Switching sim card from moto g4 to moto X (4th generation)

I have a moto G4 with a broken side button. So now I have a unlocked moto X (4th generation) and was wondering what the process is to switch the sim card and keep my number? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hi Wes, welcome to the community! Is the G4 still functioning? If so, open the Republic App, click the gear at the top, then about. What does it say there for “SIM Type”?


it says, sim type:GSM

Great, you can just move the SIM card from the G4 to the X4. The SIM in the G4 is going to look too big. You can simply press on the center of the SIM and it should pop-out to the smaller side. On the X4, after you’ve installed the SIM, you’ll want to install the Republic App and open it up and it will finish up the activation for you.


Awesome! Thank you for your help!
