    Did the root as per forum instructions, tested with Root Checker and it verifies the phone is rooted.

    I'm trying to leave MetroPCS and go to T-Mobile. Have pre-paid the account and activated it. Still getting "Service Disabled" when using the T-Mobile sim.

    Are there any additional steps that I need to take? Would be great if anyone can assist.

    Snap.. it's not the same card? Thought it was the same since it looked the same, and T-Mobile brand was T-Mobile 4G.

    So I would need a new phone?

    Haha, they're cheap as hell. 30 bucks a month for unlimited data / text.

    That, and I keep getting yelled at for MetroPCS getting me texts like 5 hours late.

    Goddamn, guess I gotta get a new phone then. Ha.. feels stupid :D

    metro Atlanta area
    Plus the fact that T-Mobile doesn't have LTE (yet) nor CDMA. The Esteem is an LTE + CDMA phone.

    lmfao; they can change the numbers but they have to do it with some barcode scanner or something. Good luck.
