Metro PCS was a service provider that was knows as a flat rate carrier for subscribers roaming in a limited area. Now it has introduced Travel Talk, an add-on to its plans that allows subscribers to roam in any US metro area. If the subscriber travels to another Metro PCS city, there is no additional charge for the calls; otherwise, calls cost between 49 and 79 cents per minute. MetroPCS has a limited service and hence this reflects on their other services provided to their customers.
In the ringtone department, Metro PCS does provide some exciting prospects and options. Their recently introduced sprint PCS Ringtones, PNG images, .MID/. QCP/. MMF/. PMD ringtones are proving to be very popular among subscribers. They have a great treasure trove of ringtones to choose from. Right from the 80’s, alternative, classic rock, Christian, country, Latin pop, national anthems, pop, patriotic, jazz, hip hop, reggae, punk, rock, metal, RNB, salsa, sports, and world music. The subscribers to the Metro PCS mobile service can just log on their official Web site, sign up and get regular updates on the new ringtones available.
Frequently, the ringtone code numbers are sent to the subscribers via text messages. Here is a case of a service provider trying to break the area barrier with the use of ringtones. The only problem with the Metro PCS service is that the use may have to ensure whether the ringtone is compatible with the Metro PCs handset or not. As the awareness levels are not that great, the Metro PCS subscribers will have to shoulder the burden of ensuring the compatibility of the ringtones. But if the ringtones are for free, most people do not mind doing a little bit of extra work.
