    From my understanding, they are basically cloning a phone in this process. Example: They take an existing Boost phone's DEC/MEID and then using some software to get it on the Sprint (whatever CDMA carrier) phone somehow. Then they call Boost customer care to activate the phone. This is popular to do with old or outdated phones.
    Not sure people want to give away their software/secrets so easily, since they are trying to make money by selling you the service.

    Flashing a phone over from one carrier to another carrier without express permission and/or assistance from the carriers is illegal. The only legal method would be to call (or walk into) Metro PCS and ask them if they will do this. Any other method is illegal and we do not condone such conversations here on Android Forums.

    I am going to lock this topic as I do not see how it can continue and not violate the rules of the forum. If anyone disagrees with this decision, please feel free to PM me and we can discuss opening it, again.

    Thank you for your cooperation.
