What phone do you have?
G Fast (2021)
What plan are you on?
Does your plan include data, or just talk & text?
So, after much troubleshooting, experimenting, and testing, I’m pretty sure that these two things are connected.
This has been happening on two different phones (moto X3 play, moto G Fast), over multiple networks. When on wifi network in an area with no/very limited cell signal, Republic will sometimes switch calls to be over cell (data and messaging will properly route over wifi). This can last from seconds to hours. Resetting the app, phone, connections does not seem to help, or at least will fix it for a moment until to happens again. When this occurs mid call, it sends the caller to voicemail. I thought it was a wifi issue at my old house, as the internet connection and wifi were both weaker, but after testing on multiple networks, I’m 100% confident that it’s triggered by having no/very limited cell. This is a huge problem as my new place has that situation. To clarify, I have strong wifi and internet here. I’ve tried doing manual handover, but that doesn’t help for receiving calls, nor for making them (as you can’t do handover until the call starts), and it still drops them to VM mid call. Not sure where to go from here.
