Could changing the simcard mess up my MetroPCS service?

    Currently I'm with MetroPCS. I have an LG Motion 4G with according to this thread, it can be used with other carriers.

    I've never tried to switch carriers with a phone before. If I still currently have service with MetroPCS, could it mess up my service with them if I put other simcards in my phone?

    I'm interested in testing out other carriers before I make any commitment.

    Since this device and MetroPCS only run on CDMA network you would only be able to switch to other CDMA networks.

    You would also probably need to get permission from those networks to put your phone on them.

    The main CDMA networks are Verizon and Sprint.

    And i am pretty sure you need a Verizon registered device to be put on Verizon.

    Good info. Perhaps I could go with one of the other dozens of CDMA providers in the US. List of United States mobile virtual network operators - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    *Boost Mobile, Credo Mobile, EcoMobile, i-wireless, kajeet, Mingo, Wireless, PlatinumTel, PrepaYd Wireless, Ready Mobile PCS, Republic Wireless, Ring Plus, Inc, TracFone Wireless, Virgin Mobile USA

    So I was wondering a simple question, if anyone has the answer-
    Could changing the simcard mess up my current MetroPCS service?

    It won't as long as you go to a CDMA provider and your device is unlocked. Everything should be fine.
