You can move to one of our 5.0 plans on your existing account at any time during your billing cycle.
For step-by-step instructions, see How to Change from a My Choice 4.0 or Lower Plan to a Republic 5.0 Plan.
When you select a 5.0 plan, you will prepay for the 5.0 plan for your first month.
Note: This is a prepayment that will apply to your first bill cycle upon activation.
Once you receive your SIM and activate your phone, your new plan will become effective.
Your prepayment will apply towards the 5.0 plan for that billing cycle and your bill cycle date will remain the same. Your account will also be credited the total (sum) of the two amounts below:
- You will be credited for the unused days of your legacy plan* (e.g., if there are 10 days left in your billing cycle as of your activation date, you will be credited for 10 days of your legacy plan) plus
- You will be credited part of the prepayment amount based on your activation date. (e.g., if there are 10 days left in your billing cycle as of your activation date, you will be credited for 20 days of the prepayment amount)
You will end up receiving one credit for all of the unused time on both plans. This credit will be available on your account within 1 week of activation.
You will also be provided with prorated high-speed data of the 5.0 plan for the month of activation (e.g., if there are 10 days left in your billing cycle as of your activation date, you will be provided with 1/3rd of the high-speed data in the 5.0 plan - based on 10 out of 30 days).
Note: On your available data, in the above example you will see 1/3 of your data in your new 5.0 plan remaining upon plan change (2/3 will show as used). This shows you that you have been provided with 1/3 of the data given there are 10 out of 30 days left in your bill cycle
- Republic Refund members will be provided with a refund based on unused data in their plans
- Annual plan members will be credited for the unused period of your annual plan (e.g. if you’re 4 months into your annual plan, you will receive an account credit for the remaining 8 months)
