Are there any downsides to BYOP?
I checked the coverage where I live and where I travel, and it looks like GSM (T-Mobile network) is better than Sprint/CDMA.
Right now, due to sales, buying an unlocked & inactivated Moto G7 / G7 Power / G7 Play phone from Best Buy or Motorola is less expensive than buying from Republic Wireless. Do I give up anything if I don’t get the phone through Republic Wireless? I assume that Best Buy or Motorola only sell US versions of the phone(s) to US customers (unlike Amazon).
I’m replacing a Republic Wireless Moto X, 1st Gen. Obviously my RW 2.0 phone plan has to change to the 4.0 plan. I can still keep my number if I BYOP, right?
