DALLAS, Oct. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The wait is over for consumers looking for the Galaxy S ® III from Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) without being shackled to a lengthy wireless commitment.  MetroPCS Communications, Inc. (NYSE: PCS) announced today that it is offering consumers more choice and value as the only no annual contract 4G LTE wireless service provider to offer the Galaxy S III, Samsung's best-selling premium Androidâ„¢ smartphone. The Galaxy S III will be available in select stores this weekend, and in all MetroPCS stores and online at www.metropcs.com beginning Monday, October 22.

Together, the Samsung Galaxy S III and MetroPCS' 4G LTE service plans deliver an unmatched value to consumers unwilling to compromise on handset or service. Priced at $499 plus tax, the Galaxy S III is available on any of MetroPCS' affordable 4G LTE service plans, which range from $30 - $70 per month, including the limited-time promotional plans of 4G LTE for $30 or unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data for $55 per month (taxes and regulatory fees included). When comparing total costs of both the smartphone and rate plans with other 4G LTE operators, consumers can save approximately $1,200 or more over the course of two years (based on MetroPCS' current $55 4G LTE rate plan).

"We are excited to make the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone available to our no annual contract subscribers," said Tom Keys, president and chief operating officer of MetroPCS. "With roughly one million 4G LTE customers already, we recognize that many want a premier smartphone that offers an array of high-end features and runs on our 4G LTE network. Available with any of our 4G LTE service plans, this smartphone offers a postpaid experience at a tremendous value to our consumers."  

Not merely for consumers who demand more affordability than ever, the feature rich Galaxy S III at MetroPCS makes it easy for people to share content and experiences, quickly navigate applications and support a multitude of tasks.
