    Just my advice, but I would recommend you purchase a new 5s if you can, or a refurbished one from Apple. You'll be much happier in the long run.

    1. Calm down
    2. Apple iOS is the phone's Operating System. Hence, OS.
    3. You need to ask the seller what carrier the phone was originally on AND if it is unlocked.
    4. You need to ask MetroPCS if they will accept phones from that carrier. And if said phone needs to be unlocked first.
    5. You need to ask MetroPCS how much it will cost.
    6. You need to make sure that the seller DISABLES the iCloud account including Find My Phone on the device.
    7. You would be well advised to meet the seller at the carrier store to ensure that you can activate the phone on your carrier of choice.
