Call for Early Adopter BETA testers: Moto E and Moto G Fast


The Moto E and Moto G Fast have been added for support and no additional BETA testing is needed. We appreciate the feedback we received from @andrewj and @johnny5, and their willingness to be early adopters!

We’re looking for a few Motorola enthusiasts who would like to participate in our Early Adopters program with early access to test the new Motorola E or Motorola G Fast on our service.


  • You must submit an interest form that includes a legal disclaimer, and pass a basic screening process.
  • You must have functional coverage with our GSM carrier partner.
  • You must provide your own phone from either of the options below, available from Motorola.
    • Moto E, model XT2052-1, PAJH0002US
    • Moto G Fast, XT2045-3, PAHN0000US

Please make sure you do not buy a carrier-subsidized version. We support only the North American, factory unlocked version of these phones.

You will be expected to provide feedback in our #beta category.

If you are interested in participating, please reply below, or message me personally for further details.


I currently have a Moto g7 - would I be eligible for this. Have had Motorolas since joining Republic. Never did any testing. Might like to. Thanks you.

I’ll buy it when it works out.

My wife and I were early adopters beta on Moto x 1st gen, I now have a MOTO G5 Plus which I am happy with , She has had the MOTO X Pure, which has been slowing down. (she claims)

What would Beta testing as opposed to purchasing do for us?

What are the specs of the Moto G Fast, fingerprint, face recognition, NFC accelerometer gyro … Price point online looks like $199.

As noted by @southpaw, you buy the phone. Specs are on

Hi @Mar-52,

It looks like others have answered the question about purchasing the phone and finding the specs. I find the specs to be a bit tricky to find on the Motorola site, so please let me know if you haven’t located them yet.

The idea behind these early-adopter tests is that we have some Community members who really enjoy having early access to bring phones to our network. They’re also willing to provide feedback to help us ensure that a wider variety of phones can be added to our network, help us detect any possible issues and speed the approval process a bit.

So it’s not so much a matter of what BETA testing would do for you, but more so whether it’s something you would enjoy.

Thanks @josephs.humgw3. Early-adopter testing isn’t for everyone. Which phone are you considering, and why?

Moto e, when I can buy it after it’s been out for awhile and hear people’s thoughts about it

I would be interested in testing the Moto G Fast but I have some questions first. I am currently on the no data plan. Would I have to upgrade my plan to include data? If I do have to upgrade my plan, would I have to pay for it or will Republic pay for it?

Hi @leroyw.pbmvny,

If you’re currently on the My Choice Talk and Text plan ($15 plus tax), you would not need to change your plan.

If you’re currently on one of our legacy plans using the Moto E (1st or 2nd Gen), Moto G (1st or 3rd Gen) or Moto X (1st or 2nd Gen) then your plan would change to the My Choice Talk and Text plan. Republic Wireless would not pay any difference in the plan pricing.

Will the testers’ phones be “grandfathered” and be able to continue use of the phones with RW service if it’s decided the phone(s) will not placed on the approval list? Thanks.


Hi @PlaneTherapist,

Are you interested in testing one of the above phones?

I’m not going to make a blanket statement promising a specific outcome if the phone is not supported.

As I mentioned when you asked a very similar question in a previous call for early adopters topic, people who enjoy early-adopter testing understand that there are no guaranteed results. They kind of thrive on that, and on the opportunity to “break things.” If something comes up where the phone cannot be supported on the network, we’ll work through the possibilities individually with each tester.

Would be interested in the beta. Would purchase a Moto g Fast.




Greetings @southpaw. I am interested in this beta. I’m undecided on the Moto E or G Fast, but am definitely interested in one or the other. When is the beta scheduled to begin?


I had a G5 and had problems with it and actually went back to the 4. I’d be interested in beta testing the G.


Hi @kamaur,

The Early Adopter BETA is currently open and I believe we have our first G FAST tester activating as we type.

Just bought the moto fast and realized it isn’t on the republic network. Would love to be apart of this.

Hi @debm.hc2369,

Do you have the phone in-hand, or is it still on its way to you? I’ll be glad to see if we can add you to the BETA, just trying to determine how quickly I need to act.

Possibly interested in Moto g fast. I can’t use a gsm phone in my area. I can only get service with cdma. Is this not compatible with this phone?
