I will be canceling my service with republic shortly and would like to give my phone to my mother. She has republic service already. Can you tell us what she needs to do to upgrade her phone (mine) to her present cell number?
Can you tell us which model your phone is that you want to give your Mother. There may be some steps you should take first such as factory resetting the phone, and you may need to order a new SIM card.
As for transferring her phone number to your phone, that is done during the activation now. After she goes through the google activation, she will begin the Republic activation. She will be asked to sign in to her Republic account. Then she can choose Replace an existing line. This will cause her phone number to transfer over.
look at this similar thread from earlier today for useful info
