    You will need to buy a Metro PCS sim!
    And look up this thread on how to unlock the phone!

    You would have to buy the Tiny plastic SIM card either only at the Metro PCS site (if there is one, and if they do sell one there), or at the Metro PCS store (if there is one by you).

    DerekO04011, is this sim card universal, meaning that it would be for Metro PCS but is interchangeable between differnt manufacturers?..... Metro PCS sells really crappy Kyrocera phones and I'd like to get there service, but, they won't activate my Nokia since it was a Verizon phone. Although my original phone with Verizon was the same model Kyrocera that Metro PCS uses. I guess my question is: will the sim card fit in any phone?
    Thanks

    No,
    Thats not the reason you need a new SIM card, they need to get you a new SIM card so you can use there service. Each service provider has a special SIM card, they are for (I think) telling what plan you have, therefore you cannot use the same one while changing between providers.

    Metro PCS sells really crappy Kyrocera phones and I'd like to get there service, but, they won't activate my Nokia since it was a Verizon phone. Although my original phone with Verizon was the same model Kyrocera that Metro PCS uses.
    http://www.metropcs.com is the site for MetroPCS and it shows more cell phones other than Kyocera you can order!


    Hope this helps,
    Derek
