MetroPCS subscribers can now rejoice with the Windows Mobile 6.1 powered Samsung Code. The handset also known as the SCH-i220, is full of Microsoft suite of tools including contacts, calendar, tasks, notes, voice recorder and Windows Live.
The Code also features the optional WizPro interface that enables users to personalize their home screen and create shortcuts to the regularly used features such as missed messages, calendar appointments and others.
Roger D. Linquist, president, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of MetroPCS, remarked, “We are excited to add another smartphone to our lineup of the latest handsets.

This is just another example of how MetroPCS is providing customers with more, all while maintaining the economical unlimited, flat-rate service that they can expect from MetroPCS.”
