Republic app says the phone is compatible but the SW channel is listed as not


#1

I read in the forum that one way to check compatibility of a phone is to download the republic app. I downloaded the app to a phone, Moto e5 play, from consumer Cellular. The app said it is compatible. However, the SW channel is CC, which another page says is not compatible. So which is it? I’m trying to update one of my older phones and would like to just pick it up instead of waiting for delivery, not to mention save $.

It isn’t possible to use a Consumer Cellular phone with Republic. They modify the software for their service making it incompatible with Republic.

Additional info, depending on what phone you’re moving from, and how it is configured, you may need a new SIM from Republic any way.
