You all are being gouged for your money,the connect and esteem (maybe) are great phones that if ics was put into would be even better. If you truly want a high end phone sign a contract. I personally this year bought, indulge, admire (broke), admire 30 bucks, and finally connect. People complain about price of contracts, do you see they release phones constantly to just make money?? That admire is a piece of s*it, and they kno it, but where they used to replace for free, u gotta pay 30. They are preying on you for cash, demand more than expensive gadgets, demand better treatment. Just my two cents...but whatevs..
luckily i live in the sin capital, so i can just don a wig, spend a couple of hours on the corner...and presto! got my phone, with no one being the wiser...
with the s3 coming i wont have to sign a contract. you gotta pay to play. you could put jellybean on the connect and the esteem and they still wouldnt be half as good as the s3. many wont get the s3 however because they wont have the cash. again, most people are on metro because they dont have a lot of money and cant afford the service of the big 4.
keep in mind that not even 3 years ago metro was a phone service that was not in the business of offering smartphones of any kind and didnt offer any kind of mobile data service yet alone 4g LTE. a samsung freeform was top of the line for metro back then. 3 years removed from being a service offering cheapo flip phones with no internet at all to where they're at now is pretty damn good and they continue to get better.
Are they offering tethering to the $50 & $60 plan because their data is limited?
People on the $70 plan already have unlimited web at UNLIMITED 4G SPEED NOT DATA. All the plans are unlimited web. The 50 has 2.5 GB of 4G speeds and 60 has 5GB of 4G speeds. If people add the hotspot to the $70, it'd be fine because they can share freely from their speedy bandwith. As a dealer, I'm still getting informed on how that will transition on other plans..
The data was always unlimited it's the speed of the 4G on those plans. I stated it on the above thread. After the speed cap, the 4G speed reduces depending on your coverage.
I see.. Thanks for the info!
One question.. Will there be a standard color? Like will we have the option of different colors or just have one color?
The Galaxy SIII colors are pebble blue and white. AT&T has the exclusive red Galaxy SIII.
Ill just color mine orange and call it special edition....
I'll color mine purple because that's metros color... Now if only I could come up with a manly name for it.. Purple Hulk. There!
Now that's original....the only Hulks I've seen are either gray or green.
Plum is pretty manly... maybe lol.
I mean it doesn't look too bad on this
I think the female hulk ,she hulk ,is purple lol
I think she's green. There's also a red hulk too.
On topic: I hope they get colors. Preferably a white one. ^_^
call it turbo purple like the car
I'm looking for the blue one.
That's a good point...what colors WILL metro get?
Idk but I'd definitely get white
White here too :thumbup:
As I stated, the Hotspot addon as of now will only be available for the $50 and $60 plans. Adding that feature to the $70 plan might change in the future.
It will not be available for the 70.
these are pretty good phones...options options options!!
whatever metro sells..best buy here sells a little cheaper...
50 or so bucs cheaper then at the metro store.
galaxy s3 or not..I want the phone with ICS..and 8 Mega pixel camera
I don't care if its $500 + ..whichever phone maybe.
the galaxy s3 blue color
reminds me of that mystic color of the 96 Svt mustang cobra.
which was a limited edition.
