Can I get a Sim Card for an Unlock Phone?


#1

If I’m interested in buying a Motorola g6 play which is an Unlock phone. I would like to get on the republic wireless plans with it. Can I get a SIM card for it?


#2

as long as the Moto G6 Play is the North American Factory unlocked (and not just carrier unlocked) Model number XT1922-9 then the BYOD SIM will work (Bring your own phone to Republic! | Republic Wireless)


#3

If you have access to the phone then install the republic wireless app

to confirm compatibility. If you are acquiring it from a third party reseller such as on ebay… then confirm the exact model number as noted by @drm186 above before proceeding with buying the phone.

So if the Model number is TAA30001US then it won’t work. Correct?


#5

Are you certain about TAA30001US? Might it be PAA30001US? The number you reference looks like it might be a Motorola manufacturer’s part number (sometimes listed by retailers as an alternative to a model number) but these typically begin with a P rather than a T. Alternatively, if shopping online, might you have a link to the listing you’re looking at?

That is what the Best Buy people told me when I asked them what the Model Number is for the Motorola g6 play.


#7

I think either they misspoke or you misheard. PAA30001US is the manufacturer’s part number for the Moto G6 Play that is sold by Best Buy and is compatible with Republic, I don’t believe a phone with the TAA model number exists.

I believe this is the phone at Best Buy: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/motorola-moto-g6-play-with-32gb-memory-cell-phone-unlocked-deep-indigo/6221302.p?skuId=6221302. It is indeed PAA30001US not TAA30001US and is compatible with Republic. Please note, however, that Best Buy cannot activate a phone with Republic and, therefore, you would be paying the $199 “I’ll activate later price” not $99. For what it’s worth, Republic is selling the G6 Play for the same $199.
