    No, but I just remembered metro pcs doesn't work well at my house. I was setting it up for my aunt. Hopefully she will get a signal at her house

    Metro uses TMO's network now, but they kinda retain their own APNs. If you're seeing the TMO logo, that means the phone's registering on TMO/Metro. Anyway, here are some settings:

    APN (confirm you see this under Settings>Network and Connections>Mobile Network>APN (tap on the gear icon):

    APN: fast.metropcs.com
    Username, password: blank
    Authentication type: none

    MMSC (Hub>Settings>Text Messages>MMS>Advanced (slider in the bottom bar):

    APN: fast.metropcs.com
    Username, password: blank
    MMSC URL: http://metropcs.mmsmvno.com/mms/wapenc
    Proxy URL, username, password: blank

    If MMS doesn't work, try changing the URL to http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms

    Do youhave any TMO coverage at your home? At least one bar of 2G? If not, then it might be worth it to resume set up at your aunt's place.

    Was the APN already entered in?

    Nope none at all. When she got home though she still didn't get a signal. The apn settings just had fast. T moblie.com or something like that

    Yeah. Try manually typing the Metro APN in.

    And you're absolutely sure this phone is now unlocked?

    I use Metro PCS with my Z30. When they set up your phone, they have to list it as "other." At the store or if you call customer service, they'll have the option of listing it as an Andriod, Iphone, or Other. Don't even mention that it's a BlackBerry. For some reason they think it won't work, and try to sell you a BlackBerry specific plan. I think it might have something to do with the way old BlackBerry phones worked.
