Republic Wireless Phones

Please select which type of phones you'd like to know more about:

Republic Wireless 3.0 Phones

The following phones work with Republic Wireless My Choice (4.0) plans. Only the model numbers, 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 mode number below matches and even if the carrier-branded phone has been unlocked.


1BYOP Motorola phones will need to be North American factory unlocked, and on software channel RETUS, AMZ, or FI to be compatible with Republic Wireless. Any other software channel cannot be activated or used. To find the software channel on your Motorola phone, please follow these steps. Please note that factory unlocked is not the same thing as an unlocked carrier-branded phone and carrier-branded models are not compatible.

Please note: Phones purchased through Software Channel CC (Consumer Cellular) are not compatible with Republic Wireless.
