MetroPCS states that it offers such services as blocking texts and calls, music subscription downloads and a ringtones subscription, mobile hotspot services, international calling and texting, and handset protection. Customers also receive a history of their outbound calls going back three months.
MetroPCS offers tiered Mexico calling plans on its site. A $10 plan gives customers 1000 minutes to Mexican mobile phones. The plan also allows unlimited access to Mexican landlines and 200 call minutes and texts when customers are in Mexico. The $5 plan gives customers access to landlines at 200 locations in Mexico, but users get unlimited texting to most countries around the world, and the same international text plan applies to MetroPCS tablets. A $10 world calling plan permits unlimited access to the landlines of more than 75 countries.
Users can get a mobile hotspot plan for $5 a month, reports the MetroPCS site. This service allows users to connect to many devices and access the Internet when there is no Wi-Fi spot. A mobile hotspot plan allows customers to tether their phones to another device. An enhanced feature gives customers the option of adding 1GB of data to a mobile hotspot plan for an additional $5 under the Data Top-Up plan, and this plan applies to data usage from normal phone use.
