How Do I Prevent an Unauthorized Transfer of My Phone Number to a Different Carrier?

Environment

  • My Account Portal
  • Privacy
  • Un-authorized number transfer

Answer

Be sure to keep your information private and assign an account pin to your account via instructions here: How to Update Your Account PIN

As your service provider, when someone submits a number transfer request to transfer a number out of Republic Wireless, we confirm that the following account information matches the number in question:

  • Your Account Number: This is your Republic Wireless 10 digit phone number
  • Your PIN: This is your account PIN and is different from your log-in password 

If these items do not match up with a number transfer request, we do not approve the number transfer out request, thus keeping your number from being transferred out without your authorization.
