Bob has an LG Android phone through MetroPCS and he would like to unlock it. Leo says it isn't something he'd want to try himself, nor should he take advantage of offers on the Internet to unlock it. What Leo would recommend is contacting his carrier and ask if they will unlock it. He should tell them he's planning on traveling overseas and would like to unlock it to take advantage of purchasing a local sim to make phone calls. If he's past his two year commitment, they should be willing to do it. In fact, the chatroom says that MetroPCS will unlock it after three months.

Pat is saying she's tired of contracts and the high monthly rates, so she switched to Straight Talk by Walmart. Leo says that MNVOs like Straight Talk are basically a 'rented line' from carriers like Verizon. They do funny things like throttling, charging for overages, etc.
