    Metro PCS is a CDMA network, while the Sidekick runs on GSM(sim card), so I believe it is impossible to run the SK on Metro. Perhaps don't take my word for it, but I'm pretty sure this is the case.

    Well, from what I understand, phones that run on Verizon and Sprint would be more likely to be flashable to Metro PCS. Tmobile and AT&T phones are supposedly just incompatible with CDMA networks. So yeah, the Verizon Droid might be a possibility.
