The Moto E (2nd Gen.) is a 3G & 4G LTE capable smartphone. This phone will use the best possible speed for your location when using the Republic Wireless Plans 2.0.
Note: If upgrading to a Moto E (2nd Gen.) from a phone that has one of the Republic Wireless Plans 1.0, your existing plan will move with your upgrade and you'll be able to remain on one of those plans until August 1, 2016, as long as that service line remains active.
The following plans are available for a Moto E (2nd Gen.):

I bought another Republic phone recently. Can I return the other phone in exchange for Moto E (2nd Gen.)?
There is no trade in program available, but if you're within your 14-day return window, you may return your other Republic phone for a full refund (minus initial shipping cost) and purchase a new Moto E (2nd Gen.).
If I choose to upgrade to Moto E (2nd Gen.), will my contacts and apps automatically transfer over?
There are two primary ways to make sure your contacts and apps transfer to your new device:
- Sync your contacts
You can sync your contacts to your Google account from your old phone. Once you have your new phone, they’ll automatically load when you sign in on your new phone.
- Use Motorola's Migrate app
Motorola's Migrate app is designed to make the process of transferring your contacts, apps, photos, even text message history easier than ever. Check it out on the Google Play store. The Migrate app is pre-installed on the Moto E (2nd Gen.), but you’ll need to install it on your old phone as well (it’s compatible with any Android phone version 2.2 and above).
Does the 10% beta discount apply to Moto E (2nd Gen.)?
If you’re an existing member who owns a Motorola DEFY XT purchased by September 25, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. ET, you’re eligible for a 10% discount off your new monthly plan when you transfer that existing line to the Moto X or any future phones, including Moto E (2nd Gen.). This discount will stay with you for as long as that phone line remains active with Republic, even if you transfer that line to a different Republic phone later. Please see the Beta Member Service Discount FAQ for more info.
