Is my unlocked Samsung galaxy s21 5g compatible with Republic?

I have this unlocked phone. Can I use it with Republic wireless, or do you have to purchase this phone through Republic to get it to work with Republic Wireless?

Thank you,

As long as it is the US Factory Unlocked version, meaning when you go to Settings – About Phone – Model you see SM-G991U1, then it will work with Republic.

Thank you for your response. I appreciate it.

does this mean that the SM-G991UZAAXAA does not work with Republic?

Hi @rlaakso,

I think if you follow these steps on that phone, you’ll be able to confirm the model number is SM-G991U1:

  1. On the home screen, swipe up from the bottom row of icons
  2. Tap Settings
  3. Tap About Phone
  4. Under Model number, look for this number: SM-G991U1.

The longer number you have provided is listed on our BYOP page at as compatible.

Thank you very much!
