How To Unlock A Metro Phone


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?

How To Unlock 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:
