Republic Wireless Phones (5.0 Plans)

Phone Compatibility on 5.0 Plans 


 For phones sold in our online store since 12/1/21...

All phones sold on as of December 1, 2021 are certified and fully compatible with our 5.0 plans, and with the exception of the TCL Flip, include support for carrier WiFi calling. 

Note: For phones compatible with our My Choice and other legacy plans, see: Republic Wireless Legacy Phones


Our Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) program includes phones purchased elsewhere as well as phones purchased from Republic Wireless prior to December 1, 2021.  Locked phones purchased elsewhere need to be unlocked.


iPhone BYOP

The Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) program includes all iPhones compatible with Apple's most recent iOS version -- generally iPhone 6s and newer models.

Note: iPhone 6 and below are not supported.

The easiest way to check your phone's model information is to open the Settings app, click General, and then click About.


Android BYOP

We welcome Android phones manufactured for use in North America after 2017 that support 4G and VoLTE. Some features (like VoLTE and WiFi calling) vary by the phone manufacturer’s implementation and may not perform the same on every cellular network. We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on our plan purchases to allow you time to evaluate your phone on our network.

For Android phones, before installing your SIM card, make sure you have the latest Android update installed on the phone as this impacts compatibility on some phones. Watch for new updates after installing the SIM card as well.
