It's a brochure. The box would say Metropcs and all the logos would be on the bottom part.

Lol about that even though disappointing wouldn't it be funny, if me thinking 17 was Friday instead of Wednesday is the actual release date? Well I will still take the slap if it isnt out tomorrow.

Cool

some may call it bad marketing... BUT if samsung were this beautiful women, technically we're all fighter over her. and the woman would love every minute of it. This is exactly what they want. Oct has 31 days how hard is it for samsung/metro to just pick a day. NO. They know these forums exist and they check it just as often as anyone else here, to see the "need" we have to justify their decision to add metro to their "ego." It gives us time for "thirst" dudes, LIKE ME, that buy accessories for these phantom dates.

If you have low expectations (ie. Nov release) then anything before would would be a pleasant bonus.

I believe it is bad business to treat customers this way. Especially customers who are waiting to buy your highest-end device. We probably represent the demographic with the deepest pockets. It's not about the website teaser, even though "coming soon" advertisements USUALLY are only used until a DATE has been set(most of the time several months before release, not during the actual month). It's about the fact that corporate employees are giving dates. Dealers to the side, corporate employees are direct representatives of the company. So when I go into a corporate store and am told a specific date, I PLAN to have my money ready on that date. I have heard dates from corporate stores as well as customer service phone reps and if MetroPCS is coaching their staff to create false hope and smoke and mirrors, THAT IS BAD BUSINESS and the kind of practices that frustrate your customer base. If employees are giving out dates without permission, they should be dealt with. That obviously isn't happening because I know I'm not the only person who has been given these dates and it even happened to me twice by 2 forms of the service. This is what infuriates me, not a website photo slide. And even if going by the slide, as a billion dollar company a date should have been set ages ago before the site even made mention of the phone. That's the part that is unprofessional and VERY different from the practice of the carriers that are FAR ahead of MetroPCS in the market.

Hi the galaxy s3 is the exact same device as other carriers in us only difference is they have the metro logo on the back so no worries. And is it only me or others also thinks note is just not a Phone

metropcs never giving out specific dates for their phone releases is not good practice. why they do this i have no idea.

with that said, metroPCS has not given out an official specific date for when this phone was to be released. their website says it will be released this month so if it comes out on holloween day metro kept their promise of releasing the phone this month. if it comes out later than that then people have legit reason to be angry.

all these dates have been given out by people who dont know anything. everyone is guessing, and metro should do something about their employees guessing and for a while they did as i heard some people went to stores asking about this phone and were told by reps they couldnt say anything about it. so you have people breaking the rules spewing dates not knowing jack. we've all been swept away by RUMORS when the only thing we've actually been promised by metro themselves is the phone coming out in october.

dont believe the hype. there are 14 days left in the month.

chill out.

It wont be watered down. It is the same exact phone as every other carrier. It will just have MetroPCS's stock ROM and/or bloatware.

Samsung is the one first off that told metro they need to carry the phone so it's safe to say that Samsung would be the one that decides the time frame it can be released. Besides, if you are so mad because you actually believe what these morons that work at metro pcs are telling you, then leave. Walk away and go buy the s3 from tmobile or Ebay and go somewhere else. It's that simple. Cause whining about metro employees sucking, which is totally unheard of by the way, is only "infuriating" one person and that's you. Stress is a killer so I'll keep you in my thoughts that you find peace cause if you get this "infuriated" over a phone and a release date and garbage employees, then i would hate to see what your anger looks like when it comes to real world and life issues. I hope you get better and if you need someone to talk to, don't hesitate.


For everyone else.
I just don't understand the point in getting mad cause a specific date hasn't been given. What if they came out and said the phone is coming out the 31st? Well, nothing changes.,lol. Your not going to get it any quicker. Your still gonna go to the store and get just like if the announced the release date the same day it comes out.

If they posted up right now that the phone is available, are you still
Going to bitch? No. Your going to lose your mind in excitement and run to the closest metro sore to buy it. Then you're going to play with it all day and not even think twice about being "mad" cause they didnt give a specific date for y'all to plan your seemingly busy lives around. Your going to praise metro for being an amazing company that just released the current top phone and brag to all your friends that are on contracts. I mean seriously, little kids get mad about stuff like this, although I'm beginning to think twice on what's on the other side of some of these user names.

So everyone needs to quit crying like little girls that didn't get a Barbie for Christmas, and go back to being a productive member of society instead of clicking refresh on the metro site.






I hope the Myans were right. (

December 21st can't get here soon enough. (
You obviously didn't thoroughly read my post, because I clearly stated that METROPCS EMPLOYEES ARE GIVING DATES! genius. We're supposed to chill out and relax and be patient when the company itself was obviously impatient in rolling out a product launch that was rushed, ill-prepared and unorganized. I am by no means an Apple fan but one would be stupid not to respect their marketing. Before a product launch Apple says nothing! All of the press releases and blogs are going off of pure speculation, but when they finally do a press meeting, the first thing they give is a DATE. That date is always very close because they're demographic is people who can drop hundreds of dollars on cue. MMetroPCS does not share this demographic. The date should be much further out for a customer base that wants to get the most bang for their buck. Saying October and waiting until the 31st to drop the product is ridiculous. People on here who can leak info have to be careful because "they're watching", well if they're watching all of these customers get frustrated shouldn't they at least issue a statement? If anything it should be the company telling us to relax NOT YOU! We have a right to be angry at this sham of a launch. Go look at the FB page, you're telling me we're ALL incorrect for complaining? ALL OF US are crybabies? Well if we are, then MetroPCS should start catering to us crybabies because we are holding a TON of money and all we want to do is give it to them. Gtfoh with your comments, as a business owner, I'm familiar with how customer relations should be handled, and THIS IS NOT IT.

Wow. Calm down Francis... try not to take things so personally.
I thought this thread was about opinions? You stated yours, and Fuzzy stated his - but it was indirect - not aimed directly at you. (unless I seriously missed something)
How can people get soooo fired up over a damn cell phone?


Geeze... go easy man. lol

I try to be logical and honest but the truth doesn't sit well with people.

At the end of the day I'm not the one hating the world cause metro led to me about a damn phone. Lol. Sounds like a fake reality show that should be on vh1.

First, i would quote what i actually said instead of removing half of my text. You might want to read my ACTUAL post. Regardless, I'm not here to argue with people on how metro sucks and how awful employees are when you can walk away at any time.

Plus, it's nothing new that metro doesn't give release dates so no since inn crying about it now. Also, anyone that's been a metro customer for any period of time can say how much metro employees suck so believing them falls back on the person gullible enough to take what they say as the truth.

It's a phone and a company lied. Is it worth being "infuriated"? Doubtful



One last thing, I'm sure there is a bunch of people with a fistful of cash that are just so mad at the world and life but you know what? Each and every single one of them are still going to buy the phone. Then all that whining and crying will turn into cheers and praise for how great metro is.

My local dealer has been saying until the end of this month ever since it was first announced on their website. So seeing how he was dead on with the date of the esteem, I'm just going to expect it on the 31st. Anything sooner would be awesome lol

My apologies for steering away from actual news of the release. I'll handle any further conversations i see fit through personal messages.

As Wayne and Garth would say "game on". (that means continue for the young bucks out there lol)
