Switch to galaxy s7

I’m looking into buying a phone on Facebook Marketplace. The phone, Galaxy S7, has a description that reads “I am selling our Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy S7 Phones and Samsung wireless charger bases.” Is it possible for me to buy this and switch it over to Republic, and are there any questions I should ask to make sure I don’t waste my money. The phone itself is like new so no worries with any of that, just the providers.

Hi @Malachi_David98,

The short answer is the specific phone you’re looking at won’t work.

Whether acquired via Facebook Marketplace or elsewhere, please know Republic does not support for activation on its network any carrier branded phones (locked or unlocked). Republic supports only use of North American factory unlocked variants. Details here:

The required model number for Samsung’s Galaxy S7 is SM-G930U.
