Replace my broken phone

The Power button broke on my Moto G5 Plus phone , I ordered SAMSUNG Galaxy A10 from Amazon $45 less than RW, when I receive it tomorrow , how do I activate it and start using ? can I move the SIM card from the old phone to it ?

  1. Assuming you purchased a Republic Wireless compatible A10e (which seems doubtful, since the compatible A10e I find on Amazon is $0.99 more than Republic Wireless), determine whether you need to purchase a new SIM card:
  1. Once you have an appropriate SIM card installed in the new phone, see:

When a phone seems to be cheaper than it should be, there is usually a good reason. In this case it is because that version of the phone was never meant to be sold in the US and doesn’t come with a US warranty.
