T-Mobile today announced that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available in "select MetroPCS stores in Florida" beginning tomorrow, July 1, with a nationwide rollout expected to launch soon. T-Mobile acquired MetroPCS -- which is a prepaid alternative to traditional subsidized carriers -- back in 2013, but this will mark the first time Apple's iPhone will appear as an option on MetroPCS' plans.

MetroPCS is the flagship prepaid brand of T-Mobile US, Inc., and a leading provider of unlimited talk, text and data plans with taxes and regulatory fees included – there are no surprises, period. MetroPCS offers the freedom and convenience of an affordable, no-contract wireless service, riding on T-Mobile’s blazing-fast nationwide network.

Specifically, the prepaid carrier will offer the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus for its customers, available at the price points of $649 and $749, respectively. MetroPCS will also offer the 4-inch iPhone SE for $349 and the iPhone 5s for $199.

Today's news comes over two years after T-Mobile said that it was "very interested" in bringing the iPhone to MetroPCS, without giving any hint as to exactly when it would make the move. Although owned by T-Mobile, MetroPCS runs as its own, separate brand from T-Mobile's "Un-carrier" services.

MetroPCS customers can't afford $649 and $749 phones. Sorry but that's the truth.
I'd say you're quite wrong. Piggyback on T-Mobile's service for a fraction of the price, I left Verizon for MetroPCS and now have a bill that is 75% cheaper...With a 128GB 6S

Want to be a troll somewhere else? Metro PCS probably offers financing or credit cards are used to purchase major consumer electronics.

Sprint used to brand themselves as Sprint PCS back in the late 90s/early 2000s.
I had no idea! Seriously?
