1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

What service do you use? Particularly interested in MetroPCS vs Cricket.

    Hello all. I've been browsing the boards for awhile, but have only recently started posting. The community always seems to be of help, whether it's with questions, reviews, or just chatting. :eating:

    Anyway, I currently have a Huawei Ascend II, and am under contract with US Cellular, and it's just too expensive. Once it ends, I'll be switching for sure. (I know i would need to flash to My main two interests are MetroPCS or Cricket.

    I'm thinking of one of these two plans:
    http://www.metropcs.com/metro/detail/per+month+4G+LTE+with+Rhapsody/4GALL60

    Which would be nice. Talk, Text, 3g, and it has 5GB, but it doesn't cost extra if you go over, it just slows it down (so it says). The music stuff seems, nice, too.

    Or:
    Cell Phone Plans | Compare Cell Phone Plans | Cricket Wireless

    One of those. But I'm confused as if it is actually unlimited 3g. And the fact that you have to pay for Google services...does that mean if Iwent with the 40 dollar one, I couldn't use Youtube and such, or could I still do so from the browser.

    Hmm...in retrospect the $55 one seems the way to go.

    Anyway, any thoughts, insight, advice is always welcome.

    Thank you very much.

    On Cricket if you have an Android you have to have the Android plan which is $60-$65. I was with Cricket for years, and I loved them. The customer service kinda sucks, but the plan was so cheap I didn't care, and coverage was decent. The Android plan is unlimited everything, but they slow your data down after 1 gig....

    How noticeable is the slow down?

    Thanks for your response, btw.

    I honestly never noticed if I was slowed down or not, but I may have not gone over because I never checked how uch data I was using.

    Are you sold on a CDMA prepaid? There are always GSM prepaid carriers such as H20, Simple Mobile, etc and you can just buy a phone on craigslist or ebay. You'll get faster 3G and the flexibility of a SIM card, plus you don't have to deal with that flashing BS.

    I'm w/Cricket...I've got the Huawei Mercury which is their best android phone as of now. Haven't experienced the "throttle back/exceeded 1 gig" deal. (WiFi a ton)
    You do have to sign up for the android plan ($65)... Good speeds w/3G and the coverage is on par.
    For warned, Customer service is less than desirable... YMMV.
