    My friend you will save the $100 for the phone but you will spend more money in monthly payments for 3 years. I was planning to do the same thing but nope I will stay with metro and save the extra money :) By that time maybe the Galaxy S6 will be at the stores Lol and the S3 won't have the same value. Think about it

    Im actually gonna go through with this and just sell my motion for 100 and get the galaxy nexus unlocked, get it on tmobiles 30 dollar plan with unlimited text, 100mins, and 5gb of 4g which i know i wont use either up.
    You cant beat hd jellybean for 30 dollars a month with hspa+ speeds. Saves me intsantly 200 bucks and 25 dollars every month.:D plus as pg says better battery life.

    Yes and i have a feeling that the gnex price is gonna go down since the new nexus devices will be launched next month. Yet if one of the new nexus is 350-400 on google play ill just get that. Im just gonna wait till next month.

    Uhhhh. Yes you can. They offer bring your own device plans that utilize their 4g network.

    So how would you bring your device and use it if it wasn't unlocked?

    They even have specific i phone plans for unlocked i phones.

    I'll probably be holding off on any new device purchases and waiting till 2013 for MetroPCS to start selling GSM, HSPA+, LTE compatible devices.

    How? I thought you would need for a phone to be compatible with a sim card.

    I'm with you on this one lol. It's like all of us (almost) wants the galaxy s 3 but now ever since the merge announcement with metro and t mobile must of us have second thoughts about buying one.

    Smh, shit just got real.

    gonna hold on to my motion for another 9 months until the merger is final and we start getting a better phone selection through tmobile.

    hopefully i dont get bogarded off my $55 all you can eat plan and i'll have the galaxy s4.

    the galaxy s3 is an awesome device but there are already phones coming out that top that device and i've always said if metro could get something better i would get that instead and now it seems like this will become a reality.

    Hey you guys I have been looking for this answer to my question and it was answered by not one not two but 4 metro employees. Well I wanted to know if we had to get devices and they said you have til 2015 . But as the world has issues with money and jobs. All I can say is look out for a update. Cause t-mobile is changing to the full LTE SERVICE SO people like me with this esteem may not need a new device. But as both metro and t-mobile say Samsung s 3 would be the best choice and may still be in service in the later years of 2018 . If we are still around to see. So hey esteem may not work but s 3 will and will be around
