Should a BYOP Be "Manufacturer" or "SIM" Unlocked?


Determine if a Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) is a supported Republic Wireless 3.0 Phone


Manufacturer unlocked.

Additional Notes

Factory unlocked, or manufacturer unlocked, typically refers to the original condition of the phone.

SIM unlocked may mean that a third-party "unlocked" the phone from the original carrier's SIM card. SIM unlocked phones will not work with Republic Wireless.

Use discretion and purchase from a reputable seller.
