T-Mo says that the HTC Desire 626s will also launch at MetroPCS on August 3 for $79 with an instant rebate. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Core Prime is now available for $49.
Finally, MetroPCS is getting a new Mexico Unlimited plan add-on, which lets customers use their phones in Mexico just like they would at home. Think of it like a mini Mobile Without Borders. The add-on is available to customers with a base plan that’s $40 or more per month and offers unlimited calling and texting to Mexico from the US, and while you’re in Mexico, you’ll get unlimited calling, texting to the US, and data usage pulled from your bucket.
Metro customers that add Mexico Unlimited to their plan before August 31 will get it for free through 2016. After that, it’ll cost $5 per month.
