BYOP - Do I have this right?

My Moto X4 has some major issue that is preventing it from loading past the blue Moto logo screen, so I’m going to try to buy a new phone at Best Buy today. I’m paranoid that I’m going to get the wrong one and it won’t work with Republic. This is the phone I’m looking at: Google Pixel 3a

Will this work with Republic? I also think (from what I read on Republic) that I can reuse my SIM card from my old phone. We’re on the My Choice plan and it’s GSM. Is that right?

Thank you!

Hi @melissaj.nhbh7a,

The Pixel 3a you linked is indeed Republic compatible.

Also, if the SIM currently residing in your Moto X4 is GSM, it would move to the referenced Pixel 3a or other Republic compatible phone. If uncertain the SIM is GSM, please let us know. Otherwise, once past initial setup on the new phone (follow on screen prompts for that), move the SIM. Next install or update (if necessary) Republic’s mobile app. Finally, open Republic’s app to complete a brief activation sequence.

Your number and My Choice plan would move to the Pixel 3a. Your Moto X4 would be simultaneously deactivated.
