Google Pixel 5 is now supported for BYOP

The Google Pixel 5 is now supported for BYOP. :tada:

This means that although we do not offer this phone in our online store, it can be brought to our service with the purchase of a Republic Wireless BYOP SIM card.

Please note that our BYOP SIM card offers coverage with only our GSM carrier-partner. If you’re not sure about coverage in your area, please ask in our Community and we’ll be glad to help.

We support only the North American Factory Unlocked version of any BYOP phone. We are not able to support carrier-specific models. Please make certain any phone you are considering for BYOP is supported by installing the Republic Wireless app to check for compatibility, or consulting our Community guidance at How to Find a Compatible Unlocked Phone .


Will the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G be supporting 5G connectivity? Or is this still in the realm of “if it works it works”.

Republic does not currently provide 5G service so while the phones are capable, the service isn’t currently provided. I have two 5G phones in my family, one on AT&T and one on T-Mobile and I’ll say as of right now, the experience is quite underwhelming.
