Can't wait until Metro brings the big boys to their knees. And consumers have yet to realize how they are slaves to their contracts, mainly because they want that latest phone every year.

From what I have heard, they will charge somewhere under $50 to set up a off network phone. I am curious about smatphones and how the will work with Metro.

$35 for a CDMA phone only, so no sim card phones. First month is free. Only catch, you cannot use the internet feature and all other data features. But its an easy and cheap way to switch over.
