Please read the OFFICIAL Metro by Tmobile unlock policy.
Exercise your own judgement, after all everyone may have different experiences.

Some phones no longer available, such as Moto G Stylus 2021.
Few "newer" phone such as Oneplus N200 and Samsung a53 been report working with T-mobile out of box without been locked.

________________________________________

and before anyone ask....

to have phone unlock in 180 days (6 months)

u need to have activated the phone 180 days ago.

u do not. repeat do NOT have to pay for service for 180 days.

the above has been true for most every metro deal in the past.
it is extremely likely true for this deal as well

______________________________________________
also note...many times M reps will make up rules...

if it sounds odd...its probably made up

I would love to figure this too.
I bought the A53 but the SIM doesn't work in another phone (it seems tied to the phone it is activated with).
I can try to move the SIM to another phone online but I am worried it might disable the 6-months unlock.

Any experiences with using the SIM on another phone?

You can, however unsure on if the phone will unlock (no matter what, outside of the obvious using service for 6 months). It's been unlocking after 6 mo without service, but things change sometimes without any clarification on the changes.

Removing the SIM and putting it into another phone, shouldn't matter at all. It'd probably help you get the phone unlocked if you continue paying for service. You do need to change IMEI # in account settings though, or else the SIM won't work on your other phone. Sim hot swapping (taking it out, putting it in other device) doesn't work on Metro. It used to suck cause cost $25 to make them switch IMEI over phone or in-store, but now it's free if you do it yourself in app.

Metro phones can be unlocked 181 days after activation even if only the first month is paid for. My experience has been with Android only and there is an app on the phone to unlock.

Although these are of course not 5G capable, the A12 does show that it has some CDMA bands, so might be of use on Verizon or Visible after unlocking. Just a thought.
There are other phones that are free or paid a little more with much better specs than the Samsung phones. For example the Revvl V+ 5G or TCL 30XE 5G (what's up with these terrible names...)

Metro phones unlock in 6 month after first month service ends. Long wait time but doesn't require active service to unlock.
Metro phones are locked to Metro only. You can use a locked T-Mobile phone on Metro, but not vice versa.

The only one available for free with plan online is Samsung A03 for me.

Also does anyone knows if this will this work with TMobile Sim or do I still need to unlock this phone?

6 months unlock requirement. Not clear if you can pay for just one month and then unlock in 6 months, or if you need 6 months of service. A13 A is free after Port but I'm not taking the risk

Just an FYI, if you're willing to go into a store it looks like the Galaxy A13 5G is free when you port in

or the Galaxy A53 5G for $50

That's true - just wanted to highlight the Galaxy phones that were 5G since the post was focused on Samsung devices and a user commented on these not being 4G. And I agree with you on the terrible names of some of these devices Smilie
