    I am trying to use an already activated SIM card from Metro PCS in an unlocked Galaxy s4, and it won't work. Would someone please walk me through the process? Or do I just need to call Metro PCS?

    Are you certain the phone is actually unlocked?

    Are you sure it's compatible with Metro PCS? You'll need to know the sub-model number. Then go to this site to find out if it will work:

    It's not you that is messing up. I ran into this issue just last week with my unlocked phone. The carrier your sim is activated on has to have the IMEI number. So basically when you place a call, the sim and IMEI are checked to verify they match and vola, you have a working phone.

    PS, if it's metropcs you are on, be prepared to pay 15 dollars for this 2 min switch
