First off MetroPCS is a CDMA gen3 CX2000 carrier so your GSM phone won't work with them.

2ndly no, you cannot bring a 3rd party phone into MetroPCS and activate it. Metro PCS uses both negative and positive ESN listing to make sure that only phone origionally bought by metroPCS and not blacklisted for any reason may be activated.

One of the advantages of centralizing all your phone purchases from one source that helps keep our monthly bills down...
