Exclamation [Q] Samsung galaxy s5 from sprint to metro

Is it possible to flash the sprint variant of the galaxy s5 to metro and if so where or how? I've read up about att and Verizon versions but all I've heard about the sprint one is that it communicates through a different frequency but Idk

Since this phone uses CDMA, I would assume that you can, but I haven't used MetroPCS service in about 5 years.

Please note that you will experience reduced functionality (no LTE/download booster/WiFi calling) while flashed to a different carrier. You would probably be better off grabbing an international version.
