What phone do you have?
What plan are you on?
Does your plan include data, or just talk & text?
Data, talk, text
There was a similar question, but it seems to have been taken down, so I’m asking again.
Can I assign a new phone number to my current phone, and keep the SIM card I have or do I need to order a new SIM card?
Context if you care:
Because of all this stuff going on with Republic not approving new phones, I’m in a sticky spot. I bought 3 months worth of coverage for my daughter on another carrier that has to be activated soon. I was planning on giving her my Pixel 3a, setting her up on the other carrier and upgrading my phone to the newer 5a. I should have checked if RW had approved the 5a, but I just assumed they would. I fully acknowledge my stupidity and I’m trying to work out a solution.
My possible solution: I was thinking of switching my number to the new carrier with the new phone (which is useable there) and I thought of giving the older phone to my daughter to use on RW until all this nonsense about approved phones is sorted out. It’ll be easy for me to keep my number and switch to the new carrier. But I wonder if I can use my current Republic Wireless SIM card and assign it a new phone number. Or is it a lost cause and I need to buy a new SIM card kit?
