I used sim-unlock dot net. It took a couple hours to get the code. I don't know the best option as this is the only time I have ever done it.

You mean you can install the rom for g900f a g900t1 such as lollipop ???

I have the 900T1 model and I just want to confirm something before I decide on unlocking the device for use.

I received this phone as a gift and am planning to install the TMO 6.0.1 TW ROM because Metro PCS never got it. I plan to test this using TMO and assume their hardware is similar enough. If I'm on the 6.0.1 ROM (i.e Stock-ROM based on the G900TUVU1GPE1); will I have the Carrier-functions like Wifi Calling and HD Voice?

On the T-Mobile site, someone sort of confirmed using a LG G Stylo from Metro PCS still maintained the Carrier-functions, but it was Assumed Answered so I don't know for sure since only APN settings was covered and not the actual carrier-functions I'm interested in. I know I can unlock any GSM phone for use, but the carrier-functions is often left ambiguously answered.

EDIT: After getting an unlock code and using it; I can confirm that my TMO card is recognized. I can accept updates up to the latest 6.0.1 PK3 and use Wifi Calling no problem. Can even use the G900T tools.

Thanks!

You can use any ROM that says klte. Like if you want lineage os/CyanogenMod you would use the klte build. Personally I like AOSP builds better than stock based Roms especially o. A phone like this with not too much ram. I have a TMO note 2 running cm android 6.0.1 and it runs like a champ and that phone is like 4 years old. It just runs cleaner and smoother
