Hmm, ok I have been lurking here for a bit now trying to understand some of what is being said, but as for the service of MetroPcs I can speak. I live in the DFW area of Texas and I get 3g here, as for phone service my Bro-in-law has Sprint when we go out of town foe family reunions or for funerals he keeps losing service, my wife and I on the other hand do not, out of town here in Texas can really be out in the sticks.
Just my thoughts on the service of MetroPcs.
Now as to the Phone I love it and am totaly facinated with it, but I know nothing about these marvels of technology. I am trying to understand, but am lost as to some terms such as Rooting?
