MetroPCS has updated their web page with a banner saying that BYOD (Bring Your Own Device SIMs are now available in MetroPCS stores in all cities.
The SIMs, which cost $15 will let you use most unlocked GSM phones on the MetroPCS GSM network (actually the T-Mobile network). MetroPCS says the GSM service doesn't support BlackBerrys, tablets or mobile hotspots.
In another change, it looks like MetroPCS' GSM phones, including the brand new $149 LG Optimus F3 LTE Android phone, are now available online. The Nokia Lumia 521, which was also supposed to be available today is not showing online yet.
