    How are ya'll feeling about your esteem? satisfied or not? Also what 4g plan are you on, & with the money spent on the phone itself do you ever wonder about changing carriers? I am currently using the #2 Rom v1.5 & I use the TSF Shell launcher (pricey but starting to pay off, smoothest launcher) I'm satisfied besides the fact I could only have a few apps open before I start getting lag, realized the esteem isn't a great multitasker, also battery life.. but do you think Cm7 or Cm9 is promising? Give me your thoughts overall about the phone & what you're running. :)

    Best 300 dollars ever spent and I'm running bo on zvd with the speed kernel. I'm happy with my plan and as for switching? No, I'm happy with my service.

    No I would never leave Metro. Phones aint cheap, no secret. Plus its no reason to for me to leave $40 dollars for unlimited 4G a month to over $100 for a little bit faster 4G. no logic there. Yes I love my phone. Yes I love my rom, kernel and theme. I love everything about my phone. Everytime I turn it on Im reminded of how much I love it.

    I will never leave Metro. Why would you? $40 versus $120? No brainer.

    Yes I'm about to switch to another carrier or thinking about to 'cuz I'm so jealousy of my cousin Samsung Galaxy S3 I wanted one so so bad, as much as I love my Esteem but cant stand Sprint plans kinda like they rip and overcharged you for nothing, so staying with Metro for now.

    Probably the one of the best decisions I've made. Never been on a contract, never will. Winter 2012 looks promising as far as I know. The amount I pay for my bill as a dealer is something far beyond incredible. My Esteem has outlasted other phones my friends had like the Iphone 4S, G2, X, EVO 4G, and even the bionic. The Esteem will have a REAL competition by the end of the year. A scale from 1-10. I'd give my Esteem an 11.

    I thought the s3 wasn't out yet?


    While i would love to have an s2 or note, i refuse to triple my bill a month just to have one. That would be around 900 MORE a year i would pay. Plus a contract. I'll be happy with my esteem :D

    My baby has done evrything I have asked of her & does it very well. Metro has come a long way. & they can only get better. No way to switch. I'm with everyone else, why pay 3 times as much for just a liiitttllllleeee bit more speed? Not worth it.

    PhoneNews reported that Metro is getting a ZTE phone. Same size as the Esteem, but with a dual core processor.

    We should be having 3 more LTE phones by the end of the year. One of them is the Huawei Activa 4G. I haven't heard of the ZTE besides the score and hopefully another LG LTE phone that should be dual-core with a 4.3' screen or higher possible running ICS. Can't wait :)

    The first cell company i was with was VoiceStream, loved it, then it was bought out and became tmobile, HATE THEM WITH A PASSION, i had nothing but problems, seemed like i was on the phone with customer service more than anything else, just as my contract with tmobile was up a new carrier called Metro pcs popped up in detroit, at that time offering no contract for $20 a month I bought the kyocera strobe, loved that phone had it for years till kyocera came out with the touchscreen phone on metro pcs. then went over to the first android and so on till i got to the great esteem, only way I'd buy a new phone now is if metro suddenly got the note.
