As far as i know the answer is no. Metro runs on t mobile network, t mobile needs a removable sim card. Sprint and their phones does not work like that. You have to get a new phone with metro. The only phone companies that are compatible with metro, are t mobile, att&t, and I think cricket. You could try boost mobile, if I'm not mistaken ya they run on sprints network.

SOURCE: can a sprint samsung instinct be be flashed to metro pcs fully?

If you flashed the phone yourself then I assume you have software on a pc or laptop such as CDMA workshop or QPST configuration. If you do and you have the phones USB drivers on your computer all you have to do is put your phone in diagnostic mode and run one of these programs to access service programming. There you can change the sprint data settings to metros. For instance user name would change from old#@sprintpcs.com to new#@mymetropcs.com. It sounds difficult but if you know the settings and have the software it is quite easy.
If you paid someone to flash it for you, they did a half a$$ job as they should have done it during initial flash. You can google metropcs data and mms settings to get correct info.

SOURCE: I need to know how

Open the picture on your phone. Look for the "send" option it may be on the menu so you have to access the menu. E-mail the picture to yourself.

Then just open the e-mail from your computer and save the attachment.

How do I flash a sprint Samsung galaxy s2 for metro use


I think what you mean is that you want o unlock it. This a CDMA phone, but there is also an S2 Sprint model which have a min-SIM card (the Samsung SPH-D710). But then again I'm not sure that it can be unlock. One way would be to contact Sprint, they will ask you for an ESN (located under the battery). To flash any firmware you need the firmware and Odin, this is a tool to flash firmware to Samsung devices. But that won't unlock your device.
I recommend that if possible, visit a Metro PCS store or Kiosk, maybe they can sell you a mini-SIM card and unlock it for you. Metro PCS use CDMA technology as Sprint and Verizon, but Metro PCS is now accepting GSM phones. Best of luck.

Flashed my sprint evo in florida to metro pcs and kept my old # it worked in fla. i got off the plane in ny two weeks later , the screen read analog b it no longer had service . it also was telling me to...


It is because in the Northeast Metro PCS uses a 10 MGHZ AWS frequency and your device does not have a AWS radio. If you return to a market were Metro uses a CDMA frequency, your service will return. That is why you were told to get a Metro phone because their devices have dual band radios. This is also why the metroflash service is not offered in the Northeast, as far as I am aware, the only other provider who uses AWS in the NY area is Cricket.

I have the lg rumor 260 from sprint and it is connected to metro but i dont have text or internet how can i get it


As long as you have Metro as carrier (instead of Sprint which is the carrier that the chip was originally designed for) you won't be able to fully use all the features in your phone. When you switch to a carrier like Metro PCS, they allow you to take the phone that you used with a previous carrier (most of the times, AT&T phones as for I know do not work), by doing what is called a "light flash". They delete certain programming from the phone but do not delete the main "BIOS" software due to legal issues. Companies like Sprint among others are not happy with this Metro PCS initiative, but Metro itself hasn't broken no rule yet.
In other words, what you are trying to do is feasable, there's people that can do it (not in regular cellphone stores) but even if you get it done, Metro won't accept the phone because then they can get in trouble for what I mentioned before. Hope my explanation helps, good luck.

you cant unlock sprint phones. Called them and they said its impossible because they have their sim cards built right in to their phones so the only thing you can do is have them transferred to another persons sprint account. its bulls***
