MetroPCS Stores to Start Offering iPhone SE Nationwide

metro-pcs-iphone-se
After its early launch in Florida a month ago, Apple's iPhone SE is finally arriving to more MetroPCS stores. As announced on Twitter by T-Mobile CEO John Legere, the iPhone SE will be rolling out to different MetroPCS stores throughout the country starting this weekend. This means that over 5,000 MetroPCS stores will now be offering various iPhone models such as:


  • iPhone 6s - starts at $649
  • iPhone 6s Plus - starts at $749
  • iPhone SE - starts at $349
  • iPhone 5s - starts at $199

With these various iPhone models available on MetroPCS, the prepaid network is running a promotion that will help you save $60 when you port your number. And as confirmed by Legere himself, the discount is applicable to any iPhone model.

In the past, it took a while for iPhone models to be available on MetroPCS' stores. With the iPhone SE's availability, it's a breath of fresh air to see MetroPCS offering different iPhone models to their customers. This just makes it much easier to get an iPhone through MetroPCS.

    1. You can port from T-Mobile to MetroPCS but you won't get the switcher credit.

  2. Nope has to be AT&T sprint or Verizon port to get the 60 off a phone.

    1. What if porting from an ATT mvno?

    2. Ports from any carrier that doesn't use the T-Mobile network should be eligible for the credit.

  3. In slightly related (T-Mobile) news, T-Mobile has expanded its dubious and illegal data censorship scheme to include games:

    Now, not only will T-Mobile charge you more, or less, depending on if it likes the music or video you watch, it will do the same thing in regards to games.

    It's like Legere is getting arrogant that he has gotten away with breaking the law in this area.

    1. If you can't compete on service or price, you can always try wacky promotions.

    2. Sounds like Cricket.

    3. Cricket completely kills the others on price, and especially service.

    4. Especially their wacky promotions for port ins.

    5. Free data for a shittier Ingress knockoff, which doesn't even compare to the lofty expectations people had based on muh chinese children's adventure cartoon.

      Instead of exploring your town (including remote areas) and meeting/battling both people and NPCs, all while collecting items and trinkets, Go turned out to be absolutely nothing.

      And because there's no trading, we'll never rven be able to follow the exploits of a real life Team Rocket that harrasses children to steal their mons (albeit those robbers were pretty inventive for baiting people with Go).

      All in all, that promo's not worth much when the game, which is a shitty fad based on nothing more than hype and nostalgia, will eventually lose its playerbase to Ingress, new fads/games/hobbies or just plain ol' boredom.

      It's like how the availability of overpriced iPhones means absolutely nothing to budget-minded Android users who actually want some bang for their buck.

      Anyway, T-mobile is offering literally nothing of real value.

      I'd much rather they zero rate all movies, music and games, all while cutting prices on their current phones and plans.

      Once they can actually compete with Cricket on price or geatures, only then is it appropriate to bust out the wacky promos and new flagships without them being a distraction at best or, even worse, a huge waste of everyone's time.

    6. In slightly related iPhone news, Apple has expanded its dubious and illegal iTunes censorship scheme to include games.

      Now, not only will iTunes charge you more, or less, depending on if it likes the music or video you watch, it will do the same thing in regards to games.

      It's like Cook is getting so arrogant that he has gotten away with breaking the law in this area.

    7. Correct, about T-Mobile zero-rating everything. That is what they need to do in order to comply with existing law.

    8. Alicia: Now that is totally untrue. Apple is not a carrier. They do not fine you for using data from companies it dislikes. T-Mobile does that, however.

      Apple has no interest or involvement in this matter. Try to think of appropriate analogies before you comment again, please? A hint: a couple of the other major carriers have such illegal data censorship schemes. But no where near on the level of T-Mobile. Still, you could start with those.

    10. Anonymous: Now that is totally untrue. This article is about iPhones being sold at MetroPCS stores. I was talking about Apple who makes the iPhone and censors iTunes, so it's more relevant than the Binge bickering.

    11. iTunes is Apple's store and I can understand them wanting to control what they sell. I don't think it's any different than a physical record store deciding which music to carry. Plus, Apple allows music side loading so you can put whatever music you want on your iPhone so it's not really an issue for customers, although I can see it being one for the artists who are excluded from iTunes.

      What I really dislike about Apple is that they block app sideloading. That's one of the reasons I prefer Android. But AFAIK it's not illegal for Apple to restrict their devices from installing apps from anywhere but the App Store.

      On the other hand, the FCC has established a Net Neutrality rule that appears to prohibit common carriers such as mobile operators from giving one content provider an advantage over another. Zero rating looks to me to be a violation of the Net Neutrality rule. The FCC hasn't enforced that rule yet. I think they are waiting until after the election.

    12. I think that is rather well described. But perhaps it might be better to say that Zero Rating itself doesn't violate Net Neutrality, but the application of it appears to if it discriminates, and does not apply all data to Zero Rating.

      ----------------

      Now, this is WAY off topic, Dennis. In regards to

      "Apple allows music side loading so you can put whatever music you want on your iPhone so it's not really an issue for customers"

      When I had an iPhone, I tried to do this for hours, and was blocked at every turn. I gave up. But on Android loading music into a directory takes seconds (the phone is attached and used like a USB drive). How did you manage to side-load like this on an iPhone?

    13. My only experience with transferring audio to an iOS device was loading some podcasts on my wife's iPad. It's been a while but as I remember I imported the files to iTunes on her Windows PC and then synced iPad to iTunes using USB. It's more involved than with Android but definitely doable.

    14. Interesting. So if a carrier uses VoLTE, and a plan has unlimited minutes of voice, then legally it must have unlimited data period.

      Delete
  4. Even though I am an Android guy, this is still good news because it shows commitment to the MetroPCS brand.

  7. In slightly related (T-Mobile) news, T-Mobile has good coverage where I live and work, despite dubious and illegal liv=bel.

    Now, not only will T-Mobile charge me less, no matter what music I hear or videos I watch, it will do the same thing everywhere I go during the week.

    It's like Legere is getting so generous that he has gotten away from worrying about libeous detractors breaking the law.

  8. In search of SIM ...July 16, 2016 at 2:30 PM

    I've been trying to find a MetroPCS SIM card on their site, at Walmart.com, ... etc. for a couple of weeks, but they seem to be out of stock everywhere.

    Any thoughts / suggestions?

  9. In search of SIM ...July 16, 2016 at 11:22 PM

    On eBay, when I search for a 'new' nano (MetroPCS) SIM, I can only find one item, which is a pack of 10 SIMs.

    When I went to a local store, I was quoted $29.99. I'm concerned that coverage may be poor where I live. I asked if I could return it in a day if it did not work. I was told 'no', which makes me hesitant to spend ~$30 for it.
