    I was thinking of getting a new phone on Metro in order to replace my Opt.M, is the LG Connect 4G a good upgrade? Or should I wait for something better? :thinking:

    I personally took just a small step up and got the Optimus M+. It's a nice phone, good speed, it handles flash web sites, and really good internal memory. Now, true it's not 4G, but still a decent phone, for a small price. I like the camera flash also.

    i would not get a phone that doesnt have 4g. what kind of money u lookin to spend? i would ether say the connect of the esteem (i have the esteem and i love it). the m+ honestly isnt a big upgrade i personally would keep my optimus if i wasnt gonna upgrade to the esteem or connect. or wait for a couple months and see what metro is gonna release.

    I got the M+ as well. It's an incremental upgrade but I felt it was worthwhile, not everyone may agree. I personally don't have much of a need for 4G.

    Metro's 3G speeds are starting to get decent, I may not need to get a 4G phone :) as long as I can browse this website fast and receive calls and text, and play Pandora, I'm happy.

    I agree that their speeds are getting better. Just the other day I clocked a decent speed in a place that 6 mo before I was only getting 1x, if I was even able to get a data connection at all.
