It seems as MetroPCS no longer offers MetroFlash service. The carrier hasn’t confirmed this information yet and the web page for it still exists but according to Howard Forums member and Phonenews.com report, CDMA phones from other carriers cannot be flashed to MetroPCS network any more.
Almost four years ago, MetroPCS introduced MetroFlash service as a way of attracting more customers, considering their phone lineup wasn’t even close to the one they have today. They were allowing users to bring their own CDMA phones and make them compatible with MetroPCS network, all up until now.
Now, MetroPCS have respectable selection of handsets, mostly Android smartphones and they are planning to move to the LTE technology completely. Their plans have changed so is their strategy so it’s no wonder they don’t need MetroFlash flashing service any more. Even if this is not the case right now, eventually it will be since it’s inevitable. Moving to the LTE technology requests it.
According to the source, MetroPCS gave instruction to dealers to stop offering the Houdini flashing service right away.
