Will My New Phone Come With a CDMA or GSM Sim Card?


  • Republic Wireless online store


It depends. Our algorithm tries to pair your new phone with a SIM card most optimized for coverage at the billing zip code on file, but there are times where human experience trumps what's shown on the coverage map. If you know you need a CDMA SIM card for best coverage with your new phone, please open a help ticket for our team to either confirm that yes, a CDMA SIM card will come preinstalled, or our help team can send one out alongside the phone order.
