Why should I SIM unlock a Metro phone?

If your phone’s locked to the Metro, Metropcs or the Metro by T Mobile network you won’t be able to cash in on the thousands of deals offered by other carriers. The resale value of your device is less. Traveling abroad means hefty roaming charges. And, if your signal’s poor, you’re pretty much stuck with it. When you unlock phones, you also unlock their potential. Your Metropcs or Metro by T Mobile phone instantly becomes cheaper, more versatile, more global, and, most importantly, more suited to you. With power back in your hands, you can customize your phone use to suit your wallet, your lifestyle and your location.

How to unlock Metro phone

Hooked up to the internet or wifi? Got your device to-hand? Good. That means you’re ready to unlock your Metro wireless phone. Here’s all you need to do to activate your Metropcs phone unlock.

Locate your phone's 15-digit IMEI number by inputting *#06# into your phone. Or by going through your ‘Settings’ menu.

Found it? Good. Now type it into this page in the box above. And click ‘Checkout’.

And you’re done!

As soon as you checkout, our software starts scanning over 200 phone manufacturing databases globally to source the data and unlock code needed to remove the lock from your Metropcs cell phone.

How long will it take? Most Android phones can be unlocked within 1 to 6 hours. The phone unlock process for Apple devices can take a little longer to complete. Check the compatibility of your device here.

Got an iPhone or Apple device? In that case, you won’t need an unlock code. Instead, an automatic (or “over-the-air”) unlock will take place as soon as you’re hooked up to the internet or WIFI/3G/4G. Once the over-the-air process is complete, put your new SIM into your cell phone and turn it back on. Your device will update automatically and unlock ready for you to use.

Got an Android device? Check your email for an unlock code we’ll send you. Key this into your cell phone, put your new SIM card in and you’re all set to switch network.
