I currently have a Moto X, 1st gen. on the Republic Wireless 2.0 Refund plan. I believe it uses Sprint’s CDMA network, but I’m not 100% sure. Republic Wireless only used one network back when I joined in 2014.
If I upgrade my phone, I need to move to the 4.0 My Choice plan. If I BYOP, then I switch to the GSM network, which has better coverage where I travel anyhow. This raises a few questions:
- Are there any charges for switching networks (CDMA -> GSM) or plans?
- Can I keep my number?
- Will I lose existing voicemail messages?
I assume there are no charges for upgrading plans, because I don’t remember any charge for moving from the 1.0 plan to the 2.0 plan. I assume I can keep my number. I thought I should check anyhow. I’m not sure about keeping voicemail messages, though.
