Not 100% sure but so long as you get the same SIM card that would go in the 521, the T Mobile 925 should work, and the 920 should work if you enable all the bands with some ROM flashing (wouldn't recommend his). I would reach out to Metro PCS about this, but I believe the 521 is just going to piggyback on the T-Mobile GSM network.

I work for MetroPCS here in LA we run off T-Mobile for the BYOD the 925 should have the right stuf to work. just purcahse a sim from your metropcs store T-Mobile devices shouldnt need to be unlocked they should just read the SIM right away and the 920 should work as well the LTE I believe uses the same information. you should be fine with either one you choose. personally for me i would like to use a 925 but they wont let me bring my own device for the employee plan :P

I got a Lumia 925 but can't get service with MetroPCS. Cellular network settings even has it as an option. I called support and they told me since they don't have the phone in the system, they can't "activate" it for me. Any suggestions? Seems to me it should 'just work'.

For anyone curious, the 925 isn't registered on MetroPCS's network, so they can't tie the sim to the device. Even using sims, they are basing the structure off of their original network. They probably will have it available in the future, but I switch devices so often that I need something like T-Mobile. I wish I knew this before quitting Solavei to go to Metro for the unlimited data plan.
