MetroPCS iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Launching In Limited Quantities At First
Earlier this month, it looked like MetroPCS will be adding only the iPhone 7 to its prepaid smartphone lineup on September 23. However, T-Mobile has confirmed to TmoNews that both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be launching on this prepaid brand. Also, the carrier said that both MetroPCS iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in limited quantities initially.
