    Does MetroPCS use SIM cards? If so, you should be able to just swap the SIM card to the "new" device (if the 2 devices use the same size). Provided the seller properly reset the device, you should be good to go to set it up for you.

    I hate to tell you, while it may not be malfunctioning, that Note 5 isn't much newer than the device you're replacing.

    If the Note 5 is a TMobile (N920T) phone, or if it's an unlocked AT&T phone (N920A), it will work. If he removed his Google account from it.

    If it's a 920A and not unlocked it won't. (MetroPCS uses TMobile towers.)
