Will I Need a New SIM Card When I Deactivate My Phone?



Our 3.0 SIM cards can only be used within 20 days of the service being canceled. If you're planning to use the SIM card in a different device, please contact Republic Help first with information about the phone you plan to activate.

Additional Notes

If your SIM card has been inactive beyond 20 days, you will need a new SIM card. GSM SIM cards can be purchased through the online store.

CDMA SIM cards are not sold online and must be requested by opening a Help Ticket. Please note that all 3.0 phones are able to support GSM SIM cards. However, only certain phones are able to support CDMA SIM cards. For more information see:
