Why Do You Need an Extension?
There are many ways of paying your Metro PCS bill. These methods include payment through myMetro, through in store methods and even AutoPay where Metro by T-Mobile automatically uses the saved payment method to automatically withdraw from your account. Whichever the case, if a payment is not made by the due date, Metro PCS will suspend its services. This is an understandable action. However, sometimes it is easy to get caught up and forget to pay your bills. Or sometimes you just might not be in the financial position to do so. An extension on the due date for the bill would come in very handy.
Can Metro PCS Give You an Extension on Your Bill?
With the new release for the Metro PCS Application for Android, Metro PCS says that qualified subscribers can now use the application to get an extension on their bill in the event that they are suspended. The extension is however only 48 hours long. To get the 48-hour extension, you will have to wait until your phone is suspended. Once this happens, you need to then contact the Metro customer service using another Metro phone. An alternative would be to simply go to any Metro store to get additional help.
You should note that the 48-hour extension only includes text and phone services. You will not be able to use your mobile data.
