I'm definitely gonna go buy this phone.. the price is so low..
You won't regret it my friend
Love this phone...whats the stipulation of it being so cheap? Do you have to get a certain plan or be a new customer or something?
Wow. That's a crazy low price for the Motion if it's really $ 49.
Yeah technical Its 49. Its 49 after the instant and mail in rebates.
damn, just paid $150 two weeks ago! Well, even for 150 with no contract I've very happy with it so you will be even happier
and they raised the unlimited plan by $5/month to compensate over the long term
Nope, metro just wants everyone to move to 4G & they what to keep customers from fleeing
Just bought 2! Now hopefully I can sell my Esteem for $100 and break even...
I'm gonna miss changing themes every other week though
Well cm10 development is going good, data isn't working yet but calling is and it runs real nice and smooth. Plus with cm10 you can download themes for the theme engine and change them. :thumbup:
Sent from my typewriter.
I also made a remention on Metros FB page today of my 1st attempt at activation the day before I bought my phone at the Metro store (after returning the Best Buy phone). Metro had already said that initial Sim card mismatch issue was their problem.
I mentioned today that IF Metro had Just Been Able to Activate that phone during my 4 hrs trying, *I'd still have that BB phone NOW!* and could return it to them for a full refund Then get the mobetta Metro Motion deal.
I just got off the phone with Dallas. They made things right in my book. Not the full monty with rebate amounts but they did just fine.
Good job Metro. It's appreciated.

Themes not working on Motion?? Please , there is now a 2nd init recovery (meaning kernels can't be flashed), that can flash TROMs (Themed ROMs) and themes, and everything else in this thread:
We just need someone to make a bunch of themes for ICS now or try ones already made.
that would be a horrible idea, framework-res.apk has so much stuff that is made for the device in question, replacing that as well as sysetmui.apk with another devices will cause issues. people making themes for that device are in the clear though
Agreed. Cant just swap out the framework and systemUI. Boot loop like a mofo.
im thinking bout going and picking one up. not putting service on it or nothing (i like my esteem ) butjust to play around with. its a nice little device. kinda envious of it looking at my esteem but then i remember my screen size
The T-Mobile merger and getting people off of 2G
False. Merger has nothing to do with this phone
It's $100 and you get $50 back in 5 to 6 months.
Actually it's 12 weeks =3 months
3 months after you're application is verified. The 2 times I got rebates it took about 5 months.
Oh didn't know they take that long now. Haven't done an MIR since the Indulge though
Got my esteem refund in 3 months
Why the drop ? I paid $150 for my Motion. Is a new model being released soon ? If one already has a Motion on MetroPCS, can one buy a spare for $50 net cost ? Or does the phone need to be activated to get the lower price ?
To get the $50 MIR you have to be activated. So without activation its $100
And then here's this phone http://androidforums.com/showthread.php?p=5447331
