    I have a galaxy on5 from metro pcs but I want to use the sim card from a different carrier and need help finding a way around calling Metro PCS and requesting an unlock code, or having to buy one. Can someone help me out with this problem?

    It can absolutely be done and done easily with a gc pro key or z3x

    Those things may be of dubious legality. I'll check with the Moderators. In any event the OP specified no cost.

    Why not just go through MetroPCS? https://www.metropcs.com/terms-condi...ck-policy.html. Assuming that you meet their criteria, there is no fee to unlock the phone.

    I agree but for those who don't meet the criteria....

    Do those tools just unlock the device from the carrier, without requiring any trickery with the IMEI? I have heard of them, but they're not cheap and would probably only be worthwhile if you had several phones to unlock, or if you were to use them to do unlocks for others.

    Yes they don't mess with the imei at all any more. They have come a long way and are really amazing. I have 6 different tools and I'm almost embarrassed at what I've made off of them. In some cases att Samsung in particular you don't even need to root any more to unlock. The best three are z3x,octopus,and gc pro key. If you have questions feel free to ask or check out gsm forum. They can do a lot more than unlock too.
