I'm going to insert a quote from a post I made in the Metro PCS w/N5 thread in this forum:

I actually came from the CDMA Galaxy S3 on MetroPCS and went with the N5.

Here's how I did it: Buy the phone first and then when you have it in hand immediately go to either an "authorized dealer" or Corporate MetroPCS location (you can find the designations on No Contract Cell Phones | Android Phones | 4G LTE | MetroPCS). Tell them you need a Micro SIM card and then give them the phone and have them register the Nexus 5 to your existing account. Remember you will not be able to swipe SIM cards between your old Galaxy S3 as it uses different band technology than the Nexus 5 does. Once done, you're good to go!

Took 15 minutes, and around 15 dollars for a new SIM card for me...
