camera with video capture so you can record the shock on your friends' faces when you tell them that this cool phone came from MetroPCS. Other features include a widget based UI (we guess it is TouchWiz) that allows for quick drag and touch opening of applications, MP3 music player, Stereo Bluetooth and 150MB in memory that can be expanded by using the microSD slot. The Samsung Finesse costs $349 with shipping expected in 2 to 3 weeks. Similar to Alltel with their identical Delve phone, MetroPCs is offering the Mission Impossible trilogy on a microSD card for free while supplies last, to those who buy the Finesse and activate it on their network. With all of this new cool phones offered by the carrier, a whole new breed of fanboy might be born.

Wow, MetroPCS and Cricket have been stepping their game up with their phone line up. First Cricket gets the Motorola Evoke QA4 touchscreen and now MetroPCS is obtaining the Samsung Finesse. Wow, prepaid wireless phone carriers are really doing their best to get some new customers, but look at that price tag. Sure, people are going to shell out $350 for it since it's no contract, but I know I won't.

Cricket is very much prepaid. If a carrier offers no contracts, then it's a prepaid carrier.

350 bucks for a phone AND the mission impossible movies? This is a must buy! (sarcasm, kids) Or I could just download and put on my Curve.

There are different kinds of prepaid cell phone carriers. And while most people don't know it, Cricket does have traditional prepaid plans with $1 Daily Access fee for unlimited talk. Also, Tracfone and Virgin Mobile also have plans where they mimick traditional monthly plans, but without the contract. So, yes, Cricket is still prepaid. Cause as it stands, the definition of a prepaid carrier is a carrier that offers serivce with NO CONTRACT.
