Switch to MetroPCS and get 4 lines of unlimited LTE data for $100

MetroPCS, a T-Mobile prepaid brand since 2013, has a tempting offer for anyone willing to ditch a competing US carrier in 2018. If you switch to MetroPCS and port-in your number, you can get four lines of unlimited monthly LTE data, talk, and text for $100 – that’s just $25 per line. You can even add a 5th line at just $25 per month, but not a 6th one. There’s a downside to all this, as tethering (aka sharing your internet connection) is not available. Even so, we’d say this is a nice deal for families.  
If you don’t need four lines of service, MetroPCS …

If you have signed up for one of Sprint’s “Unlimited Freedom” or “50% off” promos, be warned that analysts expect Sprint to begin calling about 300,000 subscribers before the early adopters deals’ end this January, and keep on notifying those whose plan prices are about to get an increase, depending on when they signed up for the goods.
