BYOP s7 cdma sim available?


Wife has Moto X1 with CDMA and I have Galaxy S7 with GSM. We like the coverage combination, but X1 is getting old. We’d like to buy her an approved BYOP Galaxy S7 and get a Republic CDMA SIM for it. Can this be done?

We too like having the CDMA/GSM combination. My wife has a G5+ with CDMA, and mine is a GSM. I purchased mine as a BYOP, so I was guaranteed GSM, but we purchased hers directly from RW, and found a zip code that we were sure only had CDMA coverage. They sent her G5+ with the CDMA. We’re really happy campers (literally) because the combination gives us coverage almost everywhere.
