MetroPCS starts its BYOD service today
MetroPCS, which was recently acquired by T-Mobile, hopes to expand the program to other cities in the future. Subscribers have the option of selecting from MetroPCS' $40, $50 and $60 monthly pre-paid plan. T-Mobile hopes to add 100 million POPs to MetroPCS' footprint over the next 6 quarters. Currently, T-Mobile offers its own pre-paid service under the T-Mobile and GoSmart names.
T-Mobile's ultimate goal is to get all MetroPCS' subscribers to migrate to its own service which will eventually take over MetroPCS' pipelines. But right this moment, you can move your device onto MetroPCS' network. Click on the sourcelink to see if your phone is eligible to be used with the plan.
