Transferring old number


Before I can transfer my old number (Verizon) to Republic, am I supposed to go ahead and activate the line? (Pay for service) Or is there a step I am missing?

It does not make it clear if you are supposed to activate the service…the activation says “new number” and I don’t want to go ahead and find that I was not supposed to.

The FAQ do not make it clear…can someone help?



That’s correct. You need to activate the service, with a new Republic number. Only once the line is active, will you then see the option to transfer a number in your online account.


Thank you!

So, I activate the phone using “new number” option, then request a line change?

Correct. Directions here:


Thanks - I got to the very end, but became confused with the account number. It was a Verizon prepaid, and I sent the wrong account number. Republic kicked it back, but I don’t seem to be ab;e to change the account information in the request - it still shows the incorrect account number after I submit.

Is there a trick I am missing?

Thanks for all the help. :slight_smile:
