Given that, we also know that means we will be seeing a wide variety of FCC filings dealing with the GALAXY S 4.

MetroPCS as they have announced their latest smartphone offering. The latest handset to join the lineup is the Huawei Premia 4G.

T-Mobile and MetroPCS received the FCC approval back on March 12 which meant that the necessary approvals for a merger were almost complete.

MetroPCS has officially announced their latest smartphone, the LG Spirit. The handset will be available for purchase beginning today and is being touted as having "top-of-line features" and a "sleek and stylish frame."
