I have a Nexus 5X with a different carrier that I’d like to start using with republic wireless. Can I use this phone with Republic and how would I activate it.
As long as the Nexus 5X is model LG-H790 (the North American version), you can bring it to Republic Wireless. BYOP uses Republic’s GSM partner (T-mobile) so please make sure you have good coverage. If you get a message “Bring your own phone is not supported for your location,” this means the GSM coverage is not good for your area.
Coverage Check | Republic Wireless
If coverage is good, you will need to order a SIM card at Republic Wireless Bring your own phone to Republic! | Republic Wireless or Amazon Amazon.com: Republic Wireless SIM Starter Kit: Cell Phones & Accessories
