This document is intended to prepare you for canceling a service line or account with Republic Wireless. We'll discuss what you need to do before you cancel and provide a step-by-step tutorial for how to cancel service from your My Account portal.
Before You Cancel
Are you keeping your phone number?
Once your number has been transferred to your new provider, you'll receive an email confirmation. Service with Republic for that phone line will automatically be canceled when your transfer is complete—no need to come back and cancel.
Have you reviewed our policies?
Please review the following documents before canceling:
Are you eligible for a refund?
- If you're within our Money Back Guarantee
Your first monthly plan charge will be refunded.
- If you're outside ourMoney Back Guarantee
You'll receive a prorated refund of your monthly plan charge for the remaining days up to your bill cycle date. If you're on our Republic Wireless Plans 2.0: Republic Refund, you'll also be refunded for any unused purchased cell data.
Are you sure you're ready to cancel?
Once your line of service has been canceled, your phone number and any service-plan discounts associated with that line will be lost. If you'd like to keep your phone number, you can transfer it to another provider before canceling with Republic. If you want to cancel more than one phone line, each line must be canceled individually.
After you've cancelled the last line of service, your Republic Wireless account will also be closed. You'll still have access to My Account for 30 days after you complete the cancellation process for your last line of service. However, you will not have access to your call detail records (CDRs).
Note: If you want to return any accessories still under the Money Back Guarantee when you cancel your Republic service, a separate accessories return request must be submitted. Please see our Return and Replacement Policy for more info.
Are you canceling for someone else?
If you're canceling Republic service for a deceased Republic member, the executor will need to send an email to email@example.com with the member's name, phone number (if you have it), and a copy of the member's legal death certificate.
Member accounts and service cannot be canceled by non-account holders for any other reason. If you have questions, please contact Republic Help.
