Provisioning without Cell Tower Coverage

Can I provision a new phone at home if there is no cell tower reception? I have great wifi at home, but want a cell phone when I’m out and about.


Hi @mistermike

You can activate a phone in an area with only WiFi coverage. I live in an area with poor/no cell coverage too and I have activated Republic Wireless phones as often as needed with no problem.

I have poor coverage at home which causes the cell modem to eat up the battery. I put the phone in airplane mode with Wi-Fi on when I am home and take it out of airplane mode when I climb in the car or head out for a walk.
