    Why would Apple even waste their time on making their phone work on a sub-prime network like GhettoPCS?

    Sprint while being a longshot might be the next provider we see it on, I think T-Mobile is more likely though.

    It's marketed quiet a bit to those with sub par credit that can't get a contract with a real provider.

    They are carrier locked to the air carrier. You have to find a way to jailbreak and unlock.

    Please refrain from using the words "official" and "MetroPCS" in the same sentence.

    Does that depend on the baseband of the can used and is the string tethered?

    NO want they want is the career strangle hold to be broken and phones be complete indented of the careers which means any phone any network.

    It is not to much to ask.

    Whoa!

    I like this idea. MetroPCS was $50 a month for smartphones and it trickles down to 35/mo if you pay on time for 18 months.

    I.. like this idea. :D

    You pay for what you get. Coverage is complete crap unless you plan on staying in the same zip code all the time.

    Is MetroPCS still using wap?

    I plan to buy the iPhone 4 CDMA remix just to see whether I can flash this sucker to the Cricket network. And the service isn't so bad.

    The question is: how easy?

    You do know that Metro PCS wants to implement extra data charges for using netflix and other video services that aren't youtube? Even if you managed to get the phone on Metro PCS, do you want to do business with a company that wants to charge you extra for using netflix?

    Probably have to buy a verizon iPhone and a cheap sprint phone that uses data. Then some sort of baseband hack to make the iPhone show up with a sprint ESN that you got off the cheap phone.

    people with sub-par credit shouldn't be increasing their debt load by subscribing to an iPhone plan.

    True, they basicly got no choice than going to either Metro, prepaid or find a sucker to put their credit on the line:D
