Is there a minimum number of months to keep the service active?

All Metro deals are in-store only.
Usually the corporate owned stores are best for walking out with no extra fees.
You must port in from a non T-Mobile competitor.
We recently brought four lines in from an expiring Sprint deal and got the Moto G stylus. It's a great deal if you need the service, and you get good T-Mobile coverage.
There is an unlock app installed on these phones and will automatically unlock after 6 months service. Not before

Prepaid so you only pay first month. You don't have to continue payment but your phone will not unlock

Also OP has a little typo in the title. Samsung A20 is the phone. No "s".
We are quite happy with the Moto G stylus phones. 4gb ram. Very smooth. All day battery.
Also it looks like they still have the 4 lines for $100 flat rate.
Happy trails

Could 4 lines for $100 be combined with the free Moto G Stylus (or A20 or K51) deal if one is ready to port-in 4 lines?

Would tax be calculated on the original price of these phones ($239.99 for Moto G Stylus) or only for other fees (Plan cost & Activation fees)

It would be a great deal if one could get,
4 Moto G Stylus - Free: $0
Prepay 1st month service for all 4 lines: $100
Activation fee ($15*4): $60
Taxes on $160: $5 to $10

Total: $170 for walking out with 4 new phones. Or am I missing something?

I know it's recommended to go to a corporate store but I only have franchise stores around me here state. How would it change the above?

Call around as the franchise owned stores decide some of the things you mentioned. One store told me that I needed a minimum 60 per month plan along with several fees, and another store told me I can choose the 40 monthly plan plus tax plus 15 fee. So I went there and walked out with moto g stylus for 56.xx.

Important to know that you must port a number from non t-mobile network, and they will NOT port a google voice number.

I tried to pay for device app unlock on ebay for 55 bucks, but they were unable to and refunded me. I've had metro in the past and always been able to unlock after 6 months even after using service for only one month. I just didn't want to wait this time. Fortunately I was able to flip the moto g stylus on CL for 150 to a metro user.

That's what I did when my free BYOD sprint plan came to an end. So in the first week of June, I switched 4 lines from sprint and got 4 new Moto G stylus from a corporate store. I paid $170. I don't know if the deal still exists. If you search "moto g stylus", you will find the whole thread discussing about it including my posts.

I did that recently with the Moto G stylus, so yes you can.
The question about difference in cost at a dealer store is less definite.
One thing I have never understood is that corporate stores do not charge tax on the phones. Franchise stores do.
Some will want to charge you more per line, add screen protectors or cases or insurance, etc.
It depends on your local store. A little wild west-y.
This last time I went to a franchise store. Ended up paying approximately $350 for three Moto G stylus and one iPhone 7 with one month service. ( At that time Moto G stylus was $20 per phone and iPhone was $30 after instant rebate).
They did credit me $20 on my next bill and cancel the insurance.($5 per line).
MetroPCS is fine and we'll be keeping it for the six months at least.

Depends on the crooked metro store. Mine was $299 otd for four Moto g stylus. I went home and mf charges me for everything that he told me was free. For ex, sd card and headphones.
