13 yr. old granddaughter has Metro PCS and for her it is working great and as she texts non-stop! However, we purchased a Mororola Sliver L-7 when we started her at Metro and it is virutally falling apart almost a year later. Question: Must I purchase a new telephone from Metro PCS or will they let me purchase what I want and then bring it to them to set up her account on? Anyone know? Sure would appreciate any help. Thanks.
