Old Moto G3 (3rd Gen.) from Republic Wireless
No Carrier At Present (Previous Phone)
Maybe it’s from being a child of Depression parents, but I’d like to make use of my old RW Moto G3 to use as an MP3 player/Remote/etc.
I’ve seen other threads like this, but I’m not confident in what was said in regards to how to set it up properly. I realize that this phone from Republic has special ROM that prevents it from being used as a phone by another carrier (i.e. a “true unlock”), but:
- Can I use the Android operating system and its default apps?
- Can I use the WiFi without having an RW account?
- Can I update the Android OS and its default apps?
How hokey would it be?
If so, can someone please provide a link to the proper clean process?
