Install apps

Apps from Google Play

Most Google Play Store apps are free, but if you purchase an app you'll be charged through Google (not Republic Wireless).  You'll be prompted to enter your credit card info when buying an app.  If you need more info on how this process works, please visit the Google Wallet site here. 

To install an app, choose from one of the following options: 

  1. Tapicon_home2.pngHome.
  2. Tap the Play Store icon icon_playstore.png on your Home screen.
  3. Browse or search for apps.
  4. When you’ve found an app you’d like to download, tap Download.
  5. Once the app has finished downloading, tap Install.  


  1. Tapicon_home2.png Home.
  2. Tap icon_apps.png All Apps.
  3. In the top right hand corner, tap the white Play Store icon: icon_playstore.png
  4. Browse or search for apps.
  5. When you’ve found an app you’d like to download, tap Install.
  6. Tap Accept & download


  1. Tap icon_home2.pngHome.
  2. Tap  icon_apps.png All Apps.
  3. Scroll down until you see the icon_playstore.png Play Store icon.
  4. Browse or search for apps.
  5. When you’ve found an app you’d like to download, tap Download.
  6. Once the app has finished downloading, tap Install

After you install an app, a shortcut for that app appears on the home screen and in the Apps list. 

NOTE: We won't be able to support any third party apps that you download.  We can only support the apps that come pre-installed on your phone. 

Move apps to an SD card 

See Freeing Up Space on the DEFY XT for info on how to move apps to your DEFY XT's SD card. 

Note: Preinstalled apps cannot be moved to an SD card. 

Remove apps 

  1. Tap icon_home2.pngHome.
  2. Select the Play Store icon from the Home screen or by tapping icon_apps.png All Apps and then icon_playstore.png Play Store.
  3. Tap Menu.
  4. Tap My Apps.
  5. Select the app you want to remove and tap Uninstall

Note: Preinstalled apps can be disabled, but not removed.
