Can I Change My Bill Cycle Date?

 Heads up!

With the recent 5.0 plan release, some of the information in this article might be outdated and inaccurate. We are working on this as quickly as we can

Environment

  • Bill cycle date
  • Any Republic Wireless account

Answer

Members are unable to change their bill cycle date. If your credit card is declined on your billing date, there is a grace period before a service interruption occurs. The Update Credit Card feature in your Account portal provides you the opportunity to process a late payment with no punitive fee.

If it is necessary to have your bill cycle date changed permanently, please open a help ticket in advance of the date you wish to be billed. The process requires us to take the following steps on the date you want to be billed

  • We must first cancel every phone on your account
  • We must wait for the account to close out (which can take an hour, sometimes more)
  • After hearing from us that the account is fully canceled, you would then re-activate your phones.
    • Note: Activation must take place on the phone, so this is not a step we can do for you.
  • Once you notify us that the phones are re-activated, we would restore your former number to the phones. 

Note: This process requires us to cancel all phones on the account for a period of time; calling and texting will not be operational during that time.
