The answer for Trac-Fone is no.

Trac-Fone (and all prepaid services) have their own custom firm-ware installed in the phone.

If the CPU in the phone is flash programmable, you "might" be able to install the Trac-Fone code "IF" you could even get it.

As to keeping the same phone and switching providers, if your new provider supports your existing phone, they should be able to change it over for you.

Metro PCS uses a 3G service. They are picky about the phones you can use on their service.

You can get the Verizon phone unlocked. But it can only be used on a carrier that is compatable with the frequencies that the phone operates on.

Some phones work in the 800mhz some in the 1900mhz. Everyone is going digital.


Good Luck
