Need help restarting sevice


#1

I canceled my granddaughter’s phone activation. Now we want to reactivate it. Need best how to directions.I have read some on here but not sure that they fit this situation.


#2

how long ago did you cancel the activation (and which phone) ?


#3

The phone is a samsung galaxy j3 . Canceled service about 6 to 8 months ago.

As the SIM has been deactivated for longer that 20 days you will need a new BYOD SIM Bring your own phone to Republic! | Republic Wireless

once you get that SIM you can install it and go though the activation though the Republic app on the Phone

Thanks for your help. I was surprised to hear that I needed new sim card. Would it be better to just buy a new phone for her?


#6

I would not think a new phone is needed (the cheapest phone is currently $99 where the SIM is only $5 + shipping (as low as $4 for a total of $9)

SIM cards once activated and deactivated expire after 20 days.

Well yes the new sim would be a better deal. Thanks
