    My guess is the catch is "new users only".

    It's for existing customers too as long as you have a metro 4G LTE phone except the craft.

    Hadn't seen it yet. Is it a 3G, or a 4G plan?

    It's a new 4G unlimited everything for $55 plan with NO THROTTLING SPEED CAPS. It's the basically the $70 plan with 4G speeds all the way but for $55.

    its an unlimited 4G LTE plan, not caps or throttling.

    But no hotspots so I dont think thats my plan...unless......The Motion gets "enabled" to do it...


    beat me to it Gomez

    So if I'm an existing member with an Optimus M on the $50 plan (lol) but want that new $55 plan and purchase the LG Motion...will that work, or no?

    *facepalm* you're right cus it won't include rhapsody and those services. You right, you right lol

    yes if purchase and activate a Motion tomorrow or before promo ends, you can get the 55$ plan. Your optimus is on the 3G plan, not a 4G plan


    Any customer with a MetroPCS 4G LTE phone can switch to this plan. If you find one on the street, or ebay or were willed it..you can activate it on a 55$ plan ,providing its a Metro 4G LTE phone

    Any idea when the promo ends? I get paid on the 31st of this month, I hope I make it!

    they are not giving a time frame and reserve the right to end it at any time. I honestly think you should be fine on the 31st, but if you can do sooner I would try to.

    Look at the 50$ 4G plan and thats what it includes, just with 5$ added on for unlimited.

    I think I'll just stay with my grandfathered $60 no-limit. I use Rhapsody a lot. The motion would be the shizznizz if it were 4.3 or bigger screen.

    i was getting excited looking at the motion and for only 150 it looks like a freakin amazing phone... but... then i got to the screen size and was like o well it was good while it lasted... lol cant give up my 4.3in esteem... deal breaker.

    I feel the same way, when i first got my esteem after the ascend i was like this thing is huge look at the notification bar lmao. This looks like a good one though but i will wait until something tickles my pickle

    The ZTE Anthem should be 4.3". It isn't as good spec-wise. But it still looks like it could have potential.


    Otherwise the only other alternative appears to be the S3. Which would make sense. The Motion is the price it is because of the compromises it makes. The S3 is the no-compromise phone and it shows that in the price.

    i think the only thing lacking is the screen size but Im happy with it just the same.

    Well, my OM has a 3.2 screen, this is 3.5 so slightly bigger. I was just at the Metro store, it's a little lighter, feels better, I was really impressed with - in every aspect it's an improvement from my current phone.

    Actually, I have one minor issue. It makes that sound similar to a single cricket chirp whenever you touch anything, I have NEVER liked that sound.

    Small price to pay, I guess.

    Disable "audible selection" in the sound settings. Should solve that.


    Personally I'm still on the fence on the screen size. But my contract doesn't run out till August 31st, so there should be more information on the Anthem by then (considering it should be out by then). But the specs are amazing otherwise.

    this plan seems to be shady i can see people leaving the $60 plan and the $70 plan the rhapsody bs and the metro video bs isnt cutting it i havnt met any1 yet that uses that shit yet im sure some1 will quote me and tell me they use those lame features but fact is are those features worth an extra $10-$20 more a month? hell nah i got my netflix and i got my pandora add that with the contreversal $55 plan and we get the best of all worlds for less.

    Hi i'm new to you guys. but actually i've been read these forums for awhile now. The "new" $55 plan was a old family plan I got for my wife and I. back when the Indulge first came out. and it was for a limited time then also. why they abandoned this till now? well just sharing the info.
