processor a slight step down from initial announcement-- although not much difference...

not worth getting at any price.
You could always google the model number or look on engadget. The only reason why the phone acted like that was because it was I pre production model. This was way back in march so who knows how the phone performs at this exact moment.

If the s3 sells well metro may bring more high end phones to their service.

The reality is most people on Meropcs don't have the money to throw $500 or so at a phone. If they're gonna put these types of phones on metro they want people to actually buy them.

On this forum?

Way more people on metro have admires, Optimus ms, and indulges than connects and esteems in reality but many of the esteem owners will congregate here because of the dev community.

Hell I hope I'm wrong and people do put up the money and buy the s3 so metro will be encouraged to bring more high end devices here.

Well I agree with W.. In my school there are mostly metropcs phones. The main ones I've seen are the Admire and M. The esteem is in 3rd place.

The Esteem is a "high-end" phone mainly by Metro standards.

$379 is mid-range territory. $500-600+ is high-end.

In the wild I see more people come in to my store with Esteems as opposed to any other 4G Metro phone. I do hope they will buy S3's, and from me lol.

lol that is my situation to a T really. I am not a cell phone power user. I dont plan to game on my phone the major things I am wanting to do is....

1. web browsing
2. network/IT trouble shooting
3. Social Media (facebook)

I dont need a super fast phone for those things. I think the majority of people will agree... I will occasionally watch a movie or listen to music but once more we dont need a super high end processor for that.

So for them better that the in-between phones are coming after the s3, so as not to possibly undercut it....

That s3 will be feast or famine for Metro-- either everyone wants it or i can see rebate for it soon thereafter.

In any case, some model(s) should get nice rebates thereafter.

An even better idea than trying to bring more high end phones on is have a BYOD program like straighttalk and simplemobile.

I'm just thinking that metro is doing this as a test to see how well it sells and if it sells well then they'll start introducing more High end phones.

On another note, going with the topic of this thread, the LG Motion 4G for metro will have the ICS we're all dying for.

The LG Motion will have:

4G LTE
4.0 ICS
1.2 GHz dual-core processor
1 GB RAM
5GB internal memory
3.5 HVGA TFT display Corning Gorilla glass
5MP camera with LED flash
1.3 front face camera
1080p HD recording

So what do you guys think? This phone should be released next month. I was surprised that this little beast is only 3.5" screen I was pretty dissapointed with that but nonetheless the specs on this phone looks great. It might be priced around $149 without rebates. So that's another win there. Courtesy of your friendly dealer Gomez

So where is your store because If metro actually does still flash phones I would wait for the note 2 to come out and put it on metro.

My local metro stores won't do it.

Question: I've had the Optimus M for 15 months. At this point, ANY 4g phone is going to be light years better by comparison to this venerable dinosaur. But seeing as how my budget is about 300 bucks tops, what would you guys recommend?

I'm no fan of Huawei, FYI

Getting a shipment of lg motion 4g's this week. Coolpad Quattro is soon to follow after. I might just sell my connect and get a motion 4g. ICS and S4 SoC is quite the killer for 149. Btw, if a person buys two motion 4g's, the second one is eligible for a $50 MIR. Both must be activated on the same account. Metro also has a promotion staring the 23rd. $55 unlimted 4g. Not to entirely sure about the details though.

i zoomed in the pic on my pc looks like the deal has gotten better i believe it says $150 without rebate and then $99 with rebate but dont quote me but usually it says normal prices without rebate next to price after rebate and i dont see any number on there higher than $150 and the $99 price tag is seen largely next to the Lg motion so gotta be $150 with a $50 rebate

Edit: i read again what jrdroid said and according to him its $150 and if u buy a 2nd one then the 2nd one gets a rebate which is cool cuz for $150 what more can we ask for its a dual core phone with ics lol thats pretty good deal on its own.

Edit: i read again what jrdroid said and according to him its $150 and if u buy a 2nd one then the 2nd one gets a rebate which is cool cuz for $150 what more can we ask for its a dual core phone with ics lol thats pretty good deal on its own.
$150 is a good price regardless

Not really they are making it fair think about it people will most likely get a bigger screen those that don't care about specs heck they might even think the cool pad is better than the Motion just because it's bigger lol plus the new plan will sell too

But the coolpad looks more well built. As opposed to the motion, which looks kinda older. (BUT ISNT)

The Coolpad is not known here, it will take some time before people care about it. They are supposed to do a 5" screen next year for Metro, so Ive heard

All day with this quote. Everyone that comes in doesn't even look at the smaller android phones. Everyone thinks the lightray and esteem are the best because of how big it is.

I still disagree about the coolpad being for the less tech savvy consumer. Short of playing high end games couldn't it be argued both phones will run about the same? Looking at what the average consumer will do with the phone.

Given most you guys and gals are power users and do way more then the average consumers does.

I think those that know phones wont care yet. Its the ones who have no clue that will say oh give me that. I try to talk people into a Connect for 100$ more all day long. They still go with a Activa
