My mother in-law lives in another state and has a phone that’s on my account. It’s a legacy RW Moto X 1st Gen phone that’s on the legacy Republic Wireless 1.0 plan. Her old legacy phone has died and it’s time to order a new one and upgrade her to the Republic Wireless 3.0 “My Choice” plan.
My sister in-law wants to purchase the new phone for my mother in-law to continue using on my RW account as an upgrade to her existing phone.
So here’s my questions:
(1) If my sister in-law orders a new phone from Republic Wireless using HER account, would I then have to order a SIM card in order to activate the phone on MY account?
(2) If the answer to question (1) is yes, then can we order the phone through my RW account and use my sister in-law’s credit card for that purchase without removing my credit card from the account for the recurring monthly use charges?
(3) Our goal is for my sister in-law to pay for the phone, but for me to continue paying for the service. What’s the best/easiest way to accomplish that?
Thanks in advance for your helpful advice.
