From November 25th, MetroPCS will begin offering the ginormous Samsung Galaxy Mega. The company announced that it would available to buy from its online stores and from retail outlets. Prices are from $349 (plus tax) for new customers who buy the Mega in a MetroPCS store. That price includes an instant $100 rebate in place “for the holiday season” and a $50 rebate for getting it at a MetroPCS store.

The Mega is a huge device, packing in a 1280×720 resolution, 6.3-inch Super Clear LCD display. It also features an 8MP camera, 1.7GHz dual-core processor and a 3,200mAh battery and runs Android 4.2.

“MetroPCS wants consumers to get the most for their money, and by eliminating the need and cost of two separate devices and delivering a premium 4G LTE mobile experience for as low as $40 a month, we’re providing quality and value in a mega way,” said Tom Keys, COO and executive vice president of MetroPCS. “The Galaxy Mega offers a large screen experience on-the-go with the portability of a smartphone and the larger viewing display of a tablet and we’re delivering it on an advanced nationwide 4G LTE network.”      

The company also reminded us that its plans and service are coming to 15 new markets from today, taking the number of markets up to 45 in total. If you’re in one of the areas below, you will now be able to take advantage of MetroPCS’ services:

    I don’t think that’s a pic of the Mega 6.3. The icon grid on the Mega 6.3 is 5×5. That pic has the standard 4×4.

    EDIT: That’s a pic of the Mega 5.8, the smaller version that was released in some territories, however it’s the 6.3 that’s coming to Metro.

    Guess this still means no LTE for Cincinnati Metro Area

  • Bori

    Adding more folks to an already capacity limited network here in Cincinnati. I think they should’ve waited till cinci’s lte was deployed. And the waiting continues…..

    • JB45

      Yea I dont really understand either. They must have gotten that whole Cincinnati- Dayton market wrong….and just ment Dayton with the LTE thing…AGAIN

      • Bori

        Yeah, just like when the “rumored” city list came out back in May, it said Cincinnati-Dayton for lte.

        I was looking at the Sensorly map, and we are definitely the whole on a Krispy Kreme dougnut

    So Metro (like other carriers) fails to acknowledge CURRENT customers. This price cut is for NEW lines only………………..such bogus BS from Metro/TMO………………once they have you, you get NOTHING, except the option to buy new phones at FULL price….a joke.

    • JaswinderSinghJammu

      Since there isn’t a contract just add another line get a new number and go back the following month and have them move the old number to the new phone..

    • Espain

      Wrong – the $100 off is for upgrades too. Visit a store and find out for yourself.

  • steveb944

    Wow that’s a pretty great price with the deals they’re giving. Can we use Metro devices on T-Mobile?

    • superg05

      they both run on the same network so im guessing?

  • mingkee

    Please, please, please make it working with T-Mobile without unlocking.
    I’d like to use it as tablet.

    • Brian

      i just bought mine today, it will not work with a tmobile sim without unlocking first

  • UMA_Fan

    I wonder if DT ever devices to sell all its US shares if tmobile would just rebrand itself MetroPCS or would they come up with a new brand entirely? T-Metro?

  • silverhawknike

    MetroPCS expand CMDA network or GSM “tmobile” network? I dont know which one lol

    • superg05

  • jonjon

  • Bklynman

    • Jesse James
