Nice specs. Doesn't say that it will work with LTE though.

All it mentions is the 3G; and I can't remember off the top of my head what freq the LTE operates at. 'Course, at $600, It's way out of my league.

I would throw 6 bills at a phone with these specs in a heartbeat but unless they come out with a LTE varient it ain't coming here.

I'd love to, but like you say, it's not 4G and it is just way too pricey for me. The specs look fantastic.

I've not heard of that brand before, and honestly, the specs just seemed too good to be true. If it were a few hundred bucks cheaper, I wouldn't mind it not getting 4G... if those specs are for real and not just hype. lol

I believe it is useable on Metro's network. It says GSM and WCDMA. I believe that the frequencies listed for the WCDMA are the same as the CDMA here in the States.

If it isn't LTE forget it. As metro try to push more lte now. I think it'll be useless

It's not a joke, they are starting to send us press tips.

Whether or not it will be viable on various carriers remains to be seen.

Whatup Nasty???

"dont see the reason for these threads unless your wanting a flashed phone to forver run on 3g then go ahead and go for it but metropcs's uicc wont ever be compatible with any gsm sim cards nor vice versa"

How can I learn if I don't ask?

Please remember that what is old hat to one is news to another. And that's ok all the way around.

Plus, please be very good friends with someone before calling them cupcake (maybe you two are, I don't know). Otherwise, it could be taken with harsh intent, ok.

So is this like a chinese gs3 knockoff? Why would anybody pay six bills for this when the real gs3 is expected to cost about that?

lol good laugh bud anyways just to go along with the thread question i really think metro should start selling their uicc like simple mobile does with their gsm sim card i know there will be a very limted choice of phones people can choose from since the phone would have to be a cdma/lte hybrid phone and it would have to support the specific bands that metro operates from. pcs starts doing that im sure they would gain more money and more popularity within the prepaid community.

For 6 bills? Oh HELL no!

As I said;
"If it were a few hundred bucks cheaper, I wouldn't mind it not getting 4G... if those specs are for real and not just hype."

After thinking about it for a while, it would need to be in the $300 -+ range for me to consider it. (without 4G, that is)
