yea im game as well, if this phone comes out and hopfully its not watered down like all the other metro phones, then i wouldnt mind spending $400 bucks on it.

It's just hard trying to contain myself from leaving my $55.00 dollar a month phone bill to going to a major carrier just to have a nicer phone. and paying $100 plus a month for a phone bill...

If its at 400 bucs..then most likely a washed down version of the device...I really hope they don't touch a single thing..I had a chance to play with it...and its amazing..beautiful..fast...the camera is my favorite spec..I know metro is interested in bringing more 4g lte phones. but if it comes to their lineup at 400 bucs..seriously doubt it be galaxy s3 completeness.. wonder if anyone has had it flashed and how well it works on metro.

The Samsung Galaxy Lightray 4G is officially retailing at $459
  • 2.3 Gingerbread OS
  • 1GHz processor
  • 16 GB memory card included
  • HDMI output
  • Sound alive audio
  • 8 MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording
  • 4GLTE Hotspot enabled
  • 1.3 MP front face camera
  • Dyle mobile TV

There's no need for sources for have no fear a dealer is here lol

What do you guys think about the price? I'm ehh about it. Not surprised about OS :/ Considering the Esteem is still $379, this phone might be a slight upgrade. I'd still save for the S3!

So there you go everyone

if they hold out til this year a price drop isnt uncommon, but yea I tend to think they will dumb it down some how, less RAM, something.

Yes, the gingerbread and processor was a turnoff lol It does have an 8MP camera with a 16GB memory card but you're still better off with the Esteem
But I'm sure the S3 for metro will have what we're all dying for. Just gotta hang in there a little more!

Huawei Verge

Samsung Galaxy S 3
§ Will be available after September and before December
If this Metro comes out with all of these new phones and starts subsidizing them get ready for another change in the plans and some sort of price increase. I am assuming they will subsidize the S3 because dropping $600 on a phone is a bitter pill to swallow. There are some very nice laptops in the market for that same price....

The SG3 on U.S. Cellular is $350 with a $100 MIR. ($250 + Tax). They have a smaller customer base than MetroPCS, at this time. So if it's released for that price on MertroPCS without the MIR it would be on par with the price of the phones they have out now. Let's see how much MORE they try to $queeze out of us.

Listen up ya mike28 sent me this and it seems theres a chance the price of the GS3 will be less than $600 and more like $528



Ting now accepting pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III | PhoneDog

althought those prices are being directed towards sprint theres a chance that we might get that deal as well .

Quote:
Looks like the list of U.S. operators selling the Samsung Galaxy S III has grown once again. Ting, a Sprint MVNO, has reached out to tell us that it's now accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S III, which it'll offer in Marble White and Pebble Blue in both 16GB and 32GB sizes. The devices are expected to ship in three to six weeks. As for pricing, the 16GB models cost $529, while the more capacious 32GB versions are $579. If you need more incentive to pre-order, Ting says that it's going to select two GSIII pre-orders of the first two hundred and refund the price to those two buyers.

Listen up ya mike28 sent me this and it seems theres a chance the price of the GS3 will be less than $600 and more like $528



Ting now accepting pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III | PhoneDog

althought those prices are being directed towards sprint theres a chance that we might get that deal as well .

Quote:
Looks like the list of U.S. operators selling the Samsung Galaxy S III has grown once again. Ting, a Sprint MVNO, has reached out to tell us that it's now accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S III, which it'll offer in Marble White and Pebble Blue in both 16GB and 32GB sizes. The devices are expected to ship in three to six weeks. As for pricing, the 16GB models cost $529, while the more capacious 32GB versions are $579. If you need more incentive to pre-order, Ting says that it's going to select two GSIII pre-orders of the first two hundred and refund the price to those two buyers.

I'd actually heard of Ting on another forum. I'm kinda surprised that they'll be getting the S3 so soon.

Im loving this but have a strong feeling that metropcs will downgrade it big time... Probably 2.3 GB instead of 4.0 ICS

The international version is actually the one with 1gb and the quad core processor. We get 2gb and the dual core.

I really doubt metroPCS will water the SIII down. Samsung is trying to change their image and having a dumbed down SIII will only hurt it. It's their flagship phone. I doubt they will allow any company to water it down.

It would be one thing if it said they were getting the quad core because it would mean they somehow got the international version.

If they @$#? With the specs and capabilities of this phone in any way I'm not getting this phone and I'm sticking with my connect.

I was going to upgrade my phone this month to a 4g phone on metro. Now I am thinking I should just wait another month and see what comes out between now and then.

Really want an s3 but I'm still in hs and my income is limited. Plus I'm trying to buy a gtx660-ti and that's going to be around $300. Plus the nexus 7 is going to cost me a bit of cash. So until I get those two I'll keep my esteem as long as possible.
