MetroPCS launching new phone and rate plan promos


John Legere hasn’t been talking much about Sprint lately, instead focusing his T-Mobile smack talk on AT&T and Verizon. His sights are set on Sprint today, though, as he says he’s “taking the fight to Sprint” with MetroPCS.

MetroPCS is launching two new promotions that’ll be available starting tomorrow, July 7. First up, you can get up to $60 off any smartphone when you port your number over to MetroPCS. With that discount, there are nine phones that you can get for free, save for the sales tax. Looking at MetroPCS’s website, the nine phones that would be free after this $60 discount include:

  • LG K7
  • Samsung Galaxy Core Prime
  • Samsung Galaxy On5
  • ZTE Avid Plus
  • Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL (Android)
  • HTC Desire 626s
  • ZTE Obsidian
  • Kyocera Hydro Wave
  • LG Leon LTE

The other new promo focusing on family plans. MetroPCS will let you add a line to your family plan for $25 per month and get 5GB of 4G LTE data when you already have a line on the 5GB/$50 or higher rate plans.

Finally, MetroPCS is once again teaming up with UFC, this time to launch some new commercials that’ll debut during the finale of The Ultimate Fighter on July 8. You can check out the first ad with Ronda Rousey below.

    The phone models are meh. BUT… the plan could be great IF additionally you get the extra $5 off each line as family plan…

    • JLV90

      The phone models are the ones you get for free, you can get any phone they sell, including the iPhone in Florida with a discount.

      • Drewski

        So true.

    • Matt

      For free phones, those specs are fantastic.

  • riverhorse

    And stop with the loser Metro UFC commercials.. not only did both Rousey n Velazquez lose their titles, they were KO’d/submitted AND they’re poor role models.
    But then again, Presidential election much worse.
    Maybe by 2020 we can top it all by having a Kardashian as quintuple combo: Metro Spokesperson and President of USA & UFC, while married to Jon Jones & having an affair with Honey Boo Boo.

    • Matt

      Rousey went with an enlisted Marine to an annual ball. It was a very nice, redeeming gesture.

      • riverhorse

        You are a totally correct.
        And just noticed more Metro commercials with Pettis n VanZant… two more who were starched and now seem unlikely to regain.

    At their website I see “$60 off phones today”, “40% off your Sprint bill” and “2 lines for $60 with 6GB each”.

    • Guest

      Correction: It is not $60 off, it is “over 60% off select LG and Samsung” phones.

      • Ashraf Shaheen

        It is $60 off, making those phones free.

      • S. Ali

        Starts tomorrow

        • Guest

          I see. So I think the “2 lines of 6GB each for $60” will probably be ending today.

  • wazmo

    OT: T-Mobile is finally pushing the Marsmallow update to Galaxy Note 4 phones…

  • Gary T.

    Wonder which phone is technically the best overall on the free list?

    • Hmn

      Probably the HTC desire

      • Guest

        I agree, and after that one the K7.

    • Fabian Vilches

      alcatel xl most ram 2gb
      samsung core fastest cpu.

      both great phones!!!

    • George Salcedo

      The HTC desire is by far the best phone, runs very fluid and consistently. I would not trust mid range Samsung devices, not built to last.

  • Matt

    Glad to hear of continued growth for MetroPCS.

  • Acdc1a

    If you don’t need the added features of a Simple Choice plan these new Metro offers are amazing.

  • Mike

    These plans for new customers only?

    • JLV90

      Existing customers too, $60 discount is for customers that port from another carrier

      • Mike

        My wife doesn’t use much data, but she currently has 1 GB of LTE with text and data for $25 on our Metro family plan (I have the 5 GB plan). So could I switch her to the plan that has 5 times the data for the same price?

  • Rob

    In other news, the T-Mobile HTC 10 got an OTA and a RUU…

  • DishItTakeIt

    Between the On5, Fierce XL or Desire 626, which one would you all recommend?

    • eanfoso

      Fierce xl all the way, battery life is amazing

    • Drewski

      I would go with the Samsung Galaxy On5. It has more features(Enhanced Voice Services, Video Calling, Advanced Messaging) than what those other two are unable to offer. So therefore I would go with the Samsung Galaxy On5 phone.

  • so, if metro runs on tmo’s network and is cheaper.. what’s the difference? just curious

    • Drewski

      MetroPCS has lessor expensive pricing plans and less price features than what T-Mobile would have offered to all of it’s customers there. T-MOBILE-MetroPCS network as an whole(same network same one full company, just different pricing plans/Services).

      • Francisco Peña

        “ of customers who choose T-Mobile branded service plans has precedence over data of customers who choose non T-Mobile-branded service plans, such as MetroPCS, when the network is presented with competing demands.”

        My neighbor has MPCS and I have TMo and we have the same exact phone. He hasn’t had complaints other than the same dead spots around our neighborhood.

    • drago10029

      tmobile offers:

      1. financing on phones
      2. way more high end phones
      3. higher priority on data
      4. unlimited video streaming on many services.

      Those are the top differences.

    just switched from 3 painful yrs with sprint and couldn’t be happier! glad to see tmo updated their towers, speeds are amazing now! not to mention the 9g of free tether! which i’ve only used about a gig of, cause i’m still using pdanet/foxfi for truly unlimited tethering which i have used about 27g in 5 days downloading all 7 seasons of modern family!
