    Default ATT locked so which carrier?

    I have a good cell plan but want to take my iP6 and buy a pay as you go sim card for 30 a month. I just ordered a 7 and it will take over my ATT number.
    I want to use my old phone to play Pokemon Go and need about 500 megs of data per month.
    So Metro CPS has a plan for $30 with 1 gb
    Will my ATT phone work with a Metro PCS sim?
    Or what pay as you go company will do what I need? The ATT Go phone only gives me 200mb of data and is not enough.
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    If your current iPhone is unlocked then it should work with MetroPCS, but I can't say for certain. Call or visit a nearby MetroPCS store and ask them.

    Your att phone needs to be unlocked to work with metro pcs. Metro pcs uses T-Mobile network. Also why use two devices when you can play same game on your new phone?

    My grandson and I play a lot together, and when we are not together I log into his account to capture the rare 'mon that I come across. A second device would free up my phone and help when I want in two games at the same time. (It's definitely a 1st world problem lol)
    I found a page for ATT unlock request and filled out the form. They replied back almost immediately that they had unlocked my phone!! Yippee - so I can go with he best deal I can find which I think is MetroC
    PCS, but I gotta get my iP7 in first.
