    Hi, My GF got a S3 from Metro PCS and she can't call out or receive calls and can't get a hold of anyone at Metro PCS to help her. Does anyone know someone she can contact? or a number she can call? She just got the phone.

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Dial *490 will get you direct to a customer service rep have them refresh the line also that helps a lot of people that have those issues

    I don't see the reason not too. For roms there are obvious reasons to stay stock but to me, root always is a must, just like custom recovery

    Root is very easy to put on and even easier to uninstall. A lot of people don't realize that root just a apk installed on your system. It does need to be installed through scripts but uninstalling it is so simple.
