I’ve seen phones on other sites for less. Just thought I’d see if anyone out there knows if they do. Thanks.
They do not. If you choose to purchase elsewhere, please be certain the phone is an exact model and (in some cases) build number match for those listed here: Republic Wireless 3.0 FAQs. Lots of other good information in that FAQ as well.
Republic BYOD means for 3.0 phones you can just buy it from the cheaper sites

It’s mostly a convenience thing. If you go with RW, then you don’t have to worry about getting the right model number (and build). Also, phone comes with the SIM card, so you don’t have to buy that separately. Warranty issues after the 14-day money back guarantee are serviced by the phone manufacturer. Republic will still help you with that process, if needed.
