  MetroPCS is the First U.S. Provider to Unlock Phones

MetroPCS (PCS) in June 2008 became the first major U.S. carrier to publicly offer to unlock phones sold by a competing service provider. Under the offer's terms, MetroPCS will unlock phones originally sold by Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel (S), Alltel, or any other carrier whose network is based on CDMA (code division multiple access), the technology MetroPCS uses. MetroPCS will unlock the phone and provide a month's worth of calling for $30.

The service is expected to help PCS add 200,000 to 500,000 subscribers in the next 12 to 14 months according to consultancy Frost & Sullivan.

"Early indications show a tremendous amount of interest," says MetroPCS Chief Financial Officer Braxton Carter.

An increase at the lower end of Gandhi's estimate would translate to almost a quarter's worth of growth for a company that added 1 million customers in 2007.

  Low Cost per User

MetroPCS spends roughly $16 per month providing wireless services to its customers. This figure is much lower than the industry average of $26. With high competition in the wireless industry, MetroPCS should be able to compete sufficiently with its low-cost structure.
