MetroPCS Complaint - Beware!
FLORIDA -- Metro PCS is the leader in unlimited,HA I am a insider to metro,Having owned a store, I have had A first hand look into the ways that metro screws the consumer.
1. You will not save money-if you travel out of area, you are on travel talk on Verizon and Alltel's network and will be charged up to .75 cents per min in witch you pay before you leave the area...So you kinda guess how much you will use your phone, and once you put the money on your account(prepay)It stays and you can't get it back,or have it put towards your monthly bill... Instead you are told to buy ring tones with the cash or hold it on your account till you travel again. I know first hand that most folks put 100.000+ on their account to travel talk. Add that to your monthly bill of 62.00 plus the 3.00 Bill pay fee and you will be out 165.00 on that month you needed to travel.
2.Your first month is not free,You buy a phone ranging in price from 99.00 - 300.00 no free phones. Let's say that you paid 99.00 for your phone and the sales person sold you the e45 plan, you pick no other features, your monthly total will be around 58.00 plus a 3.00 bill pay fee... so your around 61.00 or so, you got your phone on the 1st of the month so that means you prepay on the first of the next month YOU PAY AHEAD OF TIME, sounds like "no BIGGIE" right WRONG!! if your phone is disconnected for more than 30 days you have to pay for 2 months of service before you can have service again, that first month is not free and let me tell you... that sucks for most folks who cant afford the travel talk, they think they will save money by just not paying the bill and paying for the service that they will use when they return.
3. there is still a lot of ways to get screwed by this company.... but that ol clock has done caught up with me and I gotta go. I will post the rest at a later date but I will leave you with this fact.
Metro PCS customers pay on an average 1,100 to 1,400 per year per line. Metro PCS in no less expensive than T mobile or Alltel metro just makes the money on everyday slip ups, trips and falls of the consumer. I know that I tore the spelling up.... In a hurry.
