Republic Wireless 3.0 Phones

We are no longer offering the My Choice plan for activation. 

  • If you are replacing a phone that currently has an activated My Choice GSM SIM card, you can replace the phone with another phone from the list below by moving the SIM card to the compatible replacement phone. 
  • When replacing a phone with a My Choice CDMA SIM card, you must upgrade to our 5.0 plan as we are no longer able to activate CDMA SIM cards and they cannot be moved from phone to phone.
  • When replacing a phone with a My Choice SIM card that has been canceled or deactivated, you must upgrade to our 5.0 plan.

See: How to Tell If a Phone Is Active on GSM or CDMA


Note: Phones currently sold in our online store are locked to our 5.0 plan and will not work with the My Choice plan.

The following phones work with Republic Wireless My Choice (4.0) plans and can be used as replacement phones only when the phone being replaced is currently activated with a My Choice GSM SIM card that can be moved to the replacement phone.

Only the specific model numbers listed, North American Factory Unlocked versions, and if applicable the associated build numbers listed below are compatible with our service. If you are bringing a phone from, or have purchased a phone through, another carrier (Verizon, AT&T, etc) it will not be compatible with our service.  If a phone has another company's brand associated with it (Verizon, AT&T, etc) it is not officially supported, even if the model number below matches and even if the carrier-branded phone has been unlocked.
