Talked to another person on Metro's site and again was misinformed :
lee: Thank you for contacting Metro PCS, my name is Lee, how may I assist you today?
you: Hello, I have a question. If I buy a Nexus S and have it flashed to Metro, will I get 4g service?
lee: yes, that is possible
you: Everywhere I have looked says no. Do you know who it's possible? Because the phone has uses Wimax and does not have LTE.
lee: Did you already visit a metro store?
you: No, I don't have the phone yet. I am thinking of buying it but don't want to if the 4g won't work.
lee: May I have your zip code in order to verify 4g coverage, please?
lee: thank you
lee: one moment, plese
lee: yes, you have the best 4g coverage
you: I know I have 4g coverage. My only question is how would the phone get 4g reception being that it uses Wimax and not LTE?
lee: yes, you will have the 4g reception.
you: So metro is compatible with Wimax?
lee: yes, correct.
