Perhaps you like your MetroPCS phone but wish to change your service provider. There are many methods for unlocking your phone so that it may be used with any carrier.
MetroPCS modified the way some Android phones might be unlocked from their network back in 2014. MetroPCS users may now request and apply a mobile device unlock straight from the device by pre-installing a Device Unlock App on the phone.
Why should you unlock your Metro phone?
Unlocking a phone serves two purposes. The primary and most important reason to unlock a Metro phone is to switch carriers, as previously stated. However, unlocking a phone allows you to use it worldwide.
You may utilize an international SIM card to access local networks while on vacation instead of incurring exorbitant roaming costs, just as you would when switching networks with a U.S. carrier.
How To Unlock Metro Phone, follow these steps:
Make sure your phone satisfies Metro’s standards for unlocking.
For non-Apple old devices from the past:
In your phone’s Applications folder, look for the Metro unlock app.
Restart your phone after selecting Permanent Unlock.
The Device Unlock App is the only method to remove a Samsung, LG, Alcatel, HTC, Huawei, Kyocera, Motorola, Sony Xperia, or ZTE phone from the MetroPCS network.
If MetroPCS has pre-installed the Device Unlock App on your smartphone, which may be located under the Applications icon, you can unlock your phone by following the instructions below:

For iPhones and newer devices, follow these steps:
To get an unlock code, contact Metro via phone or in person.
Wait for an unlock email and then follow the instructions in it.

Choosing a good phone is not an easy thing to do. Price always matters and we always end up sacrificing one good feature or more.
Good phones come in the shape of a flagship and they are oftentimes too expensive. Budget phones exist unfortunately, they only offer a good camera and not enough battery life or the other way around. We can’t seem to have the best of both worlds, especially in the budget phone department.
Good thing, those days are now over. And luckily, Motorola has created the phone that meets all of our needs.
And yes, that beast is the new Motorola Moto e5 Plus. Whether you game or vlog, this phone should be number one on your list.
For starters, it has a 12MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera, but that’s not the most amazing thing about the Moto E5 Plus.
It has a whopping 5000mAh battery! For a budget phone, this is definitely a road less taken, and Motorola Moto E5 Plus is a certified trailblazer.
This phone also comes with 6” HD display meant for less scrolling, more fun, and wider gaming screen.
Camera and battery life? 100! You got the beast and the beauty all in one phone.
You’ll never have to compromise about the specs and the price, because you can get this phone from MetroPCS for only $49 if you port over. The phone comes locked to them, but you can easily have a temporary or permanent unlock using the Device Unlock App.
You’ll never be sorry buying the phone outright because it’s only sold for $209.
Moto E5 Plus: A Certified Beast
This phone will always come handy for when you are travelling. Say goodbye to the not-so-nice sight of charging in the airport or losing battery when you are lost in a new city. You will never have to look for an outlet and charge every hour just to make sure you have enough power until you arrive at your hotel.
For a gamer, a huge battery is great, but having a huge RAM is even better. Well, the Moto E5 will never disappoint you with a 3GB of RAM and 1.4GHz Octa-core processor.
This beastly phone will give you both the power and the speed even for an entire day of gaming.
And the phone is designed with an ergonomic weight; it looks and feels so compact you can’t even tell it has a huge battery in it.
Though it has a big battery, charging for 6-8 hours is not necessary because you only need 15 minutes to use it for another 6 hours non-stop.
All thanks to the TurboPower charger on board.
Moto E5 Plus: A Budget Beauty
You can also unleash your vlogger-wannabe side with this phone.
The 12MP Rear Camera with laser autofocus technology can help you capture sharp, bright, and livelier photos or videos in an instant.
Whether you are shooting inside your room or in any dark places, this phone will still encapsulate all the beautiful details of your selfie in the best light because of the 8MP front camera that has its own LED flash for the low-light environment.
Now, you don’t have to worry about blurry pictures, you can take them anywhere and anytime!
Though it is truly a big phone, it still comes handy and can be use with one hand because it has a slim design that can fit in your pocket or palm. The 6in edge-to-edge screen is packed with a Max Vision display that will help you enjoy the “crazy-wide” landscape view.
One of the things we so love about the Moto E5 Plus is the fingerprint scanner. You don’t always see a budget phone that offers all of these convenience!
If you think that’s all that this phone can offer, well, there’s more to that!
Both the Moto E5 Play and E5 Plus are water-repellent; you don’t have to worry about a little splash of water.
Don’t get it wrong for being waterproof, this phone can handle sprinkles, but not submersion to water.
If you plan on taking a lot of photos, this phone can house all of them. It is packed with a 32GB internal memory and has an expandable external memory of up to 128GB via microSD.
Last but not the least, this phone runs on the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. You get to enjoy all the beautiful features the new Android system has to offer, like a split screen when you have to do too many things like play and text people at the same time.
Now that’s what you call a phone! If you want this phone, grab one through MetroPCS and enjoy the life without worries.
TL;DR: With MetroPCS, you have two different unlock options; Temporary Unlock and Permanent Unlock. If you otherwise want to unlock it temporarily for travel, you can do it on your phone with the Mobile Device Unlock App (Android). On the other hand, iPhones and other unsupported Android models will be unlocked using a sim unlock code. To unlock your phone permanently, you have to qualify with the MetroPCS unlock requirements. Third party unlock providers (UnlockBase), however, do not have any unlock requirements to get your phone unlocked.
Today, we will discuss your unlock options and the methods to get it done. Aside from discussing how to get it unlocked with MetroPCS, we will also tell you how third-party unlock providers like UnlockBase, help you unlock your phone in a fast, easy, and convenient way. So, stay tuned!
How To Unlock with MetroPCS Customer Service
The MetroPCS customer service team can help you with unlocking your phone, and they will provide you the information you need to get it done. However, in order for you to unlock your phone through them, your account has to qualify with their unlock policies.
To save you time from calling them, we have prepared a bullet list for you, for a complete and more thorough look you can also check out MetroPCS Phone Unlock Policies.
Here is a quick run-through of the MetroPCS Phone Unlock Requirements:
Must be a MetroPCS phone
Must have had active service for 90 consecutive days from phone’s activation date.
Warranty exchange handsets, 90 days starts with the original phone’s activation date and not the activation date of warranty exchange handset.
That’s practically the only thing you should take note when you want to unlock your phone through the MetroPCS customer service.
If you think you don’t qualify with their 90-day active status, thankfully, you have another option, and that is third party unlock providers like UnlockBase. UnlockBase won’t ask or require of you anything that is specifically alike the MetroPCS policy.
However, just like any third party unlock service providers, UnlockBase also have a specific set of pre-unlock requirements to make sure that your phone is permanently unlocked successfully. When these pre-unlock requirements are met, you are guaranteed of a refund in the unlikely event that the UnlockBase unlock code/method doesn’t work.
How To Unlock Through UnlockBase (Third-Party Unlock)
UnlockBase is one of the pioneers or the phone unlock service industry. With over 5 million unlocks and over a decade of service, the UnlockBase team has built a strong league of suppliers that are helping them innovate the unlock process to make it easier and also help them reach more people all over the world.
There are a lot of phone unlock service providers out there, but we will be basing the steps and processes on UnlockBase. The unlock process is virtually remote and most probably won’t need much of human intervention.
These are the most important unlock requirements we set before we unlock your MetroPCS phone. We do have a broader list than this that is specific to the device that we are going to unlock since we have 3 different unlock categories for MetroPCS.
Only a select set of Android devices has the Mobile Device Unlock App pre-installed, and you can use that app to have your phone unlocked remotely without calling MetroPCS customer service. And the other Android phones that’s not supported by the app will be unlocked using a SIM Unlock Code.
3 Ways To Unlock A MetroPCS Phone:
Through the Mobile Device Unlock App
Through A SIM Unlock Code
Now, it’s very easy to distinguish which way you should proceed because there are only a few phone models under the first option. If you are using an iPhone, we have a completely different process for unlocking that. On the other hand, if you are using any other device beyond the list we will provide you below, then your only way to unlock is through a SIM Unlock Code.
As mentioned earlier, these are the ONLY set of phone models supported by the Mobile Device Unlock App. If your phone is in any of the devices listed above, then here’s what you need to know about how to unlock it.
How To Use The Mobile Device Unlock App
The Mobile Device Unlock App is an app that lets you automate the unlock process, eliminating the need to enter an unlock code in the Sim unlock process. It lets you temporarily or permanently unlock your phone with just one tap. We have a different article on how to use The Official Mobile Device Unlock App, but we’ll go through a quick run-through about the app here.
As mentioned earlier, it’s already pre-installed on the supported MetroPCS phone models. The app will also uninstall by itself if you’ve successfully permanently unlocked your phone.
If you are ready, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use the Mobile Device Unlock App:
Turn ON mobile data. Make sure your 3G/4G/LTE/WiFi signal is strong and stable.
On your Application list, find Device Unlock. This could be under MetroPCS folder.
Choose Permanent Unlock Type.
Restart phone to remove alert in the notification tray.
Take note that it is important to ensure that your phone is able to communicate with the MetroPCS server for the unlock process to be successfully finished.
Possible Unlock Errors:
1. “Server Error” – it means that your phone isn’t connecting to the server because you have a weak/bad internet connection.
2. “Unlock Failed: This mobile wireless device is not eligible for unlocking. For Device Unlock eligibility details, please go online or contact Customer Care” – this means that your phone is connecting to the MetroPCS server but it’s not eligible for unlock according to the carrier’s requirements.
If you want to unlock your phone via the Mobile Device Unlock App, click on the button below.
If you are using an iPhone or another Android device that isn’t supported by the mobile device unlock app, then you have to unlock your phone using the usual unlock process we do here in UnlockBase, and that is through a SIM unlock code.
All we need is your phone’s IMEI or serial number for us to be able to calculate the code. You can check your IMEI by dialing *#06# on your phone. For this, the unlock method will depend on the make and model of the device you are using.

UnlockBase has a committed and highly knowledgeable tech support team that’s ready to answer your questions and walk you through the unlock process when you need it. Our customer service and tech team are available 24/7 to help you.

If you still haven’t gotten yourself a new phone or if you are looking for a cheap steal, then MetroPCS has got something for you. ZTE Avid 4 is out in MetroPCS and just like its brothers in the ZTE family, it is mid-ranged price and a perfect budget phone for anyone who wants value for money more than fancy brands or flagships.
The phone comes at a bargain price of $39USD (*after all discount and rebates) without contract and you can easily pick one from any MetroPCS stores near you. If this phone doesn’t convince you enough or if you are looking for more options you can take a look at these MetroPCS Phones of 2017 Under $100USD.
You’ll be amazed how far your one hundred bucks is going to get you, but for now, let’s take a look at what ZTE Avid 4 has got to offer by comparing it to other phones in the budget phone department.
13MP rear autofocus w/ LED flash camera and 5MP wide-angle LED flash
8MP autofocus main camera+2MP front camera
5MP autofocus rear camera + 2MP front camera
Up to 32GB
Up to 128GB
Up to 128GB
23.5GB user-available memory
3.5GB available user memory
10.9GB user available memory
ZTE Avid 4 isn’t a show-stopper type because it doesn’t have a glossy glass front and back cover, but what it boasts instead is a big 5” screen with an FWVGA display. It does look like a mini ZTE Blade Z Max, standing at 6”, which you can get at a meager *$99 (after all discount and rebate offers).
It is 4G LTE enabled which runs perfectly on the fast MetroPCS network. The biggest caveat on this specific model is that it comes only in one color – BLACK. On the other hand, if you are fan of headsets, this phone will not disappoint you because it has a 3.5mm headphone jack sitting at the top.
Unlike most mid-range phones, this ZTE Avid 4 doesn’t have any fingerprint sensors for security so you’ll have to stick with the basic password or pin to lock your phone.
The ZTE Avid 4 also has a clean and spacious dock that gives you the basic apps and features like most Android devices. It’s running on Ice Cream Sandwich and it has 1.1GHz Quad Core Processor, so you can consider that it is fast, interactive, and smooth when using multiple apps at the same time.
The phone’s Settings is organized just like any stock Android. It has 32GB ROM and 2GB RAM which gives a pretty decent amount of storage for all your pictures and a seamless music and video streaming, and mobile gaming. The internal memory is unfortunately not expandable via MicroSD Card but only up to 32GB.
The phone is also pretty straightforward to use – that is if you are used to using Android.
Camera and Battery Life
The battery life in the ZTE Avid 4 is pretty disappointing because it only has an average of 9 hours talk time from its 2520mAh battery. And compared to the ZTE Blade Z Max it does come almost half the battery life because it has a whopping 4080mAh and can handle up to 31 hours of talk time.
You can use its USB port to charge it or in transferring data from your phone to your computer or vise versa.
This phone isn’t really the best in the mid-range camera department but it prides a few features that you might also like. It has a 5MP autofocus main camera. You can take videos in Panorama mode and you can also take photos while recording a video at the same time.
Other than this, the camera on this one is pretty average and wouldn’t stand out in the tight mid-range or budget phone competition. It is not even on par with other ZTE released mid-range phones. However, considering the price, it surely is a bang for the buck.
The ZTE Avid 4 wouldn’t really stand out compared to its other ZTE brothers nor to other mid-range phones out there. Nonetheless, considering its specs and features, we can safely assume that it does more for its price tag.
Want to Unlock Your ZTE Avid 4?
An unlocked ZTE Avid 4 phone is a good gift for yourself or for a friend. It could serve as your budget back up phone or you can give it to someone who is using a different network or maybe living in a different country.
UnlockBase can unlock your ZTE Avid 4 phone in a fast, easy, and convenient way. You wouldn’t have to break the bank or send your phone over to get it unlocked. If you’re ready to unlock your ZTE Avid 4 now, you can go here.
MetroPCS is the home of the best smartphone bargains. Performance-wise, you’ll never get left behind because it uses the T-Mobile Network. You get the best phone deals, for a cheaper price, with a fast network, and no lock-ins! You can even get mid-range MetroPCS smartphones for just under $100 upfront!
If you’re wondering which one’s the best deal for your needs, we have compiled 6 of the best smartphones under $100 that MetroPCS released for the beautiful year of 2017.
For absolutely zero upfront charge, you can get your hands on Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime. It has Samsung’s powerful OS and simple interface for a lesser price. It might not be the brand’s flagship, but it still amass phone features that naturally makes it a steal for a Samsung.
You have 8MP front camera and 13MP rear camera that lets you record in 1080p, which means that you’re getting awesome selfies and groufies on this one. It comes in two different storage sizes, 16GB or 32GB, but either way you can still expand it to a massive 256GB because it is microSD expandable.
You have 3GB RAM for all things you want to do with your phone, and that also means the fluidity of your tasks and the responsiveness of this phone under heavy usage is just like that of the iPhone X. Nope they aren’t the same in so many ways, but you can at least multitask with your Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime and not have any issues at all.
It is heavier than the Samsung S8, at 167g but they are almost of the same dimensions, except of course the height, because the Samsung S8 stands at 6.2 in tall. The phone comes in two different colors; black and gold, and feels premium to hold.
You also get a whopping 3300mAh which means you have batteries that can last you the day or even more than that. Finally, you have 3.5mm headphone jack sitting at the top, which should be the number one reason why this phone is sold out.
LG K20 Plus is a cool, budget phone that has good camera and reliable hardware. It isn’t as big as the other mid-range options but it fits snugly on your hands and you can obviously operate it with one hand.
If you are worrying about how your fat fingers are going to deal with the smaller screen, don’t worry because you can adjust the keyboard’s layout and height. It’s highly customizable, LG simply made it that way.
It also has fingerprint sensors, a massive storage of 32GB, and 2GB RAM. It’s microSD expandable so storing data won’t be a trouble. The front camera isn’t that bad at 5MP, but the rear camera is 13MP and can shoot 1080p. It also allows you to take your selfies with simple hand gestures. The battery isn’t as big as everyone else, but it can still last you a day depending on your usage, though.
LG K20 Plus processor is also pretty fast so you can still multitask on this phone seamlessly without lags or anything. Not impressed? Let’s get onto the next.
ZTE Blade Z Max boasts a dual camera, a fingerprint scanner, a 6 in display and a gargantuan battery. If you are tired of whining why expensive flagship device don’t have everything, well, now you can stop.
For only $129 (but you can buy this at MetroPCS for $99 upfront), you get all the features you’ve been looking for in a phone. You get the biggest battery which is a whopping 4800mAh! You’re not going to expect a premium build though, but this phone sure is bigger when compared to other pricey flagships like Samsung Galaxy S8.
It has a headphone jack and a USB type C charging port, and we’ll give it two extra bonus points for having them. The 32GB storage is expandable with microSD, which means you can have it up to 256GB of memory for all your lovely pictures, videos, and adventures.
The fingerprint scanner at the back is also fast and accurate and that means you are eliminating the hassle high-end phones are notorious for.
ZTE Blade Z Max also has 2GB RAM and although it runs on an underdog Snapdragon processor, it gives you no lag problems when multitasking on your phone. It’s Split Screen feature also works seamlessly. There are also shortcuts that allows you to launch major phone features, like the camera, very easily but we’re not on the best part yet.
The camera on this phone is a beast! You don’t expect to see a dual camera on a budget phone, but this one has it. Ok, this camera isn’t like what high end phones have, so don’t get your hopes up that much. However, considering you get a 16MP main camera and 8MP front camera for selfies, this is more than just your average budget phone.
It’s practically the best budget phone and it’s definitely worth it for the price.
Thought ZTE has killed it with Blade Z Max? Not just yet. You’re about to meet the biggest budget phone under $100. Yes, you read that right.
For only $99, you can have a very sleek, well-designed and high-performing phone that can last you a day, give you wonderful videos and images, and do multitasking like high end flagship phones do.
It has a huge screen being 6” at that, and it has 1080p resolution which makes it all the more lovely; you wouldn’t assume it’s a budget phone on a first look. It also has 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, which means you can finger your tasks very easily. It also has a microSD slot so you can add more memory.
Just like its brothers in the Blade series, it has a fingerprint scanner seated at the back, which is accessible, fast, and accurate. It also has a USB type C charging port and a headphone jack (I hear you say Yehey!)
The phone isn’t the best at the camera department, but what do you expect from a budget phone? Nonetheless, you are still getting that extra level of security with the fingerprint sensor which you don’t normally see from budget phones.
If you already love MetroPCS, you’re not going to sulk over the fact that ZTE Z Max Pro is only available through them.
There’s probably a good reason why LG named this particular model Stylo 2 Plus and bet you know the reason why.
The LG Stylo 2 Plus isn’t the cheapest phone nor the best budget phone there is, but it flaunts an attractive feature that people always wanted the Samsung Note 8 for. Yes, you can write on the screen and instantly jot down notes without even the need to turn it on!
In addition to that you can also turn your handwriting into a calligraphy and make Quick Memos using the stylus. Bet you’ve so many things you want to do with this feature.
It also has this Pop Scanner feature that lets you trace and crop an object in an image so you can view it straight on. Aside from being able to write, you can also draw with your stylus pen. That’s so clever!
The LG Stylo 2 Plus also has a rear fingerprint scanner which is fast and easy to reach, that also lets you confirm payments using your phone. Don’t worry about running out of battery because this one is packed with a 2900mAh battery and you wouldn’t need charging until you hit your home doorsteps.
You also can split the screen in two, so you’re not getting a headache running several apps at the same time. And since it has 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage (expandable up to 2TB), switching back and forth to different apps would be a breeze to do.
Just like most of the budget phones, it isn’t the best in the camera department, but it does have features that you’d love to have when you’re taking selfies; like the Gesture Shot, Selfie Light, Beauty Shot and many more.
Again, it doesn’t boast awesome cameras but it’s not going to disappoint you being in the budget phone category. This one too, is only available through MetroPCS.
If you’re up for another $100 phone MetroPCS has got another one in store for you. Standing at 5.5 in, this budget baby will never compromise every cent you spent on it because it has a 13MP camera, 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal memory, and 3000mAh battery. You’re going to love every single bit of this phone to pieces.
It has a 3.5mm headphone jack (for all you headphone lovers out there), and it has a micro USB type of charging port. The best feature of this budget phone is the ability to save up to 5 different fingerprints for 5 different purposes; so you can launch 5 different apps easily using your fingerprint. Genius.
It’s memory is also microSD expandable up to 128GB so you can save more awesome selfies. It’s built to look like a flagship, but it’s seriously more than five times cheaper than any high end phones you see nowadays.
Just when you thought Alcatel is done with surprises, the A30 Fierce is also programmed to connect with Amazon Alexa. You can now call it a connected home for all the convenience you are going to get with a budget phone from MetroPCS.
With this phone, you can do everything with convenience!

How do you know you’ve already purchased the right phone for your needs? We know! That’s when you get to do everything with your mobile – bring it whenever, wherever, and snap the best shots to treasure through time. Our pick? The Samsung Galaxy S7 from MetroPCS. Not only will you get high-quality specs for your mobile phone, but you also get own it in the best deal yet. Here are its priced details that you shouldn’t miss!
Display and Design
If we’ll talk about design, there’s no way you can go wrong with Samsung products. They are premium, smartly designed, and are technically adept with the latest technologies out there.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 sports a similar display with its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S6, especially with the AMOLED screen size and resolution of 5.1 inches and 2,560 by 1440 respectively. This time, however, the brightness volume has been increased to a significant level – thus, making the S7 screen even more highly visible for users.
It also appeared the same in terms of the rear panel’s design, only that S7 featured a thicker, more rounded, narrower back than that of the S6 to house a slightly bigger battery and avoid the camera lens from looking bumpy. Aside from that, it still has the same metal-glass unibody overall, along with Samsung’s signature home button at the front, a Micro USB charging port, and a sensor.
Another point about S7’s design is that it came with Samsung’s waterproofing technology rated IP68. This meant that the device is fully protected from water spills, splashes, or dunks that can either slow or damage regular phones.
When it comes to camera quality, Samsung never fell behind. It has the right camera specs to achieve a picture-perfect shot at any time of the day.
The S7 has stepped up its game with a dual-pixel rear camera, thus, making low-light pictures easier to capture. It has integrated a 12MP camera despite the S6 being 16. You might have wondered, why? The 12MP camera included larger, higher number of focus pixels enabling the said camera to focus faster and perform better in low light.
It also featured a CMOS 5MP front camera for snapping smooth, post-worthy selfies. If you have a problem taking selfies in dark places, you may also make use of its Selfie Flash mode to capture your selfie shots better.
With regards to its video shooting capability, the Samsung Galaxy S7 can carry a 4,000 resolution at 30 fps from its rear camera and a 1080p from the selfie, which only means one thing: a good alternative for shooting travel documentaries!
Connectivity and Network Performance
For MetroPCS mobile phones, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is worth the contract. Aside from its built-in connectivity protocols Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.2, ANT+, NFC, GPS GLONASS, and USB 2.0, it is also integrated with Samsung’s Smart Switch that enables a faster PC sync.
Moreover, its network is also deployed with LTE connection supporting fast browsing, and streaming online. It also supports good voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) and Wi-Fi calling.
Processor and Battery
In this time and era, mobile users are more informed of the specs that they should focus on. The good news is, Samsung knows that.
