I live in area code where “BYOP is not available in your area.” I work in an area where All phones are available to me and BYOP is available.
There are deals and phone sales and I would love to bring my own device and get a Republic Wireless SIM. How bad will my service be if I activate my phone at my work address then go home? Will it just not work? I don’t plan to purchase any data plan but only use wifi data.
If I buy an unlocked phone, why wouldn’t I be able to activate it with republic wireless at my address where “BYOP is not available in your area?” Or would I be able to but the coverage would be poor? I guess i don’t understand why I would need to purchase specifically through Republic wireless in this situation.
Thanks in advance for your help and clarifications.
