Does anyone here have metropcs and possibly the samsong code as well?
Currently I have an iPhone plan with AT&T that after all the data and testing fees come out well over a hundred bucks. I also have a Verizon mifi that's around $60 a month that gives me unlimited wifi data where ever I'm at for all my devices.
Ever since I got my iPad I have been taking it with me every place I go and the only thing I use my iPhone for any more is to make phone calls and receive text messages. So I'm thinking I could cut out both my AT&T bill and Verizon bill. Switch to metropcs and get the samsong code (windows mobile phone) with unlimited talk text web for $45/month(all taxs and fees included). This phone also would give me the ability to turn it into a wifi hotspot like I was doing with the mifi from Verizon. I know they don't have 3G speeds yet but they are supposed to be rolling out LTE soon and I think I can just wait. I figure if the speeds really become a problem I can just use the $115 per month I'm saving and get the iPad AT&T data plan (only $30) and I'd still come out ahead.
What do you all think about this idea and have any of you already tried this out?

I know about Metropcs, its a great service for the price but there are limitations. First there is NO seamless coverage, they do NOT have full US coverage. If you do not travel a lot you are okay.

The Code is a great phone but it can NOT be used as a WiFi hot spot.
Wait for the soon to come Metropcs 4G LTE phones they will truly be amazing.
wow your correct about the code not having wifi capability i dont know how i missed that in the specs. It is however capable of tethering via bluetooth. I'm pretty sure the ipad wont connect via bluetooth to get a data connection. Apple locks down the bluetooth so that it doesnt do much.
I may still just end up switching, getting the code for now they got a deal for the rest of the month that gives you $75 off the phone and subscribe to the att ipad data plan until they roll out 4G.
I only travel maybe once or twice in a year so the coverage isnt an issue, They have coverage in my area.
I was thinking of getting metro pcs but I like my storm 2

out here the metro pcs is a big name for they offer the socalled smart phone plan for $.50.oo dollars total for the plan and a lot of the local college kids have smart phone set up here ..so it not bad ..as far as other phone companys customer service i say metropcs is no worse than att or tmoblie out here in central Ca area .
iam thinking about switching to the metropcs smart phone plan once my plan is up with att for everyone one i talked to seams to think that the move by spint to get all one plan for $.69.00 dollars is not going to set well with the other carriers.. so we might see a lower price for the whole smart phone and complete cell phone package for the everything from dateplan to voice and other features for a low price of $.69.oo dollars or less
