Tips & Warnings

  • This guide is based on me using a Huawei M750 phone. I am currently able to get three free apps: Mobile IM, MetroNavigator and Metro Email. This may vary depending on the type of phone and your location, so if anyone tries this guide out I would appreciate some feedback.
  • Some phone models may not support newer applications, make sure your phone is compatible with the application that you are trying to download.
