A:AnswerWhen i bought mine, it was stated all features may not work properly with the Metro network. However, being my 2nd unlocked phone from Best Buy, all features have worked with no issues on both phones purchased. Just insert your sim card and take it to get it registered with your network after paying activation fee.
Should be painless process.
A:AnswerPhysically, it can take two cellphone SIMs. HOWEVER, the phone doesn't work in Dual SIM mode, even though this is written on the SIM slot and on the back of the box. If you insert two cellphone SIMs, it will just recognize the first one, like a standard single-SIM phone.
A:AnswerIf you have their SIM card, it will! Take the SIM out of your old Consumer Cellular phone & put it in your new phone. Ask a Consumer Cellular rep b4 purchasing a new phone, just to be sure and to avoid hassles beforehand.
