    Possibly not. Branded phones are often "SIM locked", this means that only a SIM from the provider that sold the device will work until the device is unlocked. In order to do that the device needs to meet the carrier's requirements for unlocking.

    Here are T-Mobile's requirements - https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-1588

    Metro is a subsidiary of TMobile, so yes. If Metro has apps in their phones that TMobile doesn't, and you want them, you're going to have to find them and install them.

    It should work with no problem, except for the APN (check that after you put the SIM card in it and turn it on). If you need the correct one, look up Metro at United States 4G LTE APN Settings 2019. And if Metro has any apps that TMobile doesn't, and you want them, you'll have to find them and install them.

    Welcome to Android Central! See this: https://www.t-mobile.com/responsibil...-unlock-policy. If it' a prepaid phone, you probably have more requirements to meet.
