Will a Canadian phone work?


Hey there!
I am currently living in Canada and am looking to buy an unlocked Galaxy S7 to use with Republic Wireless when I move to Texas. I’m looking at the model number that Republic sells and it’s different from the common model number our Canadian phones are. My question is if I buy a Canadian, unlocked galaxy S7, would it work with Republic Wireless?
I have tried looking around on web sites and have been getting very conflicting answers.

Canadian Galaxy S7 model number:

Thanks for the help.


the W8 model is made for the Canadian carriers while the U version is the US Factory Unlocked
Republics app does run a model number and build version Check and will not allow other models to activate so the Canadian model W8 will not work


Thanks for the reply. I appreciate it.


your welcome
