Got new phone. Do not have a SIM card for the phone. Old Moto E4 phone Did not have a SIM card to transfer into the new phone. How do i get a SIM card to activate this new phone?

The Moto E4 does indeed have a SIM card. Here’s directions on how it is removed: https://support.motorola.com/us/en/Solution/MS120255

That being said, not all Republic SIMs can be moved from phone-to-phone. Take a look at the word Republic on the SIM, does the SIM say Republic in all gray/black or is the “public” part in green? If in green, that SIM can be moved to your new phone and after that’s done, you’ll install and open the Republic App on the new phone to complete activation.

If it is all gray/black come back here and share your ZIP code and we’ll figure out next steps.
