Default Rom suggestions. APN settings? Metro pcs

Hello there.
I just unlocked and rooted my t999.
I will be using it with metro pcs, can anyone recommend any roms good to use with metro pcs? Or can I just stay stock? Is it safe to delete the t-mobile apps? What APN setting should use for data, mms, sms and voice to work properly?

You can use any rom or stay stay stock, up to you, and yes you can delete the T-Mobile apps.. For the APN, the T-Mobile APN will work fine

I'm sorry I don't know why I keep saying metro pcs, most metro pcs retail stores in my city changed to AIO wireless, so I'm getting AIO not metro, they told me it's the same as at&t as they are working with the same towers, so you think I have to change the APN from tmobile's to at&t? Or AIO?

You would have to change it, but I don't know if at&t APN would work. As far as ROMs you can also use at&t ones as well

If you call T-Mo, they can tell you if its blacklisted. If it is then it will not work.

It is blacklisted and it worked right when I inserted the AIO sim card, I just had to enter the APN for data to work.
