Hi @phillipv ,
When you activate the phone, if you follow the steps in the document @drm186 provided, you will sign into the Republic app using the same Republic Wireless account credentials you used for the existing phone. As you continue through the activation process, the app will ask you whether you want to activate the phone as a new line of service, or to replace a current phone. You’ll select the current phone whose number you want to move to the new phone, and the app will activate the phone with that number, deactivating the old phone.
If something in the process should go awry and you end up with a new number, just let our Support team know and they can straighten things out for you.
