I've been with MetroPCS for over 5 years. I've been very unhappy with MetroPCS' signals for about a year now. I am thinking of buying my last phone from MetroPCS, the Galaxy S5, and then switch over to T-Mobile with that phone. Are their phones and network systems compatible?

Their GSM/LTE network is the same exact network

Metro stopped releasing new CDMA phones about a year ago

From what I've seen, MetroPCS phones are locked to MetroPCS service. You will probably need to get it unlocked before you can move it to T-Mobile.
