    Ive been on metro for years. I've had "metro" phones and UN-locked phones NEVER had a issue. Now with this Nexus 6p I can't get it to work on Metro. I'm on build MHC19I, I've taken the march update. I've got it to work a for a few minutes, but eventually it losses data, cant call, and then doesn't see sim. I've tried 3 sims, no good.

    please help

    I got my 6p almost a week ago and was having the same problems. First you should take the sim out and put it back in, once the boot process is finished, go into settings, go into more under wireless settings, choose cellular networks, then access point names, click on each metro option and delete them all. T-Mobile default APN should appear, then choose the first one, change the name to MetroPcs and the APN to fast.metropcs.com click save and that's it. Everything should work WiFi calling, volte, and everything else. Hope this helps.

    You should be covered under the factory warranty, sounds like a hardware issue.

    Thanks for the reply. I didn't realize the phone does see the sim just doesn't connect to the network fully, or stay on the network.
