Simple answer: No.

Only the factory unlocked version of the (J320A) J3, with the builds listed in the link above work with Republic. Yours is a S320V and can not be made to work with Republic.

Thank you.

Will the Samsung Galaxy J3 Sky SM-S320VL (for Tracfone) work on Republic Wireless?

If you go to our BYOP site it will walk you through how to check it even has a drop-down letting you know how to tell on a j3.

You can check compatibility without installing the app by looking up your phone’s model number…

To find your phone’s model and build number, go to:
Apps -> Settings -> About Device
Look for Model number and Build number in the list.
Compatible model number: SM-J320A
Compatible build numbers: MMB29K.J320AUEU2AQB1, MMB29K.J320AUES2APJ2, MMB29K.J320AUEU1APE9
Must be North America Unlocked version.
*Samsung Galaxy J3 users may have an old build number on their phone and need to update to the build listed above. Please also note that the AT&T branded version of this phone is not compatible with our service.

Since the model is the SM-S320VL and not the SM-J320A it will not work.

Thank you!
