The application is available on all MetroPCS phones, but certain features are only available on specific phones. There is a monthly fee for the contact back up feature. Certain features also require a subscription to MetroGUARD.
The amount of time required to back up contacts varies depending on the amount of contacts and the type of phone. Only phone contacts are backed up, so contacts through third party accounts such as Facebook and Twitter aren't included.Learn more about Glasses & Contacts
