    I noticed that it was no longer on their Web site. I would guess that it wasn't as good a seller as the original M was since it lasted a lot longer. Metro must be making room for the new 4G phones.

    Yeah, I think it's kind of bogus. They got rid of this phone but still keep around both models of the Huawei M835.

    I think the Optimus M+ sold pretty well on Amazon, though. That's where I got mine and it came up sold out a few times.

    In all honesty I think they got rid of it because it would tank the sales of the new LG motion just like it was affecting the huawei 4g phone. Both this phone and the. New lg motion are listed at the same starting price but with a mail in rebate the 4g phone would be cheaper than this one

    Well I went to the dark side and bought a 4G Motion yesterday. Couldn't pass up the deal for the phone plus the $55 unlimited 4G. So now I have two Optimi (M and M+) just lying around.

    I agree. If I could afford the GS3, I would get it as soon as it was released on Metro and get the $55 plan.

    With the recent court verdict against Samsung it's conceivable they might have to pull the GS3 from the market to avoid paying Apple some big bucks. Anyway I'm sure it's a nice phone but is it really worth hundreds more than the Motion?

    Yeah, I don't know. Hadn't thought about it. I can't afford one at this point, any way. I haven't compared the two phones in a side by side so don't know. But as far as the phones go, if I was in the market to get a new phone, I'd probably go with the less expensive one just cause I would hate to spend that much on a phone. :)

    Well if you happen to come up with some cash, go get the Motion. If you like the M+ you'll love the Motion.
    Just keep an eye on the "limited time" $55 deal. we don't know how long that will be around and that is what sealed the deal for me.

    Yeah, my wife and I came to Metro in Feb '11 on the $50 plan, and since we had 2 phones on the plan we actually only pay $45.

    Nothing's going to happen to the Galaxy S III. It wasn't part of the lawsuit.
