Call T-Mobile customer service and ask for the unlock code.

Fair enough however "flashing" and "unlocking" are two different things. If you live somewhere that Metro has only CDMA, "flashing" won't help. If you live somewhere that Metro supports GSM, you would just need an unlock code.

no they don't

metropcs uses a cdma/lte combo

tmobile uses a gsm/hspa+ combo

the frequencies dont matter, its a totally different network technology

...bottom line is, there is no way to use a tmobile device on metropcs

none will, you would need to hope that samsung releases a version to work with metropcs

which is very unlikely to happen, at least not anytime soon

Supposedly Metro uses 1700/2100 in some cities. However if you're stuck with the phone, you could open an account with Straight Talk or Simple Mobile.

FWIW, a friend of mine just got on it in LA...better service with TMo branded Sensation 4G than with the Virgin service and LG phone before it. But with Simple, you should basically get the same as w/TMo. I get this in the Balt/DC corridor w/TMo:



...YMMV.

This is false. I have a US Cellular Note 2 working on metro PCS. (as expected, 3G only though)

Why pay money when the carrier will just provide the unlock code, or one could use the simple unlock method found on the xda forum (and here).
