I am wondering when the Galaxy S21 will be back in stock on the Republic store - Any info on this would be appreciated.
Hi @brentonc and welcome to the Community!
At this time, Republic has no date regarding when Samsung’s Galaxy S21 might be restocked. As you may be aware, there is an ongoing worldwide shortage of computer chips. Smartphones are small computers and that shortage is making it difficult for Republic to keep certain models in stock.
If you’d like assistance with sourcing a Republic compatible Galaxy S21 elsewhere, please let us know.
Thank you. Helpful as you can be given the situation…
For what it’s worth, Best Buy has multiple Republic compatible Galaxy S21 series phones linked here: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/searchpage.jsp?st=galaxy+s21&_dyncharset=UTF-8&_dynSessConf=&id=pcat17071&type=page&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=&sp=&qp=category_facet%3DSAAS~All+Unlocked+Cell+Phones~pcmcat311200050005&list=n&af=true&iht=y&usc=All+Categories&ks=960&keys=keys.
You might need a new SIM to pair with it. For more on that, as a starting point, we would need to know the brand, model and generation of the phone you currently use with Republic.
I have a Motorola G7 with a GSM SIM card.
Thank you for your help!
GSM makes it easy! You may move service (number and plan) to a new Galaxy S21 or other Republic compatible phone by moving the SIM.
Once past initial setup on the new phone (follow on screen prompts for that, move the SIM. Next, be certain Republic’s mobile app is installed and/or updated on the new phone. Finally, opening Republic’s app will present a brief activation sequence moving service (number and plan) from old to new phone.
Cool, thanks for the info.
