New phone?

I ordered a new phone (moto 4 g). I received a moto play. Can you tell me what the difference in these phones is besides the price? I also need to know do I send this back to receive the correct phone or keep it and be credited the difference?

I lost my last phone so will need that account closed and this one opened. I’d like to keep my old number. How can I do that?

Motorola has a decent web site for comparing the models.

Generally, the Play is a little ‘lower-end’ phone. I’d definitely open a Ticket with Republic for this one.

As for your account, you do not need to close the old one. Just activate the new phone on your existing account. It should be pretty easy and seamless.

This will also automatically deactivate your lost phone.
