Are Moto G 1st gen phones locked?
While not locked per se, Republic’s legacy phones (Moto E1, E2, G1, G3, X1 and X2) are specifically manufactured to accommodate Republic’s blended WiFi/cell technology. Due to technological incompatibilities, it’s not possible to use these phones on another carrier’s network domestic or international. Republic’s official word on the matter is here: FAQ: Are Republic Wireless Phones Locked or Unlocked? – Republic Help.
The above said legacy Republic phones sell very well on the secondary market as is. If you wish to recoup some of your investment, you might consider selling your Republic phone via an e-commerce site like eBay or Swappa.
