Hi. I recently dropped my phone and broke the screen. The other day it shut down and kept trying to re-activate. It seems to be working now but I think I need a new phone. What is the correct method to purchase a new phone and keep the existing plan?
This is pretty straight-forward. Just purchase the new phone. When it arrives and you activate it an option to move your number from your present phone will appear. Take that option. The number will move and the broken phone will be deactivated.
New phones need 3.0 plans
1.0/2.0 plans do not carry over to the new phones if you want to keep a 1.0/2.0 plan you need to find a used legacy phone [Moto X 1.2, G 1/3, E 1/2] Buying and Selling Used Republic Wireless Phones
