 Considering canceling? Did you know...

If you're experiencing coverage or service-related issues, we may be able to help. To let our dedicated team of technicians evaluate the issues you're experiencing, please e-mail We'd love to have you stay with Republic Wireless.

Before you cancel, be sure to review our Money Back Guarantee to determine if you’re eligible for a refund, as well as our Return and Replacement Policy and our Terms of Service.  

Important note:  If you plan to move your number to another cell phone service, do not cancel! Cancellation prior to transferring the number will forfeit the number. Begin the transfer process with your new cell phone service. Your Republic service for the phone number will be canceled once the number transfer is complete. See How to Transfer Your Number from Republic Wireless for further information.
