U guys I have the I465 clutch for Boost Mobile, ever since I got this phone it has been giving me so many problems, like for instance I send a text it gets saved in my outbox, or I recieve a text it takes forever for it to download, I dont use the web as much cuz its really slow. Say if im talking on the phone wtih someone I dont recieve a text while im on teh phone or If im texting i dont get a phone call from ne one when they are trying to call me. Seriously I am so sick of these phone crap, Im thinking of getting metro pcs for a month and try to compare cuz honestly ive had it with boost mobile.

Even without a contract the phone's are still traceable. Drug dealers and people that do not want to be traced use the pay as you go phones from 7-11.

I have had both Metro PCS and Boost Mobile. I switched from TMobile as i kept going over my minutes and figured I'd try Metro as it is unlimited for $50 at the time. I got it but I have no service anywhere. Was a real frustration! I then heard about Boost Mobile who was also $50 for all unlimited and decided to switch. I didn't even keep Metro for a month. I've had Boost since and can't be more happier. They run off of Sprint network so I always have service. I like that I can walkie talkie as well. So Boost is the better!

I have Metro PCS. Ive had it for years with almost zero issues. I dont travel though so I dont care about reception outside of the major metro area or areas I may travel to in FL. Phones are so so, I do hanker for a smartphone and metro pcs has ONE and its expensive, but other than that for $40 a month I have everything I need, of course the web access is useless on my phone that isnt html, but I can access my email. I have liked metro pcs and have had actually no service problems like poor reception or dropped calls. It may be "ghetto" but its affordable, so who cares!!

Im currently with T-mobile and have been happy with them for 7 years, but im looking at Metro and Boost now. Im in the Suffolk County, Long Island area and im concerned with Metro pcs and Boost signal strength. I am attracted to Metro pcs $50 smart phone plan.

Anyone on Long Island have either one of these carriers?
Are you a happy customer?

thanks

Well, I am hesitant to decide which is better. Right now I have a boost mobile and it is great! but I am thinking on getting a metro pcs due to the international service, tough I believe boost also offers an extra fee to give the service..somehow I still want to stick with my boost but I dont want to pay extra fees that are outrageous, so, users of international service..what would you recommend me with a great reception and not a crazy price on plan rates...help!!
