I've had them past few years. No complaints at all. Highly recommend them.

Merged with T-Mobile. 3rd largest carrier in the states.

Here is a list of all the cell carriers in the states. Makes it easy to shop and compare prices, as well as what networks they use.

Most of the prepaid carriers will not roam from the base network, and most do not offer out of country roaming. Metro PCS is just T-mobile with a bandwidth cap and no roaming. If you can live with those limitations you will be fine.

Depending on where you are in NY, a roaming less back seat ride on T-Mobiles network isn't gonna be a good time

If you must, make sure it's supporting Band 12 and the upcoming Band 66

Are you able to put a prepaid sim in your phone from them to "trial" their local reception over a month.

2nd and third rate carriers the challenge is getting signal outside of target areas.

In the tri-state area MD-DE-PA I got about zero reception so I didn't have it long.

Owned by T-Mobile, which is what I have. Very happy with the service. I think just going directly with T-Mobile is a better deal.
