Metro PCS network problems

Metro PCS offers phone and mobile Internet service, which includes voice mail and SMS text messages to both business and individual users. The service uses CMDA and LTE technology, and from time-to-time service does not run the way you would like it too.

Main issues to tend to be customers not able to access their account login, others have come forward and said, “my Metro PCS phone wont receive texts,” but the worst is when there is a total network outage.

Owned by T-Mobile, MetroPCS offers its service in the United States and is the 6th largest mobile telecommunications network in the country. If you are having issues please do use this as your status page.

    I’ve been having issues with my Metro PCS phone since Saturday,,, I can’t get a perfect connection my phone keep breaking up on a conversation :(:(:(,,,

  • Deb

    I have not been able to connect to MetroPCS service in days. Do a network search for avail networks and get T-Mobile, AT&T, or Verizon to choose from but NO METRO. my 4g hasn’t shown up for days as well. Wth is going on?? We all should be credited on our bills the days metro is down. They have no problem turning you off if you’re late paying bill. Please fix your service!!! We pay for it!! Would like to use it!!!

  • martin

    this is crazy no service, or 2 bars and i can’t call out…I NEVER had this problem with Boost Mobile…I think Im going back to Boost

  • Diane Rodriguez

    My problem is I can hear people but they can’t hear me. Google can hear me and I can play my pandora out loud. The only way I can be heard is to have my earbuds in. My friend has the same problem except she can’t hear or be heard.

  • Steven N Annette Boynton

    I’m in st cloud Florida. The net work has been down for two days. No network found. Can’t find towers. Metro really sucks

  • Aurea Santiago

    In St. Cloud FL I’m frustrated can’t receive calls, make outgoing calls, messaging is off and on. Called MetroPCS and they have not helped at all. Thus has been an ongoing issue for the past week and worsened for past 3 days.

  • Aurea Santiago

    I agree it’s not OK to pay for a service we are unable to use.

  • A. Arneson

    My family is having the same issues in St. Cloud Fl. Can’t make/receive calls or send/receive texts. When we call customer service, they torture us with trouble shooting and “bear with.” Plus, completely deny there is anything wrong with the network. This is beyond frustrating and a total rip-off.

    My phone 4G LTE that is on top of the signal bar keeps turning on and off like every5 seconds. I cant call the number for assistance because i cant use calls texts or internet. Im on Wifi right now and im actually paying for signal so i would expect to get signal for my payment and not this on and off every 5 minutes that doesnt let me do absolutely anything. Im on South California near riverise ans i checked the coverage map and it has good coverage in my area. I just get this company like a week ago please fix it.

  • Jason Lacey

  • Dennis Cunningham

    I’ve had nothing but problems with metros so called data. I get .30 Mbps as a norm, but one morning I got 50 Mbps wtf? I’m one week in with metro and hate the decision so far. Metro, tighten your shyt up before you lose all of your customers to cricket (I’m probably going to go back there)

  • Laura Altenhoff

    My phone has been searching for a network since 2:30 pm yesterday. I have pulled the SIM card, waited 5 minutes and put it back in, I have gone to my network and selected automatic, i have turned my phone off and on again more times than i like to count and still nothing. i am so over it. is anyone else having issues with their connection to the network?

  • Thomas Dilas

    I’ve had the same problem for the past few days

  • Laura Altenhoff

    Went to the Metro store closest to me, they did a refresh on the system and still nothing. I even did a factory reset to no avail. Have you had any success on resolving the problem? They tried to tell me it was a scratched SIM card but even after changing it out there was still no remedy. So frustrating.

  • Denise

    For the last month my service has been terrible. I’ve been with metro for over 13 years now and lately its the worst. My internet and text is slow. My calls cut out and the other end can never hear me talking. I’ve already purchased another phone thinking it would fix the issue but nope. Happening on The new phone as well. Its frustrating not to be able to make a phone call. I have full bars on my signal and it still happens. I’ve called metro and they have “rebooted” my phone ect..but it still continues.

  • Denise

    I’m having the same problem since January. Did you ever resolve the issue? I even purchased a new phone thinking it was the problem but nope still happening.

  • Gigi Harvey

    I’ve been with metro for 6 years and have four other lines with them. The last year has been a nightmare. I have bought four phones for myself at full price in the last year due to issues with no network, not receiving my texts on a daily basis and not being able to answer or call people because there’s nothing but silence instead of a ringing sound. I am at the point now that I am going to take all my total of five phone lines and switch to another company. What’s the point of paying $60 a month per each line when I can’t talk, text or use the internet???!! I’m a very unsatisfied customer and after all these years I thought they would of treated me better than they have. Goodbye MetroPCS!!

  • Kim

    My phone has restarted over 200 times today! Android app updates fail repeatedly… All day! RIDICULOUS

  • Angela J. Massie

    I just made one time payment and I have my daughter on the plan. It seems her phone works but mine will not. I was reading the troubleshooting due to the fact that I was a day late so I had no service it told me to clear data and install updated app. But now I feel I have screwed something up any suggestions?

  • Shah White

    MetroPCS service outage on Southside of Atlanta (at least Hampton & Jonesboro)- Service has been down since yesterday morning. I have MetroPCS on AT&T compatible (not Verizon). Local store* clerk says lots of customers coming to store reporting no service, but her boss won’t allow her to share an outage map nor answer specific questions as to extent of affected outage area. I cannot receive nor send phone and text. My internet works via local wifi connections. It’s been more than 24 hours at this point. Signal strength still shows 2-3 bars which is the same as before outage here and had no problems prior. Anyone else have updates for this area? Feel free to call that *Authorized Dealer to complain about unwillingness to be honest and open to sharing updated info with customers (I’d call them but my phone’s out!):
    *Address: 8053 Tara Blvd, Jonesboro, GA 30236
    *Phone: (678) 610-0143

    Unable to receive calls and texts since 4/9. Can only make outgoing calls. Finally at 330am today I received 29 text messages. So texting now seems to be working, but still unable to receive incoming calls. Phone does not ring. Goes straight to voicemail. Then phone does not register missed calls. And does not tell me there is a voicemail for several hours. This is ridiculous. I only have my cell phone. no landline. I need this phone working 24/7. I should receive some type of credit on my account. Unbelievable!

  • Amy Finch

    I can’t make a text without making a phone call. When I talk on the phone then I will receive 7 texts. This has been happening for the last 2 weeks. Pretty tired of it. If it keeps up I will switch carriers.

  • Richard Jocius

    I’ve been having issues with my internet connection for probably around a month. Anything I need the internet for is extremely slow and I can’t watch videos without them constantly buffering. I called customer service and was walked through a manual cleaning process for my phone. I’ve also been told they are not showing any issues in my area. I use my phone in the same area’s of town everyday.

  • Mary Jo

    I was informed by an employee that we have to upgrade our phones to work with the upgrades Tha MetroPcs has made. Then our phones will work properly again.
