How to Find a Compatible Unlocked Phone

Ya I don’t think it will work. I asked on another form for a user that bought one to check the channel and he replied "it says “att.” "

Yup, that won’t work. The required software channel for Motos is retus (U.S. retail), amz (Amazon), or fi (Google Fi).

Ok found another & sprint is one of their partners. I cant find a model number though.

The Fi version of the phone will work with Republic but requires activation on Fi to get that price. Because of that and because they’re a competitor it is generally frowned upon to link to from here.

Link removed.Thank you

Oh 1 more question. When the wife opens this can I just put her sim in it and she will be good to go or do I have to order a new one?

What model phone is she on now? You need to figure out what type of SIM she has: Can I Use My Old SIM Card in My New Phone? – Republic Help

It is a E4. I looked at the link but don’t see hers listed

Look at the SIM, if the word Republic is all gray/black it can’t be moved. If the “public” part is green, it can.

Ok thanks, I’ll have to wait till the Wife is not looking since this is a Christmas present.

If her phone is still working you could also check via the Republic App by opening the App, clicking the little gear at the top and then About. You’ll be looking to see if it says “GSM” under SIM Type which is what would indicate the SIM can be moved to the new phone.

You are awesome. Too bad I cant tell through my account online, Then I wouldn’t have to try to be a Nija. LOL

But I can, :smiling_imp: with your permission. Let me know if you’d like me to save you the trouble.

Her SIM card can be moved to the new phone. Please reboot both phones after moving the SIM card.

Does Mrs. @eekzues need a Republic Wireless T-shirt to make the Christmas present really special?

On the Pixel 3a you list compatible models GA00655-US, GA00656-SU, or GA00657-US.
Is that middle one supposed to be “-US”?

Yes, it should be. Thank you for catching the typo.

Looks like the Moto G Power SKU PAH30004US is the compatible model XT2041-4 . Additionally, looks like the SKU for the compatible Moto G stylus (XT2043-4) is PAH10005US . That would mean the Best Buy and B&H phones with those SKUs are compatible.

This should be VERY useful, thanks! One suggestion:

Change the “Moto Power & Moto Stylus” header to say “Moto G Power & Moto G Stylus” to match the names used by RW; as it is now, someone searching for either one might completely miss it here.
