Are all of your new phones locked? Is there a way to know if the phone is compatible before purchasing unlocked phone from Amazon?

Are all of your new phones locked? Is there a way to know if the phone is compatible before purchasing unlocked phone from Amazon?

All of the new phones are unlocked. You can find the models that have been certified for use with RW in this document:

Yes or no would help much more.

No. None of the new phones are locked. Make sure to match the model and SKU of the phone to the one listed here: Bring your own phone to Republic! | Republic Wireless. Hope that helps!

Another piece of the puzzle is your coverage.

I’d encourage you to punch in your zip code on this page

Top Android Smartphones, payment plans optional | Republic Wireless

If it lists all the phones then you have good GSM coverage in your area. In which case you can buy any of the listed phones either from Republic or from Amazon. If you order it from Amazon you will have to make sure that you are ordering the exact same model number and you will also need a Republic Wireless 3.0 SIM card which may be purchased from RW or from Amazon.

If,however, the zip code check only lists some of the phone, and excludes some of the phones, then CDMA coverage is better in your area. Currently, the only way to get CDMA coverage on your new phone is buy the phone from RW.
