I would re-examine what you really need.
Generally, when a person switches carriers, you get rid of a set of problems for a whole new set of problems.
MetroPCS is on their own network. Their coverage is "iffy." They focus on certain spots, i would put them a step below regional carriers at that.
Boost Mobile, DOES run off the Sprint CDMA network, about half. Check the coverage map. The only thing lacking on boost is that you won't roam on other CDMA networks. Sprint has extensive roaming coverages, you won't get that on boost.
Shop around with other carriers, you'd be surprised, prices are pretty good. Sprint has the everything data 450 for $69.99/mo.
