All phones on our My Choice (4.0) plans can be used as a hotspot. Phones on our older Republic Refund (2.0) Plans™ can also be used as a hotspot as long as the phone is running Android Lollipop (5.0) or higher and has version 2.1 or higher of the Republic Wireless app installed. Phones on our 1.0 & DEFY plans cannot used as a hotspot.
