    Metro PCS phone with T-Mobile sim???

    Can I purcahse a Metro PCS phone and have it work with my T-Mobile sim without having to unlock the Metro phone?

    Metro PCS has the Optimus L9 for $119 and the OPtimus F3 for $99 (after rebate) http://www.metropcs.com/metro/catego...s/LG/cat190031

    These are great prices and I would like to take advantage if possible. If these need to be unlocked which company would you recommend?

    Thanks!

    The rebate requires at least 2 months of service with MetroPCS but $149 without rebate is still a great price if it can be unlocked inexpensively.

    Optimus f3 needs to be unlocked to be used on T-Mobile. I'm using it right now on T-Mobile.

    Which service did you use to unlock and, if you don't mind, what was the price?

    Thanks

    Unlocked from eBay. Around 2 bucks from the UK.

    So now I see that the TMobile site has the F3 available for prepaid but for a ridiculous price. Any idea how long it will take stores like Walmart, Target, Best Buy to start selling this phone? Does it usually take a month or more for retails stores to get these in?

    Thanks,
