MetroPCS wants you to make the switch. If you've been planning to switch to a new prepaid service, you can head over to the T-Mobile owned company. When you decide to port in your number from another carrier, you just might be the owner of a new Samsung Galaxy J7 for free.
The Galaxy J7 comes with a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display and runs on a 1.6 GHz octa-core processor with 2GB of RAM, an internal storage of 16GB, and a microSD card slot for up to 128GB memory expansion. There is a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with a 1080p HD video recording and a secondary camera in front with a 5-megapixel sensor. Powering the device is a removable 3,000 mAh Li-Ion battery that gives it up to 18 hours of talk time and 384 hours of standby. Upon release, the device runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS.
The device was launched in June 2016 at a price of $229. These days, you can buy this phone for only $99 with a new line activation. If you decide to switch to MetroPCS' prepaid service, this phone can be yours for free; but only if you're not switching from a carrier using the same T-Mobile network. MetroPCS says that you'll need to buy the phone in store and activate it with your existing number. Each account is entitled to 5 free Galaxy J7 devices.
Apart from offering the Galaxy J7 for free, MetroPCS has announced a $50 unlimited promotional family plan they intend to offer for a limited time period. This plan comes with unlimited calls and texts, and unlimited 4G LTE data with 480p video streaming optimization.
When you get a single line under the family plan, your monthly plan will cost $50. If you decide to add more lines, each line will cost $40. This means that if you get two lines under this plan, you'll only have to pay $80 instead of $100. You may add up to 5 lines under the plan, which means you only need to pay $200 per month. Tethering is not included in the plan.
