So I got a metro PCs phone unlocked it at https://www.unlocklocks.com/

And now I have it on T-Mobile no problems what so ever
I used hangouts for SMS so the apns where there already
And in order to enable the built in hotspot without root I went into wireless connections and added the APN for T-Mobile by copying everything as it was on my note 3, and just like that hotspot is activated

Question
Since there isn't a dedicated MetroPCS section due it being 99% compatible with TMO ROMs, etc. I'd like to post an issue here that I'm having with my S5 from MPCS in hopes someone else has found a resolution. The issue I'm having is getting a tethering "hack" to work with my service. Has anyone found one that works successfully for them? Thanks!

Same phones since s3.
Same Lte.
Identical just metro has some metro apps.
If u buy metro you have to wait 90 days before they will unlock it .
T-mobile not sure
But u can pay to have it done .
I use t-mobile phones on metro all the time . But u can't use metro branded on t-mobile It's metro rules .

sim unlock
I just got the S5 at Metro. Do I have to sim unlock to install roms. I have root and TWRP recovery already. Tried the Slim rom for Tmo and didn't have any service even after changing APN settings. Any help is greatly appreciated.
