Thanks @sarahd – I’m actually looking to switch phones. As an iOS user currently, I’m hoping to transition to the pixel. Wasn’t sure if this was supported on RW. Glad to hear that it is!!

FYI, you can find a full list of all of the supported phone models in the document here: Republic Wireless Phones – Republic Help

I’m looking at buying a used Pixel on eBay. If it’s “unlocked” am I good to go, or are there other features that need to line up so that the phone is compatible with RW?

Follow the advise above your entry … provided by @andreas … this is the official listing of phones sold and the BYOD supported ones


#6

I don’t see any advice. I just see a list of phones.

I referenced you to the official listing of supported phones, this is preferred to my doing a copy paste and then when someone else has the same question later the information that I posted may well be out of date.
