What to Expect When You Request a MetroPCS Bill Pay Extension

When you request a MetroPCS bill pay extension, the customer service representative will review your account and determine if you are eligible. If you are eligible, they will grant you an extension and update your due date. You will receive a confirmation email or text message with your new due date.

It is important to note that MetroPCS may charge a late fee if you do not pay your bill by the new due date. The late fee is typically $5.00.

Tips for Avoiding MetroPCS Late Fees

If you are having trouble paying your MetroPCS bill, there are a few things you can do to avoid late fees:

  • Set up AutoPay. AutoPay is a free service that allows you to schedule a recurring payment from your bank account or credit card. This way, you will never forget to pay your bill and you will avoid late fees.
  • Request a bill pay extension. If you are unable to pay your bill by the due date, contact MetroPCS customer service and request an extension. They may be willing to grant you an extension, but you may be charged a late fee.
  • Make a partial payment. If you can’t afford to pay your entire bill at once, you can make a partial payment. This will reduce the amount of late fees you owe.
