More about MetroPCS

Metro PCS is a prepaid no contract carrier that runs off the T-Mobile 4G LTE network. Metro PCS is compatible with all unlocked GSM devices and even offers its own branded phones from companies such as LG and Samsung. However, Metro PCS does not offer payment plans for phones. Metro PCS has various plans starting with no data only talk/text and ending with a truly unlimited data plan. These plans can be turned into family plans with up to 5 lines.

Metro PCS has plans for all users. The talk and text only plan includes unlimited talk, text and picture messaging. This plan is only compatible with 3G phones. If a customer has a 4G LTE smartphone, they will need to check out the Unlimited plans that include data. Once a user reaches their allotted data allowance for the month, Metro PCS will slow data speeds and instead of charging overages.

Metro PCS offers bring your own plans, and plans that require users to purchase a device from their company. If customers are bringing their own devices, the device must have previously worked on AT&T, T-Mobile, or some sort of GSM network. As long as the device has been paid in full and is unlocked, GSM phones will work on Metro PCS.

The only downside to Metro PCS? The company doesn't accept CDMA devices on its network. If a potential customer switches to Metro and has a CDMA device, they will need to purchase a new, GSM-capable phone. Purchasing a new device through Metro PCS can be expensive, since payment plans aren't available for MetroPCS devices.

Fast Facts: Metro PCS

iPhone SE

MetroPCS is a long-standing MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) that runs on T-Mobile's 4G LTE network. MetroPCS merged with T-Mobile in 2012. 

  • Network: MetroPCS runs on T-Mobile's 4G LTE network. For 4G LTE, the carrier uses bands 4 and 12. These bands use the frequencies 1900, 1700 def, 700a. For phones using 2G or 3G network technology, the Metro PCS network primarily uses the 1900 MHz frequency.
  • Coverage: MetroPCS runs on T-Mobile's network, consistently ranked #3 in national coverage
  • Where to Buy: Metro PCS has thousands of retail stores nationwide. Since you'll be unable to purchase your plan and phone online, finding a local retailer is a must. 
  • Bring Your Own Phone to MetroPCS: MetroPCS allows you to bring your own unlocked GSM (T-Mobile or AT&T) phone along with you. To check phone eligibility with Metro, go here
  • Tethering: Customers on Metro's unlimited plan can use their phones as hot spots.

Fact: You can enjoy the same great coverage as T-Mobile on MetroPCS, as it runs on the same network.
