    I am using my LG G3 on Metro PCS $40. month plan. Speeds are fine (I do not have the numbers) until I hit the ceiling of 500mb (I think). I use wifi mostly so its not a big deal.

    What version of the g3 were you using, I'm interested in buying one. Just don't know what one to buy.

    You'd want the T-MOBILE version for METRO PCS,they're both on the exact same network.

    However,there may still be a few areas that are still on the CDMA network (SPRINT),double-check the METRO PCS stores in your area for coverage/compatibility.

    1st,check here:
    www.willmyphonework.net

    Then,if your phone is SIM unlocked,go to MetroPCS & you're good to go.
    If your phone is not SIM unlocked,request it from the carrier its tied to.
    Generally,if the phone is paid for in-full,you should have no problems getting an unlock code.

    If the phone is not paid off,YMMV,depending on the carrier.Some will give a temporary SIM unlock for international travel.

    You can also buy a SIM unlock code,GOOGLE is your friend here,lot of places on-line to do so.

    If the phone is SIM locked,money is still owed on it & payments are delinquent,eventually the phone will be blacklisted & as a rule of thumb,will not be activated by any carrier.
    A good place to check for phone status is SWAPPA:
    https://swappa.com/esn
    This way,you're assured that you won't be sold a phone still in arrears,but,has yet to be blacklisted,an old trick used by unscrupulous sellers of stolen/delinquent phones.

    Hope this answered any questions you have regarding phones on other carriers.

    Hello,

    An old thread I know but I have a question.
    I have a TMobile G3, it is paid off, sim unlocked ect. I purchased a metro PCS sim, the phone sees the sim and is ok with it.
    I have service bars but no data, cant make calls or do anything.
    Is this just APN settings or is there something else going on I am not aware of?
    Thanks for any help

    You might need to tap on the APN to get it going after you tap "SAVE"when 1st setting-up the new APN.
    A lot of people omit this step when 1st using an APN other than the one intended for the phone,yours truly being one of them.
