No, not if you are buying a phone from Metro. The website says new account, but you just buy the phone, then you can activate it on your current account. I did that with my wife's Optimus M+.

I'm sure there are some that will say I'm being a picky bast**d and maybe so but there's a couple things about WF that's not thrilling me. Almost to the PO point but not quite.

I called them when I was looking at the Motion. You'll recall time was critical then as the Avid had just come out, like the Spirit now there was NO hands on info, I wanted to wait til Christmas in case there was an after Christmas sale BUT I still needed hooked up no matter how it went BY 1/3 when the $55 deal ended. Now, get a Wirefly with a contract and you get the 2 day shipping. The non-contract phones get the turtle stagecoach from Virginia. Not to mention they were wembly wombly on when the turtles could get it done. If they get their kick in for your contract then they'll stroke you, if you're a piddly no-contract customer you'll get your phone when you get it.

At 9 AM today I emailed their customer service and asked about the Spirit, when, how much? very simple. I get a canned BS nothing response back. I reply that I'd ask 3 simple questions that I'd like answers to. They emailed back for me to contact sales. (They are in-fricken-capable of forwarding a dang email for their company to get more sales?) So I also emailed Sales. Still have not heard a word. Sure I could CALL Sales but that's not the point. If they can't dive into the 20th damn century and answer an email to sell some product then to heck with them.

Maybe I'll see if they are on Faceplant and give them a nice friendly, polite kick in the head there.

$70 MIR on first day?
Does anyone else remember the days when MIR's only appeared on aging products to clear inventories?

I wonder if this is banking on a lot of people being too lazy about sending in the MIR...

You should have posted to Metros FB FROM the counter at the stores who had no clue and told them you'd done so.

They're too stupid to be a Dealer if they're clueless Now on the Spirit or tell their employees to say that.

No diss to you Sammy but I call BS on the Metro employee who would say that *and leave it at that*.

I don't care if you're selling $20 mil Gulfstream G-4s or watermelons or cellphones. You should know about what the heck you're selling.

It would take Any cellphone employee just a couple hours a week HERE to be an exceptionally aware and informed employee for their company.

For that minimal amount of effort, "I don't get paid enough" isn't a satisfactory answer.

So basically this phone is an upgraded LG Connect with ICS and and a bigger screen...not bad..not to mention a better ppi 245 vs 233 on the Connect..hmm might be an interesting buy, but I'm also dying for the S3 which has right now and probably continue to have a larger development community..I just need it to go on sale for $399 again

I own it. Picked it up yesterday from a Corporate store.
Great phone. Boots fast, not anywhere near the nuisance of bloat-ware my Galaxy S II came with on Sprint. No annoying gingles when you boot or shut off either. Boot time is about 10 second faster than my Samsung. As it was explained to me, it's a Motion underneath the hood, just a bigger screen and bigger battery. LTE in my neighborhood reached 5Mbit/sec which blew my mind. It feels substantial in the hand, the screen is actually sharper looking than the AMOLED of the S II; no mosquito effect. Apps feel quicker on the "fresh" load. Overall responsiveness is exceptionally good. LG did this phone right and Metro was really smart getting it on-board like they did.

Turning off 4G when I don't need it - and Wifi - this phones looks like it will surpass my S II while utilizing Juice Defender and internal LG power saver (I assume that is similar to what the Optimus G has in it..). I expect to get nearly 2 days between charges on light to moderate use.

Call quality is fantastic. Speakers seem louder to me than the S II.
Overall build quality, fit & finish is exceptional!

It's still early but I'm on the verge of telling everyone:
"can't recommend this phone enough", especially with Metro's
super affordable plans.

Great phone. Boots fast, not anywhere near the nuisance of bloat-ware my Galaxy S II came with on Sprint. No annoying gingles when you boot or shut off either. Boot time is about 10 second faster than my Samsung. As it was explained to me, it's a Motion underneath the hood, just a bigger screen and bigger battery. LTE in my neighborhood reached 5Mbit/sec which blew my mind. It feels substantial in the hand, the screen is actually sharper looking than the AMOLED of the S II; no mosquito effect. Apps feel quicker on the "fresh" load. Overall responsiveness is exceptionally good. LG did this phone right and Metro was really smart getting it on-board like they did.

Turning off 4G when I don't need it - and Wifi - this phones looks like it will surpass my S II while utilizing Juice Defender and internal LG power saver (I assume that is similar to what the Optimus G has in it..). I expect to get nearly 2 days between charges on light to moderate use.

Call quality is fantastic. Speakers seem louder to me than the S II.
Overall build quality, fit & finish is exceptional!

It's still early but I'm on the verge of telling everyone:
"can't recommend this phone enough", especially with Metro's
super affordable plans.
Is the Music Player better than the one on the Motion?

The one on the Motion is a bit weak, but I've been using "PowerAmp" which is a Music Player with a pre-amp, 10 band EQ and you can set and assign different pre-amp and EQ settings for every song in your MP3 library which is a nice option but can be time consuming.

Something to do as you listen to your MP3 library if you don't like the sound quality of a certain song, you can change the settings and assign them to that or any other song.

Glad to haer the screen res rocks on the Spirit. I also heard that there is wireless HDMI output - any truth to that?

Thanks. It sounds like I'll be picking one up soon since Wirefly didn't come in at an attractive price point so I'll just go with Metro and the MIR, but I'm going to wait a month to see if the S-3 gets discounted with the S-4 due in April.

The S-3 is $399.00 on Wirefly.

The S-4 drops in April, so you might see the S-3 at $300.00 again on Wirefly like it was for a short time last year, but that's speculation on my part.

The last date to buy the Spirit and to also get the MIR is March 3rd, so I might wait another month before buying the Spirit to see if the S-3 gets discounted.

The test was a bad one he used quadrant and there's no way those phones are anywhere near the S3.

Let's see any of those phones try to beat these scores on antutu

I ignore built-in music players; I primarily use GoneMad. I own doubletwist too but GoneMad is my favorite.

Don't know about wireless HDMI...haven't looked into it...and honestly, I wouldn't use it anyway.

The S3 is a powerful phone but not worth the dough IMHO.
$299?...maybe...
Had I stayed with Sprint I would have opted for the Optimus G on my upgrade date but I refuse to pay for these 80+ dollar a month plans anymore, from anyone. To me it's tossing money down the drain..

The Spirit is a solid phone on a plan that is sanely priced!
Meets my needs and surpasses my expectations from a device standpoint.

Hate to admit it, but software wise the spirit is wayyy smoother. Right out ot the box. Samsung needs to step up their touchwiz. And btw i have almost all the metropcs 4g phone starting with the esteem so I know what I'm talking about

GPU gives motion a 3000 point advantage because of screen size and resolution

its due to the smaller screen, you use the same gpu but push out less than an eighth the amount of pixels

LG Spirit 4G
Current Rating:
Rate this Phone:

The LG Spirit is a mid-end device with a bit of a stronger punch. The device doesn't do bad with a 4.5-inch screen, Android 4.0 and a 1.2 GHz processor. All for $200 after a $70 mail-in rebate (no contract) from Metro PCS. Not a bad deal if you... Read More
