I have a Motorola g 1st. gen. with republic wireless service, I bought a new phone that qualifies to install a sim card from Republic wireless, my question is, do I have to buy the sim kit for my new phone?
if buying from Republic no SIM kit is needed, as the SIM comes with the new phone.
There is no SIM with the 1st Gen Moto G, and even if there was, the legacy phones being CDMA do not use SIMs to link your number to the network. (This is done on the phones via MEID. All SIMs do is allow access to the CDMA partners LTE network on an active phone.)
SIM Kits can be found on both Republic store page and Amazon
