Refurbished means a product is retested to see what went wrong. It's tested more than a production line product to find out if something else might be weak and fail. Refurbished has nothing to do with "trash".

I've seen an ad for the S3 for $199.00 with a Verizon 2 year contract.

Ill still be very active in the Esteem forum only because I have SO MUCH stuff uploaded there so Ill have to maintain it. Plus I know the phone inside and out. I mean no reason to really "leave" per say. I guess a leecher could easily leave cause they just take take take and dont contribute.

Refurbished isn't just extra testing. Refurbished doesn't meant trash, however most refurbished phones have had issues reported, meaning people had problems with it therefore that is why they went through extra testing.

I still believe when somebody had an issue with a device, chances are you will too. I speak from experience. However, my friends hasn't had any problems with his refurb. Refurbished doesn't mean trash, just recycled. For the price difference is most cases, i would go new

I've seen better than that. On another carrier you can get it for only $99 with a 2 year contract. But who cares? With all of these carriers, you're committing yourself to a 2 year contact and you're paying much more per month than with Metro after taxes and fees are added. You do get faster LTE speeds, better reception in most cities, and far better customer service with the other carriers, but at a cost.

People in other carriers brag about speed test results yes they get better everything but for $55 I get to do the same things they do watch netflix youtube without buffering steam music so I'm not based on speed test results I based it in real life experiences

Exactly.

I was getting 7 Mbps downloads on 4G in one spot in LA, but the packet lag time was so bad that I actually got better performance in 3G streaming media.

Don't get me wrong, 4G is great, but as with most all benchmark results, numbers are just numbers and your mileage may vary.

Yeah its true. Apple Is attempting by all means to destroy Samsung because apple is losing big time. But they will mostly sue in terms of design so as far as that article , most of Samsung devices could be affected by it. ( tho I doubt GS3 is in it.....)

It's of no concern as that trial isn't gonna start until December and a judgment that would actually push the ban of these devices won't happen for months from that time.

The Galaxy S4 will be out before these Bans take effect if they were to happen at all.

Apple is trying to scare people away from samsung products with threats to have them banned immediately.

Nothing needs to be 10x better than an iPhone.

All it needs to be is Android.

I was told if we currently have this plan. Whenever we switch phones the plan is gonna stay. But most likely it'll still be available for the s3... that's if metro wants to make good business

Yes, Apple is trying to ban the entire "galaxy"lineup. The galaxy phones have been some of the most innovative phones on the market, and the only phones that compare to the iPhone in sales. That is why you see Apple going after Samsung way now than any other manufacturer. It had nothing to do with patents or looks, it has to do with Samsung being a threat a Apple's monopoly in the mobile

Apple did add the sgs3 in the suit. Don't see how that infringes on their patents but you know apple

Current customers who are on the $55 4G ultd plan will stay the same when you buy the s3 because it's simply an upgrade. Plan never chances even if the promo is over.

I work for Metro, on the East coast and there has been nothing Ive heard that states anything about an end date at all to this plan. They are trying to get people on 4G lte to free up cdma bands, so it they may keep it for a while

Yeah I work for metro. If you're referring to the s3, then no, it should be coming out around the next week depending which market you're in (L.A market here). But definitely the first week of October. Like trigger said, there is no word on the special 4G plan end date because metro is getting everyone to get on 4G so I'm pretty sure this plan will still be around when the S3 comes out. Think about it, SGS3 + $55 UNLTD 4G = Tons of $$$ saved on the long run comparing to other S3 plans on other carriers

I registered to all but confirm that Metro will be releasing the S3 on the 28th (this Friday). When specific markets may get it will vary I'm sure. I called customer service, wanting to confirm that corporate stores would have it. They gathered all of my information, wanted to know where I got that information, put me on hold for like 15 minutes, then the rep fumbled around with...

"I can't confirm that information. However, if you check the MetroPCS.com website on Friday, you'll be able to see if the phone is available or not."

Lol.

metro reps dont know jack. they're pretty much kept out of the loop like the rest of us.

metro doesnt announce the release dates for phones ever. we have to find out everything second hand. why they do this i really dont know.

Did you mention to them anything about Friday being the day its released, supposedly? Bc if you did, then it sounds like they wanted to sound smart with you, lol.

metro wont release a phone without the promos being aired and sent everywhere anyways with that being said a good source from howard forums that works deep within the umbrella corporation inside the comb said in some states they started to promote the s3 on some billboards, so its safe to assume not all states will start to get them at the same time for now no billboards or promos have been seen in florida so if it indeeds it lands somewhere the 28th i dont think it will be florida.
