I have a 1520 which I just received the unlock code from ATT. I went to local Metro PCS store and inserted a Metro sim and I didn't get service. I went to another Metro store and got the same results. Does anyone know how to get a 1520 to work with Metro?

The AT&T 1520 should get service on MetroPCS after unlocking the device. Did you follow the instructions provided in the unlock email to unlock your device first?

Yes. I powered the device off and put in the Metro sim. I was asked to type in the unlock code. I typed the unlock code in and then it said code accepted.

In that case the phone should've picked up MetroPCS' network. Give it sometime (like 5-10 mins) after inserting the SIM and it should work.

The same thing happened to me. All you need to do is call MetroPCS so that they could register your device on the network. Just give them the IMEI of your phone
