    While the specs show this phone can be used on Republic Wireless, as of this date 8/19/2015 it cannot be used. RW has not released any information on when or if the Moto G (3rd Gen) will be available for their system.

    Too bad as this phone is perfect for my needs and price point. As RW requires special firmware this may just be a wait until they test it time and hopefully it will be available very soon.
