Bring Your Own Phone--Samsung Galaxy S6

Hello! I am a current Republic user and I would like to get an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6. I know the phone is on the “approved” list for Republic, but I see that the phone doesn’t have a Sim card slot for the Republic Sim card. Can I still use the phone on my plan?

Thanks!

You will need to obtain the Republic Wireless SIM, either from them or from Amazon.
Here is a screenshot of the location (from the web)

Hi @noellel.tqzwnr,

You may bring your own Samsung Galaxy S6 and as pointed out by @jben it has the needed slot for a Republic Wireless SIM. That S6 needs to be a specific model (SM-G920T) running one of the following Android operating system builds:

NRD90M.G920TUES5EQF1
NRD90M.G920TUEU5EQD2
MMB29K.G920TUES5DQD1
MMB29K.G920TUES5DQC1
MMB29K.G920TUES5DQB1
MMB29K.G920TUES5DQA1
MMB29K.G920TUES5DPL1
MMB29K.G920TUES5DPK1
MMB29K.G920TUES5DPI2
MMB29K.G920TUES4DPH2
MMB29K.G920TUEU4DPG2
MMB29K.G920TUES4DPF1
MMB29K.G920TUEU3DPD6

The above infomration is referenced by Republic here: Republic Wireless Phones – Republic Help.

If the S6 you wish to bring is a different model number and/or not running one of the above referenced software builds, it will not work on Republic’s network. Alternatively, look for Samsung’s manufacturer’s SKU SM-G920TZKAXAR as shown on Samsung’s website here:

Thank you jben, this was super helpful! I was able to successfully instal my new Republic SIM card with those instructions.
