Switched from Verizon, couldn't be happier!By Forrest Smith, posted: Feb 12I decided to pay my own cellphone bill (since I turned 18) I live in central mass and commute to college in Boston, I went from Verizon to virgin mobile (service was very spotty, and would lose service in car and movie theaters) and had nooo service at all in my apartment since it's a basement floor. It was so stressing. So I went to Metro during Thanksgiving time, and purchased the Admire. I paid a total of like $150 for phone and plan but boy was it worth it! In this apartment I have the same service as I did with Verizon, 1Bar to 0 bars. Sometimes I would roam but that's okay since I don't talk much. Once I walk out of this apartment, I get 3 to 4 bars (max is 4) and I have never lost service anywhere at all! If I have like one bar or none in some areas I can still make calls and texts! Just because you never always have full service 24/7 doesn't mean it's a bad company. I also have family in south Jersey & Delaware and I figured out in Jersey Metro has a much stronger coverage. I always have 3 bars or 4. never lower. It seems in Massachusetts it jumps but that's okay :) People who complain about customer service be nice and patient to them and they'll be nice back! I have never had a problem with them! But in reality you should just find time to go to a damn store! Overall great company. I love the no contract deal too! If you complain about the service also you should've of looked at the coverage map, see all the locations you travel to, and if there's like no service at all in some places you go, DON'T SIGN UP FOR METRO! Period. I want to go 4G soon and get the Attain, sick of slow internet speeds Xb

Never had any problems until recently !!By Nadeem Habib, posted: Feb 12I live in Miami Florida and I am facing issues with call drops and not receiving text msges and calls for the last two days. I did inquire from close by Metro Pcs agencies and they also confirmed customers are facing some issues some phone are working and some are not. Maybe Metro is working on network or towers. I had a T-Mobile before and other different sister services, but Metro is the best with the exception of these few days started from February 23, 2012. I hope they take care of current Metro network issues asap. T-Mobile is also providing non contract 50 dollars package but I guarantee you won't know the service or multimedia text msges until and unless you join that service.

Been with Metro for years nowBy Jacqueline Yekmalian, posted: Feb 12While I have been with Metro pcs for years now. I just bought my first android phone from a blackberry curve. I purchased the LG Esteem. I love it. My only compliant is battery dies quickly. Phone is lighting fast for internet and email. I have been happy with Metro. Rarely drop calls, good reception. Dont call with questions go to an acutal store. I find the staff at stores are more educated about product then the call in center. No Contract and one price for service with no surprises at the end of the month is great.

DON'T BOTHER!!By Lynn Nguyen, posted: Feb 12 - updated: Feb 12Feb 15 I came into MetroPcs authorized retailer (7550 Tampa Ave. Unit C. Reseda, CA 91335) to open an account. Karina assured me that the Samsung Admire would come in the next day which is why I opened the account bc I could exchange the Huawei (if use <60min w/in 7days) the next day. This number is used as my business line so I thought it was ok not using it for a day. I called Feb 16 to ask if they had it, Rosa said they wouldn’t get it until Sunday (2/19). This was unacceptable. I went to another MetroPCS, which happened to be an authorized retailer who had an Admire & was told I couldn’t exchange it bc the store had a different owner. I asked if my number could be transfer to this store since it’s the same corporation, Rosa said no b/c of diff store owner & if I did that I would lose my # that I’ve had for 8yrs. This became frustrating—bc in addition to the problem calling the Tampa store was nearly impossible as Rosa never picked up! I had to call 13 times (according to my phone log) before she picked up! I called Metro customer service (888-metro8) and spoke with a manager, Ryan ID#60890, who told me to head into the corporate store on 9070 Van Nuys. Panorama City, CA 91402 (the ONLY corporate store w/in a 15mi radius of my house) and they would exchange my phone as long as it was in stores. I come into the corporate store and spoke with the supervisor (I did not get his name) who told me that he did not get a call from his headquarters in Texas and therefore couldn’t exchange my phone bc it wasn’t purchased in that store. I don’t understand this! I was already frustrated with the whole ordeal and then I come into the corporate store, waited 45mins, was #2 in line (according to the monitor) when they called the lady in #4 to go up which I let go even though #1 made a big issue, and then was rejected help. The supervisor didn’t even look apologetic! He didn’t even offer a solution. I asked if there was a number I could call or speak to a manager and was told there wasn’t one in. I gave the supervisor the number of the Tampa store and told him I spoke with Rosa today. He went into the back to make a 15min call to “try and resolve the problem.” He came back and said he left a message for Rosa, which I don’t believe because I’ve called that store all day and there was no answering machine, that store’s number will give you a dead-tone after a few rings. Not only that but I felt animosity towards his comment about my use of the Metro line as a business line. He said that we shouldn’t be using the metro plan as a business line, which is what metro discourages to begin with. I said that it was irrelevant of how we are using our phone but that the issue was that we were assure an exchange by Ryan and the store wasn’t honoring that! While he’s “trying to call the Tampa store” I’m calling Metro’s customer service again to get connected with Ryan. I spoke with Ann ID#905003, whom I thought was a manager because that’s what I asked for but she finally admits that she’s only a supervisor and that her manager wasn’t available at the moment. I ask Ann to connect me to Ryan and she told me she couldn’t do that. I asked why? And she said because Ryan was at another call center. I don’t understand, what is the point of giving an ID# if I can’t ever reach that person again. I told her I was willing to wait to speak with her manager. She puts me on hold for 18mins (according to my cell phone log) only to come back and said that it would be a few hours before he couldn’t come to the phone. This behavior was very suspicious! That and the fact that it was so noisy in her background that she barely could hear me—like there was a party going on. I had to yell into the phone so she could hear me. This problem was becoming ridiculous. Ann says all she could do was take my information, escalate the problem to the next level in hopes of resolving the issue, and then call me back within 24hr. I asked Ann how she would escalate the problem and she replied, “email.” I was shocked at this method! I wanted results not to be pushed aside. (An email can be easily neglected since it is not a direct approach). Overall, my experience with MetroPCS is shockingly atrocious: everyone was so rude, unhelpful, and unconcerned about my (customer) happiness. I feel as if MetroPCS is one corporation with multiple sectors, yet each sector (authorized retailer, customer service, & corporate store) is acting as independently of each other. That lack of customer service in all sectors of Metro is appalling. If I had known this is how Metro values their customers I wouldn’t have bothered with them. It is frustrating to talk to 3 different stores, 6 different people (most were managers and supers) and not get a resolution! The attitudes among all the people I’ve encountered in this ordeal can be summarized as rude, unhelpful, and unscathed by my problem. No one made an attempt to help me! No one offered me any assistance nor any solution. There is no customer appreciation! There is no corporate structure! There is no customer service! CONCLUSION: DON'T BOTHER WITH METRO PCS, they may be cheap but they're cheap for a reason. In the next few years, they'll probably be brought out by AT&T or at least I pray they will b/c this is such a WORTHLESS company! No wonder why they're so small!

total piece of crapBy Phraze Tu Amaze, posted: Feb 12Was on a really important call. The call dropped and I had no bars, and as soon as it dropped the phone had 4 - 5 bars.. I got so mad I finally threw my lg optimus at the wall.. Now im looking to find another provider.. metro-pcs is awful when making important calls or emergency ones.. total garbage i dont even know if its worth getting the lg esteem... just use a ipod touch and a wifi connection like the one guy said here... The reality is the service doesnt work when you NEED IT TO!.

decent companyBy Coreen Cross, posted: Feb 12i switched to metro pcs about a year ago. Where i live i have no problem getting service sometime i get more then my bf's verison phone. There is no 3g which sucks but 4g is pretty much like having 3g. I had no problem with my bill ever. 50 every month end of story so im not sure how everyone else got charged a bunch of random charges... when when my son gets ahold of my phone and tried to download apps it wont let him. The only down fall i find is that sometimes it is a bit slow trying to get on internet. over all... for $50 ill stick with it.

I was very happy with metro, good customer service, and good connections, meaning no dropped calls.By Inlightwithlove, posted: Jan 12I am now paying three times as much for what I had with metro with sprint and have dropped calls, phone frezzing up, takes for ever for a connection when calling someone. Metro was good in all these areas except they did not have the Iphone so I switched. I regret it now.

A Bargain in San FranciscoBy santhem, posted: Jan 12The Good: Flat Rate $50/month for Android phone for voice, texting, and data, no termination or reactivation fees. The Bad: Lack of Coverage, Slow Network, Horrible Customer Service, pay full price of phone upfront. I'm really quite happy with my $100 (at the time) Samsung Admire phone. When I got it, it had the latest Android OS, the touch screen is responsive, and almost all apps work with it. Since I rarely leave the Greater SF Bay Area where coverage is good, it works to me. Yes, customer service is weak. One isn't going to get everything for this kind of price. I rarely need customer service in practice, though. By comparison, an unlimited voice and text plan with the *minimum* 2Gb/month data plan for a smartphone at Verison will cost $119.99 per month. Yes, you will not get the same kind of service one gets from Verizon for half the price. Not only that, but you are locked into a plan. With MetroPCS one can stop and restart at any time with no financial penalty. This service is not for everyone, but if you want inexpensive fixed rates with no commitment, and you live in an area where it has good network service, then it is a reasonable option.
