    Metro's galaxy s3 it's an lte device tmobile is hspa but I also believe it has an lte chip as well either way I like metro's prices so therefore metro for me

    Well i respect your opinion but metro will never announced it like others do unless you just want to leave metro that's another story there are several excellent sources that have already said the s3 will be out later October or so

    I understand that metro handles phone realeses differently, but what I was trying to say is that you can get the s3 on tmob right now, while on metro you have to wait till around q3. And that's not even for sure because like you said metro is "different with their releases. I could have been clearer
    And tmobules phone selection isn't very good but is metros? The connect is metros highest specd phone and its just under tmobile's 4th or 5th best phone
    And yes I know we are talking pre vs post but the monthly prices aren't that radically different

    isnt the s3 QUAD core 1.4 ghz? also id say the tmobile version would be better because the tmobile network speeds are light speeds ahead of mpcs. also i suspect mpcs version may be tuned down specs.....otherwise why not launch now?

    considering that they're gonna sell it for at least $500 it would be dumb for them to water it down. its already at a high price and if its dumbed down no one will buy it. they'd be wasting samsung's time, their own time, and the consumers time by getting the phone on metro at all.

    its just as possible that they could be adding things to it. BTW the quad core is international version only. no us companies got that.

    assuming they'll have similar specs, go with the network that works best for you.

    If you have a 42 hspa device then almost always tmobile

    Sorry. What's a 42 hspa device?
  18. yahhboy

    yahhboy Well-Known Member

    It's the modem inside the phone, I meant a 42mbps hspa+ device, which the galaxy s3 is

    It all depends on the area you live in, & who has the better signal. I'm in Dallas & Metro has a strong signal all over here, & the dl speeds are constantly around 3-4Mbps.

    after you hit your LTE quota you get throttled back to unlimited 3G

    if you get the $70 plan there's no throttling on metro. the most you can get with tmobile is 5GB.

    metro's "3g" is garbage.
