Hi, I am thinking of returning to Republic after a few years. When clicking through the menus on the homepage, I see that BYOP is not supported in my area. I don’t want to purchase a phone directly from republic, because phones like the Moto G5 can be found much cheaper on the used market.
If I purchase a Republic Wireless phone from eBay or Swappa, I’m assuming it will work in my area because it supports Republics CDMA partner (or something like that). My question is if I buy a Republic Wireless Moto G5 from eBay, will I be allowed to activate it using a BYOP sim kit if BYOP is not supported in my area? I just want to make sure that Republic will actually let me activate a used phone, which should be the same as what is sold on their site.
Another quick question as a returning customer, are there multiple plans now? I see the My Choice plan, but I saw reference to the Republic Rebate plan in the forums and I didn’t know if they are still doing that. Also, what is currently being worked on in Republic Labs? Would appreciate any advice on buying a used phone.
