T-Mobile US said 92 percent of MetroPCS' customers on its legacy code division multiple access (CDMA) network in Boston, Hartford (CT) and Las Vegas moved onto T-Mobile's network after T-Mobile shut off MetroPCS CDMA service in those markets.

The carrier next plans to shut down MetroPCS' CDMA network in Philadelphia by late 2014.

To move the customers, T-Mobile starting in April notified MetroPCS customers in Boston, Hartford and Las Vegas that they should move to T-Mobile's GSM-based network, and trade in their old CDMA phone for a new GSM one, in most cases at little to no cost.
