Hot off our launch in Canada just last week, today we’re proudly announcing that TrapCall is now available for MetroPCS, the nation’s fifth largest wireless carrier. MetroPCS covers 90% of America, with its low-cost, no-contract service, which boasts 8.9 million subscribers. All of which we’re hoping sign up for TrapCall!
We’ve been getting requests for MetroPCS support for years, and frankly, we didn’t think it was even possible until recently. You see, TrapCall can’t work without conditional call-forwarding on a users phone. MetroPCS does offer this, however, they have strict limitations on where users can conditionally forward their calls to — something no other carrier in the US has. MetroPCS only allows users to forward calls to “local” numbers. Unfortunately, the definition of a “local” number is extremely vague and there’s no rhyme or reason to how MetroPCS designates a “local” area. Even MetroPCS store employees don’t know the exact definition of a “local” calling area!
We spent some time looking at this limitation, digging deeper into the issue, and we eventually found a workaround that enables us to offer MetroPCS support in almost every area across the country. Sorry that it took so long, but MetroPCS support is finally here! It wasn’t easy, but we think you’ll agree it was worth it.
MetroPCS does not include call-forwarding in its plans, so it’s also important to note that you HAVE to add the call-forwarding feature to your plan BEFORE signing up for TrapCall. This can be done by updating your account at MetroPCS.com.
