    I think I might be going with Metro PCS for my phone. I have a question, the main difference I see and care about between the 4G $40 and $50 plan is the "Unlimited Email Access" feature. It's on the $50 but not the $40. So If I get the $40 plan, how does my Email work? Do I get charged for every Email or something???

    I think, but don't know for sure, that is talking about using the MetroPCS email, and not Gmail.

    Really need a answer for this so I know whether I need the $50 plan or I can get by on the $40.

    I really don't think you'd have a problem on either plan, getting your gmail, hot mail, yahoo, or what ever email you use. I was looking at the Metro website and it looks like it only applies if you use their mail@metro feature. If you don't touch it, you won't have anything to worry about.

    See that is what I thought but when I went into the feature to read more into it, it was talking about other email accounts too within mail@metro like yahoo, live, ect. So it confused me..

    mail@metro from MetroPCS checks your email

    View that link. It shows you use your email accounts with mail@metro. Now this is going to be my FIRST android phone so Idk if I can still get my Live email WITHOUT this mail@metro feature.

    All email uses up data but the metro mails app data usage does not count towards your limit.

    So what is the limit on data for each 4G plan? I don't see that on the list... Only one I see is Streaming
