I just switched from MetroPCS with the LG Optimus M to AT&T with the HTC Inspire 4G
In my honest opinion there should not be a droid without it running on at least 3G speeds.
Mike, I know you are a huge user/fan of the LG Optimus M. But really when it comes down to it, that phone is only good when connected to a wi-fi hotspot. And I highly dout it's even on 2G. It's just on the same old network 1X as all the other MetroPCS phones.
In the end, all I can say is you have to wait and hope that this new "droid" that metropcs is bringing out is pretty nice on it's "4G LTE" But I'm pretty sure the old saying kicks in, you get what you pay for. I went from a $54.00 phone bill, to $94.00. Yes, I agree MetroPCS is a good deal, but in my eyes, it's only good if you talk and text. As far as web goes, forget out it. I'm not trying to rag on anyone for having Metro, I had them for 3 years. I'm just putting my two cents in.
