    I talked to a sales rep today at my local MetroPCS store and while they didn't mention anything about price they said they could get it this Friday. Usually they get new phones every Friday so the rep said there was a good chance.

    I'm due for an upgrade in November with Verizon, but I've had it with paying astronomical bills and losing unlimited data. Metro wasn't even going to be an option until the SIII came into play. It's now a must own for me.

    It basically got extended.

    How is it extended if the "sweepstakes period" begins today. Legally, 2 time periods = 2 contests + 20 phones.

    Yes I wonder if they will give it away 20 phones instead of 10. Should we register again?

    Initially it started September 26 until October 2.

    My guess is that metro didn't get enough to sign up. Once you start a start a contest, you can't change what's in the terms and conditions/agreement which in question is the end date. Soooooooo the only thing to do is to keep it going with another agreement to hopefully get more people to sign up. Thus it's been extended ;)

    If they wanted to do 20 phones they would have done it at once to cause less confusion, obviously, and to make it more enticing.

    speculation. But I'm sure a call to metro could sort it out. Either way i really don't care, i just want it for sale and not in a give a way.

    Right, but if they HAVE to honor the terms and conditions/agreement because they can't change it, don't they HAVE to honor the initial contest as well and give away the 10 phones. If they can't change the contest legally, how can they abandon it legally?

    Sorry if this sounds rude, but who cares about the freakin' contest just release the phone or give a release date already... [​IMG]

    The latest update about the device pertains to the contests that Metro is holding for it, which is why we ate discussing it. If there were some news about the actual release of the phone, I'm sure we would be discussing it...but there isn't. So relax because some of us just want a bit of clarity about the opportunity to have the device free of charge. Why just buy one, if there's a way that you can have 2 for the price of one? I fully intend on purchasing the phone no matter what, but I also want my fair shot at a free one. Abandoning the initial "sweepstakes period" doesn't sound all that fair to me.

    Dude like i said, speculation. It's a damn contest that i don't give an ish about.

    Call metro if you wanna know so bad.

    That's where I am now. I was hyped up about the s3 but the more time I have to think it over the more I'm starting to think on whether I need it or not, or if I should just be happy with what I have for now.

    Agreed. It's pointless.

    Calling Metro for anything other than service issues and billing questions is fruitless. We all know that, otherwise you release date junkies could just "Call Metro if you want to know so bad" and tell us all when it's coming out for sure.

    I've been thinking and i might get out now, buy an s3 out right and go to straight talk.

    I don't like what I'm reading about this merge. The comments at least from people that know a lot more than i do. It doesn't look good for metro users but also, thus could be a couple years from now and the s3 will be obsolete.
