Can I Keep and Restore My Phone Number After 30 Days of Being Canceled or Deactivated?

 

Environment

  • All Republic Wireless numbers
  • Phone number was previously used on the same account

Answer

No.  If your service was canceled more than 30 days ago, your number is unrestorable as it has been reassigned outside of Republic Wireless.  

When a member's phone is canceled, it places the number back into the number queue for reassignment. There is a 30-day period where the number should be in limbo and not be used with another account; however, there are some instances where a number has been reassigned within the 30 days.
