Question when I go onto the play store to update my apps it says my device is an T-mobile sgh-m919n when it got it from metropcs, so anyhow I tried those steps to unlock the S4 on xda did not work.
Hopefully a unlock guide will come along.
ciao

Sim unlocking a phone without carrier approval is against the law in the US as of January 26th 2013 for any device bought on or after that day. As result, we cannot permit discussion to take place on how to do so. So I'm locking this thread up. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a PM.
