MetroPCS announced plans effective today that will allow customers to benefit from unlimited Rhapsody music downloads for an undisclosed time. The company is packaging the service alongside their $60 p/month unlimited talk, text and surf plan. In addition, the bundle plan includes visual voice mail, MetroNavigator, and Pocket Express. In order to take advantage, the purchase of one of their two Android devices is required.
Since information on the deal is still fresh and somewhat limited, I took the opportunity to stop in one of their retail stores this afternoon to grab some literature and ask some questions. The service will be available on a stand-alone app and while details are a little fuzzy on how long the free Rhapsody service will last, one employee hinted in the 2-3 month range.
