    MetroPCS customers can now get rhapsody for just $5 since its no longer bundled with any plans. But you do have to be on 1 of the recently announced plans. The new $40,50 & 60 plans.

    In a move that could be considered slightly similar to what Muve's been doing with Cricket, Rhapsody announced today it's teamed up with MetroPCS to bring a more desirable music plan to the carrier's subscribers. What this means, essentially, is that MetroPCS customers can now pay an extra $5 per month on their plan to stream as many on-demand tunes as possible from Rhapsody's extensive library, so long as it's one of those recently introduced "simpler" deals. Naturally, how much music folks can stream will also depend on which month-to-month plan they are on, but the $5 monthly Rhapsody subscription is set to be the same across MetroPCS' $40, $50 & $60

Existing customers are eligible to change from the $10 Rhapsody bolt-on to the $5 Rhapsody bolt-on.

    I'll stick with free TuneIn radio streaming 97.1 The River from Atlanta. They consistently have a better Classic Rock play list than I could make myself.

    I haven't listened to fm radio in more than 10 years. I listen to sports talk if I listen to anything on the radio and I have iheartradio for that.

    Even if you have the rhapsody plan, it sucks using it on Android phones. When I had the subscription, I'd use the app on my ipod touch it's much smoother, simpler and playback is a snap. But for $5 now it's cool but I'd rather stick to my $55 unlimited plan. I use rdio it's kinda like slacker.
