    Call T-Mobile customer service and ask for the unlock code.

    Fair enough however "flashing" and "unlocking" are two different things. If you live somewhere that Metro has only CDMA, "flashing" won't help. If you live somewhere that Metro supports GSM, you would just need an unlock code.

    no they don't

    metropcs uses a cdma/lte combo

    tmobile uses a gsm/hspa+ combo

    the frequencies dont matter, its a totally different network technology

    ...bottom line is, there is no way to use a tmobile device on metropcs

    none will, you would need to hope that samsung releases a version to work with metropcs

    which is very unlikely to happen, at least not anytime soon

    Supposedly Metro uses 1700/2100 in some cities. However if you're stuck with the phone, you could open an account with Straight Talk or Simple Mobile.

    bro ..

    save your money and stop buying devices that won't work

    nothing will work unless Samsung releases a note made specifically for metropcs

    FWIW, a friend of mine just got on it in LA...better service with TMo branded Sensation 4G than with the Virgin service and LG phone before it. But with Simple, you should basically get the same as w/TMo. I get this in the Balt/DC corridor w/TMo:

    ...YMMV.

    This is false. I have a US Cellular Note 2 working on metro PCS. (as expected, 3G only though)

    Sprint and Verizon Note 2 will work flashed to Metro PCS at 3G speeds. Everything will work.
    Call, Texts, Pic Messages, internet

    Companies are doing it for about $45 - $75

    Why pay money when the carrier will just provide the unlock code, or one could use the simple unlock method found on the xda forum (and here).
