Yeah I was lucky and got the last one, after they got done with my phone one more customer walked in asking for one. If I was 10 minutes late I would have to wait for them to get more. The girl at the store told me they only sent her 4 phones, I wonder if metro is testing the market to see if it will be a good seller.

Just flash a tmobile rom. You might find yourself surprised. After that keep the kernel and try at&t and i9505 roms. The surprises just don't stop.

No its not if you buy it brand new
And on the metro S4 you get customer support and all the dev stuff from tmos
Metro S4 also gets HSPA & LTE. They're basically the same exact phone.

NO!!! They have different kernels, different System Ui.apk and other differences. I tried a few mods and none of them worked except the volume tweak .

Question?
SGS4 is not available in the Detroit area.
Can I order a SGS4 from MPCS Website in New York area and activate it in Detroit via *228 and it will work?

I dont see why not morgankslade.

Unless, that is, they sold off the Tmobile cell towers in the bankruptcy.

Sorry, sorry, sorry....too soon, I know.

Its a shame really.....and shouldn't happen in this country.
