MPCS New Promo - Buy Galaxy S7 and get a free Gear VR

Similar to T-Mobile promo, Metro PCS is advertising free Gear VR for S7 purchase.

Although the web doesn't have ANY details about the phone and there's no mention about S7 Edge. So I am not sure what would be the final price of S7. BTW T-Mobile sells S7 for $669.99 and S7 Edge for $779.99 so this will give you rough estimate of MPCS version of the phone.

Since no information is available and it's limited time offer, you have to move quickly.

1. Pre-register now

2. Purchase S7 by 3/18 (S7 Edge not available??)

3. Fill out online form and upload receipt image by 3/31

Before Register

After register, this page will apear

So, what all is involved in doing this? The more I research, the more confused I seem to be getting. Will it need to be unlocked? Will I have to buy a new sim (or is the one in my current S5 fine)? What other problems may I run into?
You would need a new sim (the S7 uses a nano sim). You just call metro from your phone give them the imei number of the S7. That's it. T-Mobile branded phones don't need anything else done.
