Samsung SM-J737U Republic Wireless Phones unlocked

I gave my old decommissioned Republic Wireless phone to my son.
He is not a RW member.
He put his SIM card in and gets error message “Cannot be used for voice”
Is it possible for RW to unlock the phone ??

Republic Wireless has never sold or supported ‘locked’ phones … see Does Republic Wireless Sell Unlocked Phones? – Republic Help for the answer directly from them

Hi @noelh,

What type of SIM and where did it come from? “His” SIM would not work if from another provider.

Please supply more info.


That’s simply not true. It is an unlocked phone that is GSM only and will work with any GSM carrier SIM for service on that carrier.
