    I just jailbroke my iphone 5S but it is connected to sprint and want to put in my MetroPCS card....

    When I take out the Sim and put in mine, the phone locks down saying the Sim isn't supported....

    I tried using SAM and it probably would work but the moment I put in the new card, the phone locks down, can't see the home screen....

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!!!

    Jailbreaking and unlocking are two different things.

    Software unlocks, i.e., jailbreaking and then using software to unlock, was last viable in 2011. You can't do this anymore with modern versions of the iPhone.

    You will either need to have Sprint unlock the phone, purchase an unlock, or find a Gevey or other SIM Imposer that will work with your firmware.

    There are no other solutions. SAM will not work.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    There is no software unlock available for your device.
    SAM has been patched and hasn't worked for years.
    You have to ask Sprint for an unlock or pay to have it IMEI unlocked.
    No other way.
