    Well haven't heard much about MetroPCS, but they are coming to Dallas shortly and the store I work at will become a MetroPCS dealer as well. The question I have is, what are some strong selling points? Pros and Cons? and out of the list of phones that they carry, which are going to be the hot sellers? Any replys are appreciated.

    Alright, how is the reception? Is there anything you don't like about MetroPCS, or are you just overall satisfied with them? and last thing, out of the phone list, which ones are the best selling?
    Thanks again!

    The reception is OK if you stay near town also idk if u can roam but thatd be nice. I was very satisfied(i moved they didnt have good reception @ new house). The Nokia's usually sell the best b\c they get good reception. I'd recommend the Nokia 6255i or Nokia 6235 or Motorola V266

    Yea, I haven't had a chance to check out its overall reception yet, I'm just about to start selling it. I have a lot of close friends and family members on a ready to buy list. Now since it is just Metro they mostly are wanting them for their children and because they don't travel or call long distance much. Now they have authorized 400 licenses so far(which are all already taken, I was very lucky to get one) and come around about 2 more months, they will be authorizing more.

    Well, the downfall to Metro PCS is this...........

    • They do not offer full web browsing like Cingular, T-Mobile, etc.
    • your bill is due on the numerical date of the month that you activate service..... so if you activate on the 24th then it will be due on the 24th of each month
    • if you don't pay your bill by the due date, your service is suspended until you pay the bill.
    • As an example..... say your bill is due on the 1st & you're not able to pay it until the 14th..... you are still going to be charged the same monthly fee even though you were only able to use the phone 2 weeks out of that month
    • their phones are outdated & it takes them forever & a day to come out with new phones
    • the service in Dallas will suck at least for about 6 months until they are able to put up a good # of cell towers


    The knowledge I have of Metro PCS comes from reliable sources & so that is how I developed my opinion of them.

    Well actually metroPCS gives you a 5 day grace period after the due date. I know it isn't anything like T-Mobile's, Cingular's, etc. but what do you expect, its no contract.

    Ummm..... unless things have changed since I was a C.S.R. for them..... there is no grace period. If a payment is not made on the account by the due date, then the account is automatically suspended as of 2:00am the day after the bill is due. C.S.R.'s were instructed not to turn phones back on under any circumstances unless directed to by a supervisor.
