I myself ( RW ) and my wife ( who is on a different network ,begins with the letter C ) who both bought phones off of eBay had a great experience. Don’t be worried about open box phones, just make sure you READ the description! I have bought new and open box from eBay and had no issues. The open box were like brand new IMO , condition 9.9/10. They have to say that because it’s an open box. Just make sure if you are BYOP you get the correct model number Republic requires you to get, again READ CAREFULLY! You can buy a brand new one as well on eBay. But, with an open box you will see significant savings. Again, do your homework, read carefully, do not just go on there blindly clicking. Any questions, ask the seller. A good seller will respond back! Look at how many stars they have, that is their rating. Be cautious of one star sellers. I myself am looking into a Moto G 2021 Power. But I’m holding off to see what NEW phones RW will offer. The holidays, including 2022 are just around the corner RW. I would start to announce something and soon if I were you.
