I have been with metro for 4yrs and would like to know why metro dont offer a great deal on phones for existing customers. I am thinking about switching to another company because it seems as though metro dont care if you stay a loyal customer

My daughter wants the I phone 6s, but I was wondering if I can still get the deal? She’s never had a line before so she can’t switch from a company. This would be he first company that she’s applied to.

I’ve seen some good reviews of the LG Stylo 4 on YouTube. Given that both the Stylo 3 and Stylo 4 are included in the Metro PCS free phone promo, the only reason I can see to opt for the Stylo 3 would be if one’s Metro PCS store were out of the Stylo 4 and one really wanted a phone with a stylus.

Is the unlimited plan a contract or could somebody swap to a cheaper plan the next month? I could use an unlimited plan, but at $50/month it’s too rich for my blood. I could do one month at $50.
