  • Only account owners can change a service line to the annual payment option
  • You cannot make changes to the base plan during the twelve month period

Transitioning to the Annual Payment Option
  • Plan changes to the annual payment option will go into effect on your next bill cycle date
  • Whatever plan you're on when you change to the annual payment option is the plan you will be on for the full 12 months
  • If you would like to change your monthly data before you change to the annual payment option, you may do so by following the instructions in How to Change Your Plan
    • Note: If you're increasing the monthly data, this change will take effect immediately, but if you're decreasing the monthly data, which doesn't take effect until your next bill cycle date, you'll need to wait until your downgrade request is complete and then place your request to change to the annual payment plan
  • If you're currently on one of our previous plans, such as Republic Wireless Beta (1.0) or Republic Refund (2.0) plans, and you want to change to the annual payment plan, you will first need to change to a My Choice compatible phone and then place a request to change to the annual payment plan

To switch to the Annual Payment Option, please follow the instructions in How to Switch to the Annual Payment Option
