Switch to MetroPCS and Get the Moto E4 for Free (Almost)

moto e4 metropcs

It's surprising to find that MetroPCS doesn't offer any Motorola device in its smartphone lineup. But according to TMONews, this is something that's about to change pretty soon.

Just last month, Motorola announced the Moto E4 as their new budget-friendly device. This very same smartphone is the latest Motorola device that the T-Mobile prepaid brand will offer in its lineup.

The Moto E4 comes with a 5-inch IPS LCD display with a 720p resolution. There is an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone is powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 processor with 2GB of RAM and the Adreno 308 GPU. Onboard storage is 16GB, expandable by up to 128GB via a microSD card. The phone includes NFC, a fingerprint scanner, and a 2,800 mAh removable battery. Upon release, the Moto E4 runs on Android 7.1 Nougat.

As announced earlier, the Moto E4 will be available at MetroPCS starting July 31st. Although it has a retail price of $129, MetroPCS customers can get the phone for only $49 plus tax after instant rebate. And if you decide to switch to MetroPCS, you can get this smartphone for an even lesser price.

For a limited time, MetroPCS is offering the Moto E4 for switchers for $0. While we're inclined to say free, you'd still have to pay for tax. But still, it's a pretty good deal for anyone who's thinking of switching to MetroPCS.

Update 7/20/2017: The factory unlocked Moto e4 has a fingerprint sensor, but the MetroPCS version does not. Some international Moto e4's have NFC, but none of the US models do. - Dennis

  1. What is the cheapest plan that you have to switch to?
    Must it be a port in or can I activate a new line?
    If port in, then which carriers can it not be from?
    For how long must you be with MPCS?
    And what are the unlock policy for this phone?

    1. Is the second, switcher rebate instant or mail in?

      Will offer/deal be in store only or online also?

      Is the model they offer "universal" one good for GSM & CDMA networks (once unlocked)?

    3. MetroPCS plans start at $30/month. Metro will unlock its phones after they have been used on the service for 3 months. You need to port-in to get the Moto E4 free, otherwise it's $49.

  2. Yeah, 'Toe!

    A burner-priced phone that is in general "wow, this a more solid device than the price would suggest.

  3. Amazing deal, just got the E4 and it blows away every phone in the low end segment.

  4. The Moto E4 is a very decent phone. I wonder if they're selling a "locked" version of the univeral carrier model, XT1768 or doing a limited version like Verizon with CDMA-only and LTE Bands 2,4,and 13 - model XT1767PP. It wouldn't surprise me if Moto will produce a new model for them that GSM-only, with LTE Bands 2,4,12 and 66!

    1. I suspect that MetroPCS will be selling a SIM locked version of the XT1768 model with some extra T-Mobile bloatware.

  5. Metropcs is sold through dealers and each dealer sets their own promotion rules. Dealers will try to charge you activation fees for this E4 and also try to force you into the higher priced plans. The phone can be bought unlocked for $80 for amazon prime members

    1. Dealer only? Can't get the deal on line?

    2. How does one buy the amazon prime model Moto E4 for $80 (vs $100).

      Delete
    3. It was a slick deal? type advertisement received two weeks ago for $80 but the amazon website shows $100 discounted from $130 so for most people it would be $130

  8. Tempting but MetroPCS/ T-mobile network coverage just does cut it for me so there is little sense in for my situation buying it to wait 90 days for it to be unlocked.

  9. It appears the MetroPCS variant is only available in Fine Gold color and does NOT have the fingerprint sensor: From MetroPCS site: https://www.metropcs.com/MotoComingSoon.html From Motorola E4 site: ‡ Available colors may vary by carrier ** Fingerprint sensor included on unlocked moto e⁴ and moto e⁴ for Verizon and for U.S. Cellular.

  10. Most websites don't mention if the battery is removable or not. This article says the E4 has a removable battery, I've heard the E4 Plus won't have a removable battery. Can anyone here confirm that the E4 has a removable while the E4 Plus does not?

  11. Does MetroPCS offer VoLTE and/or wifi calling?

    1. They offer both VoLTE and WiFi calling

  12. Those 2015 tier specs don't entice.

    What I'd really like to see are 50% markdowns for the locked versions of higher end devices.

    When they're selling theirs at full retail, there's not even any point to buying them.

  13. The Moto E4 released on Boost today, but it looks as if it doesn't have the fingerprint scanner according to the pictures. Any way you can verify if it does or doesn't? Thanks much.

  14. Gsmarena reported that the metro version was going to not have a fingerprint sensor and switch the snapdragon for a Mediatek 6737 processor. People should definitely hold off and see what it actually turns out to be before getting too excited...

    1. The MetroPCS Moto e4 does not have a fingerprint sensor. You can see that it's missing by looking at the image of the phone on the MetroPCS site (moto e4 Coming Soon).

      I'm not sure about the processor. International versions of the e4 do use the Mediatek 6737 but the US unlocked and Verizon models use the Snapdragon 427. MetroPCS specs do not specify the processor make or model.

  15. Dennis, I'm beginning to wonder just how many variants of the Moto E4 will be out there, by early August! It looks like we're going to need a scorecard to keep track of them all. I was really surprised to see the Moto ad-produced E4 on the MetroPCS site without the fingerprint scanner. I'm pretty sure that my Amazon-ad E4 has a Snapdragon 425, but CPU-Z app says the board in it, is a MSM8937 ...which is the code for a 430. I don't know if the pinouts for the 425, 427 and 430 are the same. A mystery for sure!!
