Is this a joke, and if not, could it be flashed to work on Metro's service?
Buy OPPO Find 5
Nice specs. Doesn't say that it will work with LTE though.
Wouldn't matter since a flashed phone wouldnt get 4g.
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
defenetly wont work. its a gsm phone
Connectivity Technology: GSM + WCDMA 3G network
Network Band: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz & WCDMA 850/1900/2100 MHz
Data Technology: GPRS / EDGE / HSPA+
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
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
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.
Thanks Early... that's what I was wondering.
"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?
dont take it the wrong way but this thread isnt the only one asking the same question so in conclusion i was speaking in general
Forgive me. I didn't see anyone else asking about the OPPO Find 5 when I posted it.
My bad for being an idiot, right? lol
relax cupcake i was referring to question about smartphones being flashed to metro and ur not an idiot dont ever call urself that unless you buy an iphone lol jk
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.
can i call u cupcake then? or how bout muffin? lol jk yea me and annie go way back.... last week lol
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?
well i wouldnt thats for sho but some1 on perhaps simple mobile or some prepaid carrier that allows unlocked phones on their company might think hmmm a quad core phone on a prepaid carrier = great idea. although im not sold on just a quad core cpu i know these chinese people are nortorious for selling junk lol i remember a friend trying to show off his bootlegged iphone on simple mobile and i looked at it and said dude this aint a iphone and he said yes it is and i go apple dont use java for this ios and where on this phone does it have anything that says iphone lmao. epic
Compadre, you can call me anything except late for dinner.
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.
This phone is making a lot of noise.
whats that i cant hear you? lol this isnt going anywhere no phone that isnt branded by metro pcs will ever work with their Lte network. if users want a 3g/cdma phone for the price of $600 lmao hey its their money but for me and the rest of the 90% droid fanaticz on android forums hell nah!
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)
