If you saw our blog post about the republic store opening today for pre-orders, we wanted to make sure you had all the details. If you’re in Wave A and waiting for an upgrade or if you’re in Waves B-E and waiting to trade in your single-band for a dual-band DEFY XT, keep reading...

 

If you’re in one of these two groups, we plan to open special programs for you in early December. It’s important that you wait for this process rather than using the store to get a dual-band DEFY XT. We’ll offer priority shipping for upgrade and trade orders so that your order will be shipped out first before other new orders. So don’t go to the store or you won’t get priority shipping.

 

You can find specific instructions here about the upgrade and trade-in processes. We’ll also send further instructions via email to let you know exactly what you need to do to upgrade or trade-in once the steps are ready in early December.

 

One more time...what should you do if you want to upgrade or trade in? That’s right. Just kick back and wait. And thanks for being patient. The dual-band DEFY XT is worth the wait.

 

Welcome to the new republic.
