    Not sure about Metro PCS, but my wife has one on Virgin Mobile. Runs great, and overall she likes it. Way better than her old Intercept. The battery lasts longer than the one in my Optimus V.

    Your M and my V are almost the same phone. I can tell you the Wildfire is a good upgrade. Same speed processor, but with a better instruction set (means you don't have to go through a bunch of gymnastics to get flash to run on it), better camera (with led flash), same size screen, but with higher pixel density meaning clearer image.

    I bought this phone when it came out and at first i thought it was great but the internal memory is horrible! it gives you less than a gig and the system updates take almost the entire internal memory so it wont let you download or use any applications, i went to metro to get my phone reset twice and it never fixed it, some metro stores stopped selling it because of all of the problems with it. I got tired of dealing with it and went to metro to complain again and i ended up buying the lg optimus m+ while i was waiting to get it the main guy i talk to walked in and said so finally getting a new phone huh yeah that one has had alot of problems we stopped selling it. I would not recommend this phone to anyone if you actually want to use your phone.

    I bought this phone back in February or March through Metro PCS and I have enjoyed it ever since. If you're looking for something more high tech, than you might want to go with something else, but this phone is great for people starting off with Android. The internal memory is very low, but that's because it's a low grade Android phone, but I rooted my phone, which let me delete a lot of the apps that Metro gives you and then I downloaded an app called DroidSail Super App2SD, which lets you move more than the normal Apps2SD will let you move, plus it's free. So right now I have about 60 or more MB for my internal memory and I have tons of apps on my SD card. So that took care of that.

    The phone also has a 5mp camera, which I love to use a lot. Taking a video on it is nice too. All-in-all, I love this phone and don't regret buying it.

    I ended up getting the wildfire s and im sorry i did. My last phone was the optimus m and when I updated the software it started working slow and would freeze and restart (i did drop it a few times) i actually had less headaches with the optimus to the wildfire s

    On the wildfire s... I have pretty fingers..i mean skinny fingers lol and its really hard to text which i should have known seeing the size of the phone. It does get annoying when you have to take your time hitting the right characters
    Very low memoery i can't download more then a few apps without getting the low memory warning and updating the software is a pain. I had to delete the apps then re-install. I am working on rooting the phone to see if that helps
    Very,very,very slow mobile network. When I'm out and not in a wifi area searching the web is impossible (i have metro pcs) it could be their service but, my last phone was metro and i had no problems going on the web when i was out
    The only thing i like about the wildfire s is the camera and flash
    This phone is not worth the agervation

    dmcd,

    If you root the phone, install Link2SD. Then you will never have memory problems again

    Try going to the keyboard settings and selecting "phone" for the keyboard type. You will then get the traditional keyboard with bigger keys and 3 letters on each
