 No longer supported

The phone(s) described in this article can no longer be activated with Republic. Please see Republic Wireless Phones for information on currently supported phones.




The SIM card is used to provide LTE data access to these phones.  The SIM card doesn't provide any WiFi service connection (as on 3.0 phones) nor does this store the Republic Wireless phone number.
