Can I Keep My Phone Number When I Cancel?

Environment

  • Cancelation request menu
  • No "Submit" option after selecting "I Want to Keep My Number"

Answer

No; If you cancel your phone's service, the number cannot be transferred to other providers or activated on a replacement Republic Wireless phone.

If you want to recover a number that has been canceled within the last 30 days, re-activate the phone with a new number and open a Help Ticket to request that XXX-XXX-XXXX number be restored.

Additional Notes

If you want to leave Republic Wireless, transfer your number to your new carrier before canceling.
