Objective

  • Swap phone numbers between phones that are on the same account

  1. Cancel one phone on the account to deactivate it
  2. Open the Republic app on the phone that was just deactivated
  3. Login using your Republic account email & password
  4. "Assign" the desired number to the phone (this will deactivate the phone currently with that number) 
  5. Continue activation

Additional Notes

While it's uncommon that we're unable to retrieve a dormant phone number, we do recommend waiting no more than 20 days to request a number be restored.
