    I've been a lurker on this site for a while, just bought my bf a Admire and was planning on the Esteem for myself. Anyway, every metro store around me including the website are all out of the esteem so I tried wirefly last night and was pleased to see they had it, problem was I couldn't order until I put some $$ in my account. So this morning I got back to wirefly to place my order and the esteem is gone! Typed lg esteem in the search bar just to be sure and nada..went to newegg and same deal there too. Was there last night, gone today:mad: Does this mean they aren't carrying them anymore or are they just back ordered? Wouldn't they say that instead of wiping them from the site completely?
    In any case a buddy of mine needs some extra xmas money this year and offered to sell me his month old Esteem for $170. What I'm wondering now is if I buy it off of him will metro void the warranty? Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Go to wirefly and go to the prepaid carrier section, look for metro pcs and the esteem should be there.

    Buy using the search bar it won't show up....this happened to me too..but using the other method I found and ordered my Esteem.

    Unless they are completely out now.

    I know it may sound like a stupid question but is that website legit? Has anyone purchased from them before? Do they offer insurance like wirefly? Two day shipping?

    I did all that and it still didn't show up. Wouldn't they just say it was back ordered instead of taking it off the site all together? I went to letstalk.com as shiny suggested and it was there for the same price that was offered on Wirefly. Anyway, I ended up buying my friends off him. Killer phone!!!

    I know at least 10 people from Facebook that have ordered thru LetsTalk and received their phones in 2-5 (Holiday season) as far as the insurance not sure. If they do they'll ask you when you go to check out if you want to add it,

    Oh and I also think you get an sd card with it ordering from them

    How can you buy it without selecting a 50 or 60 monthly fee if all I want is the phone, and switch the line i already have onto it?

    If you're desperately looking for the Esteem, you'll most likely find them in stores as they're stocking up for the weekend sales but you'll have to pay $350 with the rebate after. But you'll find them forsure. It'll be a little tough finding one online due to high demand but if you wanna wait to pay cheaper, go for it :)

    really i was on their site earlier today, wirefly that is and i totally saw the esteem. now if it was the optimus M for metro pcs, then yeah i whole heartedly agree about it being gone. but maybe it'll refill by next week who knows.

    My link works fine...furthermore...if that link doesn't work for you, all you have to do on wirefly.com is type Metro PCS in the search field on the top left of the web page, and the Esteem comes up as the last phone on the list

    Yes I know how to do it. But trust me it wasnt on wirefly for about 2 days. Didnt matter if you searched Metropcs, LG Esteem, or went to phones>prepaid/ no contract then selected metro then looked thru the list. No where to be found..... I get "page not found" when clicking your link.
