Hi! Republic wireless user here, I have 3 lines...

Yes, you MUST use their phones. For a data-heavy user (3GB+), it might not be the best plan. You would pay the base price ($10 for unlimited talk and text), then $7.50 per 500MB for a total of $10 base + $45 for 3GB of data. However you only pay for what you use, so you would get a refund for any data not used out of the 3GB. I can't understand how someone could use 3GB of mobile data a month but I know it happens.

You must buy a RW-specific phone. They use a custom ROM that handles the WiFi/cellular hand-off. Swappa does have used RW phones though - https://swappa.com/search?q=Republic+Wireless
