I currently have a 1st gen Moto X on the Rebulic 2.0 plan. I’m considering switching to a newer BYOD Google Pixel phone on the Republic 3.0 plan.
(1) If I switch in the middle of my billing cycle, would I get a prorated refund of my 2.0 plan and pay a prorated rate for the rest of the month on the new 3.0 plan?
(2) What about data on the first month of new Republic 3.0 plan? Assuming again that I make the switch in the middle of the billing cycle, if I want 1 Gb of data on the new plan, would I have to pay $5 for it and then lose what I don’t use at the end of the monthly billing cycle even if though I will have had access to the data for less than a month?
(3) I understand that I will have to purchase a Republic Wireless SIM Card. If I later want to switch from one GSM phone to another GSM phone, is it possible to simply move the SIM Card to another Republic 3.0 compatible phone, or will I have to buy a new SIM Card every time I switch phones?
(4) Suppose for some reason that I later decide to go from the Republic 3.0 plan back to an older Moto phone on the Republic 2.0 plan and I do that in the middle of the monthly billing cycle. How would that work as far as pro-rated billing goes? Further suppose that I want to switch to the $5 WiFi-only plan. Could I do that immediately or would I have to wait for the end of the monthly billing cycle?
