Will purchasing a phone for another RW member while signed into my own personal account mess anything up?


my SO and i are both on republic wireless. she has an old phone that really needs an upgrade. i plan on purchasing a “newer” phone on her behalf. when purchasing the phone, is using my login information going to mess things up? can i buy it under my membership, then she can activate it using her info?



Yes, that will be fine. When she activates the new phone she will use her gmail account, your common RW account, and choose the option to replace her present phone. Her number will transfer to the new phone and the old phone will be deactivated.



Please ensure the 3.0 plans will work for her. Currently all 3.0 phones are sold as being on the GSM network. Coverage will vary from her older CDMA phone.
