    I recently purchased a phone that was locked to Total Wireless, I called to get it unlocked and it was unlocked. I tried to activate it with MetroPCS but was not able to, do you know if that as something to do with the carrier type or could something be wrong with the phone itself? Data and texting worked fine until I went to get the phone activated, then it stopped working. Any ideas as to what I can do?

    CDMA and GSM networks are two types of cellular phone networks and generally if you have a device made for one, it can't be used on the other. In the US, Sprint®* and Verizon run on CDMAnetworks while AT&T and T-Mobile run on GSM networks. Check your carriers on this. Also check your sim card
