    T-mobile or MetroPCS

    Any advantage with going with Metro over T-mobile prepaid?
    Comparing the 10gb 40 dollar monthly plans.

    One off the top of my head would be that Metro's $40 a month is all fees included, where's T-Mobile is not - so it ends up being closer to $45 a month. And Metro has the music unlimited, for what it's worth.

    If roaming onto AT&T is still a thing with T-Mobile in your general area, go with regular T-Mobile.

    Slightly higher priority, so T-Mobile prepaid might be worth it if you live in a heavily populated area and don't need the other perks of Metro.

    metro pcs will be cheaper per month since tax is built into the plan

    if ur porting from a non t-mobile mvno carrier and ull get some really good deals on brand new phones..all of metro pcs phones are the t-mobile models they use but just says metro on it and after 6 months metro will unlock ur phone, theres a unlock app that comes with all metro pcs phones but wont work till u hit that 6 month mark

    customer care is very good, they wont rip u off and they will hook u up the best they can

    It's actually 3 months not 6. As soon as you can upgrade phones you can get your current phone unlocked.

    Not anymore, Metro by T-Mobile now requires you to use their phones on their service for 180 days (6 months give or take a day or two} before they will unlock them. Source: https://www.metropcs.com/content/metro/en/desktop/metro/terms-conditions/phone-unlock-policy.html

    I have used Metropcs and Tmobile prepaid and Metropcs phone calls drop in and out while tmobile do not when comparing the same phones on the same towers. After high speed data is used Metropcs averages 17-75kbps throttled speed and tmobile prepaid averages 70 -130kbps.
