    Hello everyone,

    I would like to sell my LG Esteem and the phone is Rooted.
    Will the buyer have a problem activating a rooted phone with metro pcs?
    What about the SIM that comes with the phone?
    Do I sell it with it, or does Metro provide (sell) a NEW SIM to the new user?

    Thanks a bunch!

    They shouldn't have any problems activating it. Sell it with the uicc card.

    Thanks, is the UICC Card the " SIM" card that comes with it? Sorry for the totally noob question..

    Yes a buyer can activate a phone that is rooted. Leave the card inside the phone. Also make sure you to inform the buyer that the phone is rooted. Some people are not comfortable with a rooted phone or they might accidentally try to do a factory reset and screw up the phone.

    I haven't figured it out yet. Just wanted to know some basic stuff before I commit to selling it.
    I mean, I will sell it, just not yet. Need to find a new phone first...

    P.S. Since MEtro is selling a brand new one for $179....
