How Does MetroPCS Billing Work?

As mentioned, Yes. MetroPCS offers a payment extension or grace period. The grace period is usually 48 hours. Within the grace period, you will fully enjoy your services on the network with no issues.

Your account will continue to run normally if you pay your bill within the grace period. When you request a payment extension, MetroPCS has the right to grant or refuse your request.

What Happens If I Don’t Pay Your MetroPCS Bills?

If MetroPCS fully suspends your account, you won’t make or receive calls or texts on your number. Also, you will have to pay a reactivation fee to reactivate your number after MetroPCS suspects or deactivates your account.
