    MetroPCS is TMobile. Evidently the phone is SIM-locked to Verizon and you'll have to ask Verizon to give you the unlock code (if you still have an account with them, otherwise they're not required to give it to you - they may, or they may not).

    I've traveled to Kuwait, Qatar, and now in Germany with my Verizon S7E and it works perfectly. It was however, a bit of a hassle to setup. It wouldn't work when I popped in a different SIM and I had the message saying Not a Verizon SIM, which you can't get rid of by the way. What I found out is that you have to go to settings, then Mobile Networks and add an access point name for the networks you wanna use. You can Google the Network's APN. I'm on Telekom in Germany and traveled to Estonia, when I got back my phone wouldn't work and when I went to the store they simply added the APN back into the device because it somehow got deleted when roaming.
