While the Ascend 5w is out of stock, there is other great deals that can be had on phones outside of Republic that will work on their network. For those that missed out, you might want to consider looking elsewhere.
Best Buy Galaxy J3 for $129
B&H Photo Moto G4 Play for $99
You would need the BYOP SIM card to take advantage of these deals. . The Bring Your Own Phone SIMs are available at the links below.
If you have Amazon Prime, I would recommend you take advantage of that to get free two day shipping.
Anyone else want to add an deals on phones that are compatible with Republic? I will edit the main post to add a link to it.
