MetroPCS SIM Card Locking

Your MetroPCS SIM card is locked to your phone’s unique IMEI number. You can’t simply pop your SIM into another phone and expect it to work. Each SIM card is paired with a specific device, and trying to use it with another phone will result in it not working.

Important Information

It should be noted that eSIMs have the same plans and prices as physical SIMs. Further, the eSIM also works internationally and supports the MetroPCS roaming service.
