Bringing my own phone / LTE

I just tested an unlocked Xiaomi phone using a T-Mobile SIM and it worked just fine. Does this mean it can work on Republic too? It’s a Xiaomi Redmi Go phone

Hi @bobf.c3ghxm and welcome to the Member Community. Here’s a document that will explain the best way to see if your device is fully compatible. Full compatibility requires the use of the Republic app.

The Xiaomi is not on the list of supported phones so it is not compatible. A quick test using the procedure can confirm this.

Here’s a link with compatible phones –

Hope this helps!


With no disrespect to @freddyp

tl;dr No that phone can’t be used with Republic and whether it works with T-Mobile or not is not relevant.

Thanks – having an app makes things simpler. Alas, it isn’t supported …
