There are some mixed results with the following procedure. Don't make your decision just based on this data point.

Unlock by metro is NOT ymmv. Everyone got unlocked.
1. You should not use rsim with different carrier
2. Power on from 180th day, keep it powered on 3-5 days with WiFi connected. It will be unlocked
3. Do not take out the original SIM card until it's unlocked.
Once you get your phone and go home. Call customer service right away and say you want to change your plan to the $30.00 so you'll get $20.00 credit on your next bill.

Yes, it doesn't work on T-Mobile and it's child companies. It is locked to Metro.
Though It gets automatically unlocked after 181 days. Last time I used only one month service and kept in drawer for 181 days, even didn't Port out, it got unlocked automatically, even didn't had to contact Metro Customer service.

Metro employees are a bunch of a**holes. They're so rude and they never want to help me out. I get that stores set their own policies, but you can't be ripping people off with fees. One store charges $25 for activation another charges $10. One time I went to 6 different stores just to see what kind of fees they had and see if they have any kind of respect for the customer. Oh and the corporate store was rudest of them all. I ended up get one a phone from a location that was 20 miles away. Phone service was amazing, blazing fast speeds and good call quality, if Metro let you buy their phones online I would be more than happy to buy their phones and use their service.

Some people have mentioned the iPhone 7 they purchased from Metro was the CDMA model, so you could take it to Verizon/Sprint (when unlocked). They also have the iPhone 6S for $29. YMMV.

Neither device has Band 71 or Band 14/30 (AT&T).

Other free phones with Band 71 support:
Stylo 5
Moto G7 Play
Samsung Galaxy A20
Samsung Galaxy A10e
Moto G7 Power

Yes. Or use an RSIM/LTE interposer for a 'soft' unlock

That won't qualify for the phone. You'd need the $50 and up to get it.

Yes, Minimum $50 plan + $15 Activation fee. If you buy from corporate stores then you don't have to pay tax on iPhone 7's original value, just you may have to pay tax on $49. If you buy from Metro retail stores, they may charge taxes on iPhone 7' original value.
