How to Get Metro PCS Apps


MetroPCS users have access to hundreds of applications, sometimes called apps, and games available directly from the @Metro store on the phone. Apps include instant messengers, news and weather, music players and currently popular games. Users must have money available in their MetroConnect account to cover the cost of the app or game plus any applicable taxes. A MetroConnect account is automatically assigned to each phone when services are activated, and payments can be applied by calling customer service or when making a payment for monthly services.

  • Click "@Metro" from the phone's main menu. On some phone models, the link is directly at the bottom of the home screen. If "@Metro" is listed on the home screen, press the soft key located below the link to be taken directly to the @Metro store.

  • Click "Catalog." On some phone models, this may be listed as "Store" or appear as a shopping cart icon.

  • Click "Featured Apps," "@Hot," "Search" or any other link from the main @Metro menu. Featured Apps will bring up current promotional copy for MetroPCS services such as navigation. @Hot will bring up the most popular recent downloads. "Search" will allow you to search by keyword or name for apps of interest to you.

  • Click the app you are interested in. A screen will display providing you more information about the app as well as the purchase price.

  • Click "Download" or "Free Unlimited" and a disclaimer will populate, alerting you that funds from your MetroConnect account will be used to purchase the app. This disclaimer will populate even for apps that are free. You must accept the notice in order for the app to be delivered to your phone. If you are downloading an app for a service that is included in your plan, there will not be extra charges for the app placed on your account.

Tips & Warnings

  • On Android phones, users have the added benefit of being able to purchase apps from the Android Marketplace, which is not endorsed or sponsored by MetroPCS.
