Locked or Unlocked Phone?

I have a Moto E; a locked non sim card used only on Republic Network. Are the current phones sold by Republic that way,

or do they come with a removable sim card , if i.e. i sell the phone in 3 years and another person can use the phone on another network.Another option- I can buy a phone listed on Republic’s web site and add a Republic sim card.

Here is your answer (RW Documentation) Are Republic Wireless Phones Locked or Unlocked?

Hi @arnolds.31me7v!

The new 3.0 phones (the owns that Republic currently sells in their shop) are factory unlocked and, if you choose to switch to another carrier (which we hope you don’t ), it will work on other carriers. They do use Republic SIM cards. You can buy a used phone from a third-party and bring it but make sure it is the correct model prior to purchasing. You can check here: Bring your own phone to Republic! | Republic Wireless. Hope that helps!
