Issue Description

moto e 2nd gen
Republic Refund 0.5GB

I have just purchased a new moto g5s plus that i am ready to activate. I know how to do this so that is not an issue. What I want to know is if I can keep the old phone active on my existing number on the old phone initiate a new number on the new phone but then transfer the old number to my new phone in the future and if so how long do i have to do this? Thanks.

during activation you will have a option to activate as a new line

#3

I know that my question is all about waiting and can it be done? This means keeping both phones active for a time TBD.

#4

one can have support swap the numbers at anytime (there is no need minimum or maximum time before doing this)

If members don’t mind having one phone deactivated for a while there is an official procedure we can go through. How to Swap Phone Numbers on the Same Account – Republic Help
