Yeah too bad the stuffed suits at MetroPCS had to go and ruin it by using a UICC card instead of a SIM. You can't put that UICC card in another device either. It might as well be a CDMA "locked" down phone. This new phone is all "locked" down with some BS from Metro. Not using SIMs defeats the whole purpose of switching off of CDMA (besides the faster data). Leave it to some corporate suit to mess things up for consumers. I didn't even know LTE being opened sourced off of GSM would even allow some crap like a UICC card in place of a SIM. What a bunch of BS! LTE isn't even off the ground and they are already trying to ruin it at MetroPCS.
