Options that you can choose for your MetroPCS phone

A cell phone is a device that you will probably own for some time. You may want to consider the following options before you purchase your affordable new or used Metro PCS phone:

  • Platform: Most Metro PCS cell phones and smartphones run on Windows, Android, or iOS platforms.
  • Screen: The most common display sizes for Metro phones range from 4 inches to 6 inches. Smartphones usually have a touchscreen.
  • Memory: Typical onboard storage for Metro phones is 4 GB, 8 GB, or 16 GB. Other memory sizes include 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB or more. A very small amount of the onboard memory may be reserved for system use and not available for app or media storage.
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi and Ethernet are standard features of many of the phones. Some Metro smartphones have tethering capabilities that allow them to function as mobile hotspots.
  • SIM: Metro SIM card configurations include CDMA and GSM. This is important when you purchase an unlocked device since service providers differ in the type of configuration they support.
  • Files: You can store and transfer data to and from your phone using a micro SD card, a Bluetooth connection, a data transfer cable, or a micro USB port. Many phones are equipped with more than one of these options.
  • Camera: Many phones have front and rear cameras. The front camera is often used with apps like video chat and internet phone calls. The most common image rendering is the 16MP camera.
Save money on your purchase of a Metro phone

eBay's pool of used cell phones is often a great place to find bargains. Purchasing a used phone can be a way to acquire a pricier brand or a phone that is loaded with options at a price that will not break the bank.

Buying a small bundle can also help you to save money on your purchase. This option may be ideal if you intend to set up a family phone plan or simply want to stock up with a couple of spare phones.
