Can I activate and use a non-Republic Moto G3 in place of an active Moto E?


#1

The title pretty much says it all. Can I activate and use a non-Republic Moto G3 in place of an active Moto E?

My mom’s Moto E is about to give up the ghost. The battery is dying. I see Moto G3’s for sale on Ebay and other places for reasonable prices. I currently use a Moto G3 on Republic myself. That is the reason I’m asking. I love that phone.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Unfortunately, there is no way to use a non-RW Moto G3 with RW service. You can look for
republic wireless specific phones on ebay if you want to stay on the existing plan with the Moto E.
Quick search found this one

Can I transfer an existing active RW Moto G3 to different existing active account?

I don’t know how much longer these will be available, but here’s a search I saved when I was looking for new (old stock) legacy plan phones on eBay:
