Default help for a new phone

Please Login to Remove!

hey guys im new here, also i do not own a blackberry but my gf does. She has an unlock BB with metropcs, however it is dying.

i would like to know which one do you recommend for a decent price, the one Q10 is pretty cool, but it is way to expensive. Also she wants one with the physical keyboard.

i was looking at some bold models, which was around $200 for a new one.

i would love to know one that works 100% with metropcs (right now you can't install anything, and it is very crappy.)

anyways i'm open for suggestions. thank you!

There are no new ones that will work with MetroPCS today. You will need to wait until 12 June, from whence you can use GSM and T-Mobile handsets such as the 9900.

MetroPCS to start using T-Mobile's network and GSM handsets June 12th

Those devices will not be sold in the United States, and the Z5 hasn't a physical keyboard.

hhmm....sounded good, but then i read this:
a service called BYOP (Bring Your Own Phone) will allow customers to bring their own GSM handsets to MetroPCS (excluding BlackBerry models).
so i guess she will have to move to another carrier.

thanks all
