    Yeah I was lucky and got the last one, after they got done with my phone one more customer walked in asking for one. If I was 10 minutes late I would have to wait for them to get more. The girl at the store told me they only sent her 4 phones, I wonder if metro is testing the market to see if it will be a good seller.

    Just flash a tmobile rom. You might find yourself surprised. After that keep the kernel and try at&t and i9505 roms. The surprises just don't stop.

    No its not if you buy it brand new
    And on the metro S4 you get customer support and all the dev stuff from tmos
    Metro S4 also gets HSPA & LTE. They're basically the same exact phone.

    Does everything on the T-Mobile s4 apply to the metro version as far as development...

    NO!!! They have different kernels, different System Ui.apk and other differences. I tried a few mods and none of them worked except the volume tweak .

    Question?
    SGS4 is not available in the Detroit area.
    Can I order a SGS4 from MPCS Website in New York area and activate it in Detroit via *228 and it will work?

    I dont see why not morgankslade.

    Unless, that is, they sold off the Tmobile cell towers in the bankruptcy. :p

    Sorry, sorry, sorry....too soon, I know.

    Its a shame really.....and shouldn't happen in this country.

    Thanks. Had a lot of fun the past year with my S3. But this baby is awesome. I am gonna root it pretty quick though. It's slooooowwwww, lol. & I'm not liking TW at all. So I have a lot of reading to do here & on Tmo.

    mines was fast straight out the box, but all tmo roms will work great. But try Wicked, DarthStalker, and GoldenEye pretty bad arse.
