You need to fix this problem before ordering since we do not accept complaint / refund request about this specific error.
However we do have some tips to get rid of this error:
1 – Make sure you use the original Stock ROM from MetroPCS since it will not work if you flash your phone with any custom Firmware from T-Mobile, CyanogenMod, or even an Unbranded ROM.
2 – However make sure you’re using the last version of MetroPCS Firmware for your Cell phone.
3 – Finally (after upgrade) perform a Hard Reset on your Cell phone
4 – Turn off 3G/LTE and force the use of a local WiFi Hotspot.
5 – Make sure you use home Wifi (and not a public/company WiFi since they might use firewall, vpn, etc… that will cause trouble with communications)
If none of these recommendations work for you, then we don’t have any solution.
