Metro PCS / flashing fee free month for who
Metro pcs will gladly charge you $45 to reprogram your cdma phone from other carriers to work with their network. They use a third party company that charges less than $5 to consumers for the same data update to the handset. Imagine what metropcs pays per phone at the bulk rate! Pennies?? Probably.
Here is the catch, they include a free month of service along with the metro flash fee for new customers only!
I am a current customer, to get my free month, I have to go in, sign up for a new account (free just the flashing fee) get my free month with a new phone number, at the end of the month, call them cancel the new account and have the newly ported phone put back on my old account! Why would they make me do this only to circumvent their silly policy, I do not know! I can always use call forwarding to forward the original number to the new phone account for that 30 day period.
They refuse to give me the free month. The $45 that new customers pay for flashing and free month is the same $45 fee charged to existing customers and no free month!!! Unacceptable
The good news: I have their direct telephone numbers to executives at the corporate offices in dallas and regional vp's. They know that I am about to post these numbers for the world to have and use as you wish. They have chosen to not do a thing to keep me from posting this. Here it goes: do you have a gripe with metro pcs??? Call their chief operating officer, or the ceo at the corporate office in texas. He knows I have the number and I will gladly give it to you.
