Let me break it down for you... T-Mobile Operates on 1900MHz spectrum using GSM technology... unlocked phones work on GSM networks... MetroPCS operates on the 1900MHz spectrum as well but using CDMA technology... unlocked phones are good for Cingular and T-Mobile.... You can use an unlocked phone by simply installing the SIM card into the phones... SIM cards are used on GSM networks... so in conclusion, your unlocked RAZR will not work with MetroPCS... However, maybe a Verizon RAZR would work since Verizon uses CDMA technology as well and operates on 1900MHz spectrum as well...hope this helps
