I have often wondered why the prices vary so much between the 2 services. Metro will offer a Zmax pro for -$100 and T-Mo for $179, or the LG Aristo is -$100 on Metro...-$60 with instant rebate, but T-Mo wants $150. I know these are lower tier phones, but why the huge difference? I know Metro is prepaid, but T-Mo is usually postpaid, but even with buying outright at full price it''s always more expensive on T-Mo.
Are there features on phone can do that the other cannot?
Metro will just have different deals at different times, T-Mobile will also have deals, often better, just less often.
