wow. lesson learned. i was thinking about switching to sprint but never activated their phone and decided to upgrade my service with republic wireless instead. just the inquiry even without activated had my number already ported to sprint, hence my republic wireless service getting automatically cancelled! thank you so much for resolving this issue and i shall never leave republic wireless!!!


Thanks for the follow-up @susanb.sah3pb.
