    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 a game and need a bout 500 megs of data per month.
    So Metro CPS has a plan for 30.
    Will my ATT phone work with a Metro PCS sim?

    It will work with metro pcs if the phone is unlocked as metro pcs uses t mobile towers. Straight talk has the ability to be used on an AT&T phone but it is a $45 a month pre paid plan but you get 5gb of high speed date and 2g speeds after plus unlimited talk and text.

    It is locked to AT&T. And I guess that's gonna be my biggest problem.
    All I need is a little bit of data LOL but 200 megs is not enough.

    I went onto he ATT unlock request site and filled out the form. They replied almost immediately that they had unlocked the phone. Now for my 7 to come in on the 16th and I can use the best deal I can find that will give me at least 1gb of data for cheap.
