    So apparently I have a job offer from MetroPCS.
    I sold my old Ascend to a coworker, and she gave it to her mother.
    I guess her cousins or siblings completely locked the phone somehow, probably kept putting the wrong password in and the mother forgot her gmail password.
    So she brought the phone to the MetroPCS store around here to get it fixed, and the lady there said I need to come in and apply.
    I'm guessing she's not that savvy, cause all I did was put PG's CM7.2 on it and used the HC theme. Of course, for all I know the mother mightve changed it, but that's neither here nor there.
    Either way, what do you guys think? Should I go in?

    Personally Most MetroPCS stores have people that can be considered "Droidicapped" >.> But it's up to you. I would but I'm only 17 lol Have to be 18. I remember this lady that worked in a MetroPCS stored didn't know what to do so I just stepped in and helped her with the phone and the customer. :b

    I went into a store and asked if I could play with the Connect right after release. I put my phone down onto the glass and started playing with the Connect and told the gentlemen that I still enjoyed my Esteem better due to the fact that my Esteem ran much better, faster and smoother than the Connect did at the time because of a slight overclock and custom ROM. Then asked what I had done to altar the custom ROM in my own little way and told him the modifications that I had done myself to the ROM from stock ZVC to make it better on battery life and smoothness with the Esteem. He then asked if he could take down my number to give to his friend who needed help and that's all he said. Thinking it was help that was needed with a phone of some sort I got a call back from the Metro Associate that took my number down. He asked if I could come in right away because his friend that needed help was there and wanted to see me. So I went in and his friend asked if I could prove my tech skills to him before anything so I did showing him that I knew almost everything there IS to know(You Know How The A-Team Does It!). Then he immediately told me that he was the store manager of the corporate store here in Fort Myers and asked me to apply right there in person with him and that would have been considered my Interview and I would go ahead and move to the next step in the process but had to deny due to me moving in 2 days back with the girlfriend to GA but have since moved back to Fort Myers and am going to try to reach one of them again here soon. So it pays to be a nerd with this stuff and to know that MOST employees don't LoL. Sorry for jacking but though it was along the same lines here.

    Hopefully I can finish my little project before I get side tracked again. It seems that's a bad habit of mine, always start something but get ooh butterfly : D

    a female friend of mine worked at Tmobile for about 7 years...she averaged 40k annually and hit 70k one year. T-Mobile must have a helluva bonus structure. Not sure in Metro POS pays as well but it certainly wouldnt hurt to look into it
