MetroPCS has plucked the simple Samsung Contour (SCH-r250) for its lineup.

The candy-apple-red flip phone has a VGA camera, and both internal and external displays. The Contour is a very simple phone for making calls. Features-wise, it supports Bluetooth, multimedia messaging, and voice commands.

There's also a slew of MetroPCS apps, including MetroWeb for the Internet, e-mail with mail@metro, Metro 411 Directory Assistance, and MetroBackup.

The Contour is available now with MetroPCS for $49 without a contract.
