2 phones, same phone #, depending on which country I'm in


#1

Can I use 2 phones (older Moto G and newer one TBD) for the same account so that I can switch between the $5 plan and something with data, calls, and texts?

I have a Moto G (1st Gen) that works exactly how I want it to when I’m outside of the USA. I love the $5 wifi option.

When I do visit the US, which might be for a few days every 2-3 months, the same phone doesn’t work so well – this is when I upgrade my plan to the Republic Refund + 0.5 GB plan. It just doesn’t work how I need it to work – too slow and so on.

As a result, I’d like to buy a newer phone for only those times when I am in the US. I don’t need to have the latest and greatest. Thinking of getting a Moto X 3rd Gen. But something that shows me maps that doesn’t crash continually, for example. I know with a newer phone that I can’t drop down to the $5 wifi only plan. Which is why I’m thinking of having 2 Republic Wireless phones.

Can I do this?

Thanks in advance, J.

If one has a 3.0 phone and a Legacy phone you can activate the 3.0 phone as a line replacement when in the US and pay the My choice plans and when leaving the US reactivate the Legacy plan on the Refund plans ($10 for current billing cycle and you can move down to the $5 after that)

note after 20 days the 3.0 Phones SIM will expire and would need to be replace the next time you come to the States)
