    MetroPCS no longer has the Motion on their website. Why ? What replaced it ? Is the replacement better ?

    Because the F3 exists and is a thing. By all means it's better because it's newer it's gsm with hspa+ and lte connectivity I think only spec the motion beats it is storage


    its back now

    And processor speed - 1.2ghz for the F3, 1.5ghz for the Motion

    Any reports on the F3 ? Is it worth changing from the Motion to the F3 ?

    Keep an eye on the F3 forum, should be more Metro users posting in there as they get their phones-
    LG Optimus F3 - Android Forums
    I'm definitely leaning towards it, the only major downside is the internal storage and that can be addressed by rooting and Link2SD.

    I still think screen size is worth it alone

    So are people buying the Optimus F3 from other carriers and then activating it on Metro? So far I haven't seen it or the Windows phone on their website.

    The F3 has been on Metro's site for a few weeks. Haven't seen the Nokia yet.

    I'm in sacramento and I'm not seeing it, local stores don't seem to carry it either. I wonder if it has to do with their switchover to T mobile network.

    I'm not understanding at all how they're releasing the phones to areas.

    We had T-Mo here before, at least a T-Mo store anyway.

    If you plug my zip in (34475) on Metro.com the L9 is available while the F3 is not. :thinking: The Motion and Spirit are also still available here.

    I plan on hitting both Auth dealer stores near me tomorrow to see if I can do a Metro T-Mo side by side speedtest.

    depending on the area, tmobile will blow metro out of the water on the data side, however, reception,metro has the stranglehold, but thats in southern florida where I am, up by you, could be quite the contrast.
