I ask this question every few months hoping things will change: Are there any Virgin Mobile phones available that I could use on the Republic Network. I have a lot of money tied up with Virgin, want to use it to purchase a phone and use it on Republic. Thx.
I’m afraid not at this time. In fact, no carrier branded phones are presently qualified to work with Republic. To date, only factory unlocked variants have been approved.
Good evening @lucya.i3i7q1!
Unfortunately, you cannot bring your Virgin Mobile phone(s) to Republic at this time. In order to take advantage of BYOD, you will need a factory unlocked (a phone sold unlocked-not unlocked by a carrier or third-party) GSM phone with a matching model number to the ones listed at this link: Bring your own phone to Republic! | Republic Wireless. You can also find out which phones are currently supported under the BYOP program at the link as well. Have a great evening!
