I bought a used Stylo 6 MetroPCS from eBay. I tried to unlock it using the device unlock app. It got unlocked in one go. Let’s see how to do this –
Open the “Metro by T-Mobile” folder located on your Stylo 6 home screen.

As of now, our device is network locked. It won’t work with any GSM SIM except MetroPCS.
Select “CONTINUE” to proceed with unlocking.
We are heading towards a permanent unlock. Your device will never ever lock again in the future.
Click “Permanent Unlock” to send the unlocking request.
Now, it’s requesting for a permanent unlock. We need to wait for a while.
Voila! The unlock request was approved.
Now, we just need to restart the phone to apply these changes.
After the reboot, a confirmation text flashes on the screen “Device is permanently unlocked”.
