There maybe a time when you will need to add a line or remove a line from your Metro by T-Mobile account (MetroPCS).
It could be that you are porting a number from another network and want to add the line to your existing Metro by T-Mobile account.
Whatever your reason, MetroPCS makes it seamless for you to add a new line to your account.
In summary, as a new customer, you can add a new line (besides the main line) while activating your account on the network.
For existing customers, you have to either contact MetroPCS customer support or visit a MetroPCS store near you to add a line to your account.
This post breaks down the process of adding a new line for both new and existing customers. Also, you will learn other details like how much it costs to add a line and more.
How To Add A Line To Your MetroPCS Account (New Account)
As mentioned, you can add a new line to your MetroPCS account during the activation process. The network allows you to complete the process yourself through the Metro Online Activation Tool.
Open the new account activation link. Enter your details and Address. Enter your device IMEI and SIM card serial number. Follow the onscreen instructions to continue the activation.
When you get to the option to add an alternative or second line, click to add a new line. Enter the phone number and continue with your setup.

You can add up to 5 lines to your account following the process above.
Note that, you can only activate a smartphone via the Online Activation Tool. If you want to activate a Tablet or any wearable device on the network, you have to follow the alternative options below.
The alternative options are to contact MetroPCS customer support at 1-888-863-8768 or visit a MetroPCS store near you.
