yes,

from metroPCS :

"MetroPCS GSM phones can be unlocked after 90 days of continuous activation with MetroPCS service. After this criteria is met, a request can be made to MetroPCS for the unlock code. Hope this helps. Thank you, LM"

"You did not complete the necessary compliance to request an unlocked code for your phone. Thank you, LM"

indeed,i have bought it from my friend,he did not complete the necessary compliance to request an unlocked code 

:smileysad:

Can you show me where sales code and how to get it?

Hello, RajibHossain.

 

Welcome to the Nokia Support Discussions.

 

In order for you to unlock your phone, you need to contact your Network provider (T-mobile) to get your unlock code.

 

Cheers!

The unlock code is available from T-Mobile but because you did not purchase it from them, they may not entertain your request. Perhaps you should try contacting the seller first and see if they can get the code from T-Mobile for you. Did they state that the phone was locked to T-Mobile?
