Walmart black friday sales - would these StraightTalk phones work for Republic?

walmart has black friday sales coming up on the moto e and galaxy a21 among others. the ad says it is for straight talk but couldn’t these phones also be used with republic wireless?

Hi @jeffreys.xr7zfc,

I’m afraid not. Phones branded for Straight Talk or any other service provider (locked or unlocked) would not work with Republic.

Republic’s unique (sufficiently unique to be patented) blended WiFi/cell service requires one of the carrier agnostic factory unlocked phones listed here: Republic Wireless Phones – Republic Help. You’ll want to be certain the phone you wish to bring is an exact model number (and in some cases build number match) for those listed.

I also suggest watching this thread for potential deals on phones that would be Republic compatible:
