Here’s the story: I have a BYOP Nexus 6P, my wife has a BYOP Moto X Pure Edition. We both got a GSM SIM card right when they were offered.
Long story short, GSM is terrible where I live, and because of that, along with the deep sleep Doze feature on Android 6.0 and 7.0, I was missing a lot of phone calls. Since my cell is my primary number for people to reach me for work, that just wouldn’t do. So I bailed for Google Fi which, in fairness, has been great. Just more expensive.
Since then, Republic Wireless has started testing BYOP CDMA activation. I just received one for my wife’s Moto X Pure Edition two days ago and it activated without a hitch! RW worked their magic and did the thing for which one CDMA provider still has you visit a store (https://www.sprint.com/landings/bring-your-own-phone/).
My question and purpose of this post is to ask anyone who has received a BYOP CDMA sim card to report on success/trouble with activation/service quality. I really want to come back to RW, but I’m hesitant to do so without some assurance . Thanks!
