T-Mobile to shut down Metro PCS' CDMA network in Las Vegas and New England
T-Mobile is reminding MetroPCS customers in those regions to update to a new phone before June 30th. This new handset needs to support T-Mobile's HSPA+/LTE 4G service. The good news is that T-Mobile will provide discounts on these phones to those who need to switch. You can always saunter into your local MetroPCSstore and see if you are eligible for a discount.
If you're a MetroPCS customer in the New England or Las Vegas area, you can trade in your LG Connect for a $99 credit allowing you to score an LG Optimus F6 for free. Those with the LG Motion will get a $49 instant credit, allowing them to grab for free, the LG Exhibit. And if you're totin' the Huawei Verge or the Samsung Admire, you can trade either for the Samsung Freeform M or the Huawei Valiant at no cost.
July 1st will be here before you know it, so if you are affected by the closing of the MetroPCS CDMA pipeline in your area, you might want to grab your new phone now.
