How and When Can I Upgrade My Metro Pcs Phone?

Metro PCS's best offer is the $60 monthly plan, which comes with unlimited calls, texts, and data. You must check the most suitable program before upgrading. You can get additional features in the Metro PCS plans, which are more affordable and still active.

How and When Can I Upgrade My Metro PCS Phone

Metro PCS merged with T- mobile to form Metro by T Mobile.

As a result of the merger, there are numerous upgrades to the merger, and unfortunately, old phones cannot connect to the band. For this reason, it is necessary to get a phone upgrade, and in support, Metro by T recently rolled out a promotional update offering phones with a $150 discount.

Once you purchase a phone on Metro PCS, you automatically qualify for a promotional upgrade every 90 days after activating the phone, up to four times a year.

There are three ways in which you can activate your phone on Metro PCS;

  1. In-store, meaning you opt to visit a Metro PCS phone store near you.
  2. Online meaning you get help from the Metro PCS phone Activation Site.
  3. On phone call, where you contact the customer care support team on the numbers provided.

Here, you can also enquire about the available plans, devices, and prices in your location.

Before the 90 days limit, users can still upgrade their phones but face the full cost. This can be done at any time through the online application, My Metro App.

Metro PCS offers a swap option for upgrading (BYOD - bring your own device). This means that you can change your phone for a new one at a lesser fee. However, for your phone to be eligible, it must be compatible with Metro PCS.

For non- Metro PCS upgrading to the carrier, it is essential to have the Wireless Number Portability that enables you to retain your old phone number when moving to Metro PCS.
