IMHO no guarantee it won't delay into next year, as with other previous models.
This is what's so disappointing about being with Metro-- we get the phone much, much later...and castrated.

With this plethora of phones, Metro should've tried for the same model specs on the S3, as a competing mega carrier...in order to get the phone right away...even if it means customers would pay more.
And please don't say few Metro customers would...I would...as well as many better paying postpaid competitors' customers(no contract, no throttle/cap, lower monthly-- a no-brainer)...there'd be plenty of other choices for the ones that wouldn't

notice these people post info yet they wont share links nor tell u how this info has been confirmed. i tell u could be mean and say what im thinking about ill leave it like that cuz i know for sure metro isnt going to release 2 phones in the same month that will over shadow one over the other. 2nd metro leaves the best for last they not going to release their most powerful most advanced product first then release their mid range phones after.

I wont leave to get a slightly better phone only to get the S3 later on. I will wait and just get the S3.

I am VERY happy with my phone as most should be.

Btw the price is going to average $450, and the plan is going to be the same. Also by what I hear the phone will not be watered down. I could be wrong though.

no disrespect to anyone, but its called being spoiled, I'm thankful for what i get. I'm old enough to remember crappy beepers and flip phones so big they pull your pants down putting them in your pocket. When I was a teen "yes, I'm doing the I remember when I was a kid thing" the only people that could even get a cellphone had to have perfect credit and be upper middle class.

As for devices that'll take advantage of the 4G goodness, MetroPCS says that we can expect to see either six or seven new LTE handsets by year's end, each which will be priced between $99 and $149.
I wonder how Metro PCS is going to find a way to price the Samsung Galaxy SIII "between $99 and $149".

yep my first cellphone with a real carrier was with voicestream too. and then they went over to tmobile, and I was on the phone with customer service more then I used the phone for anything else. and then this great low cost, no contract company came out called Metro pcs. Before metro and voicestream I use to get those crappy grey brick flip phones that you had to call on the cell phone and put in a card number to get time. god i hated that.

my mom does texting, Shes some what of a nanny for my younger cousins and all they do is texting, so she was forced to learn how.

Wow you had a Razr that was like a rich person phone to me haha. I couldn't afford those. I always got the free phones they'd give when you resigned your soul to them.

I remember have REAL ringtones back in 2002 WAY before you could put them on a phone. It was the FIRST phone modding I ever did. You HAD to have a USB cable for the phone which was UNHEARD of. hahaha. I remember a site called cell phone hacks that was popular back in the day that gave me the info and it would give out all the unlock codes and hidden menu codes. Ahhh the good ole days.

I never had that issue.. maybe take the pillow off your face before making a call. lol Joking with you. Maybe you don't hold the phone in the right position, or you have your hand over the mic. Remember the mic hole is on the bottom of the phone, if you hold the phone from the bottom it will block it.

I'll likely end up with a stepping stone...i ain't risking having to wait a half year(imo)...
the wait on the Esteem was bad enough...
