    MetroPCS will merge with T-Mobile in a few months and will likely carry the iPhone. I'm pretty sure an unlocked iPhone will work too.

    After you hit the data limit, MetroPCS will downgrade you to 3G.

    This could be great if T-Mobile's LTE coverage improves and expands.

    Yeah, MetroPCS is CDMA - which means an unlocked iphone won't work on the network. No bring your own device for them. As far as I understand, T-Mobiles plan is to get Metro customers off the CDMA - switch them to TMo GSM and use Metros' towers to acquire easier LTE infrastructure...

    MetroPCS is complete junk. There's a reason why it is so cheap. It's because the service sucks. Barely works around here in Boston

    yeah tell me about it. In NYC they are one of the worst, if not THE worst

    T-Mobile is aiming for 100 million pop LTE by mid 2013 and 200 million pop LTE by the end of 2013.

    In the end, you get what you pay for. If Metro PCS has good coverage where you are then go for it. However, I wouldn't base your decision on what coverage you expect *might* happen after a merger with T-mobile.
