Default Unlock Instructions with Carrier Provided Code

MetroPCS emailed me the unlock codes finally but they did not give me any instruction. When I google instructions I get a lot of spam sites trying to sell me code, Hope someone here could help.

easiest method:

pull out your SIM card and put in an non supported SIM card... if you are locked to metroPCS than anything else like T-Mobile, AT&T etc, doesnt need to be working in service card even..

a box will pop out informing you that a non-supported SIM has been inserted and to enter a code if you want to unlock the phone.

put i the code they send you in the field and press "OK"

this is just a one time thing, once you do that, your phone will remain unlocked even of you factory reset it or update the firmware/OS or you install a diferend ROM.
