Can I Activate a Phone While Outside of the U.S.?



  • Republic Wireless phones can only be activated while in the U.S. or Canada 
  • It is not possible to activate a phone elsewhere due to being unable to download the Republic Wireless app from the Play Store while traveling abroad

Additional Notes

You may be able to complete the activation in Canada as it pulls everything over WiFi. However, if it is not a strong WiFi connection, the activation may fail if the cellular portion does not complete over the WiFi so we do not guarantee it.
