MetroPCS Intros $55 Unlimited 4G Data Plan, LG Motion 4G

MetroPCS might not be as big as the four major U.S. carriers, but it is certainly making some moves to grab people’s attention.

Today, the carrier announced a limited-time offer for a $55-per-month data plan that includes unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data. Families receive additional savings, as the monthly price goes down to $50 per month for the second, third and fourth lines.

MetroPCS did not provide an end date for the promotion, but said that it will go on for the next few months. Also, customers who sign up for the new data plan during that time will be able to keep the $55 plan for as long as they remain with MetroPCS.

In addition to the new data plan, MetroPCS introduced its latest 4G smartphone, the LG Motion 4G. It’s the carrier’s first Android phone running Ice Cream Sandwich, and comes with a 3.5-inch touchscreen and a five-megapixel camera on the back that can capture 1080p HD video.

The LG Motion 4G costs $149. Customers can buy the phone — and sign up for the new unlimited 4G data plan — online and in stores later this week.
