Or does the phone need some ongoing interaction with Republic wireless in order to keep working?
for example, I have a Motorola Moto X gen 1 phone which is aging out of the Republic wireless system and would like retire it from phone duty to run the Sygic dashcam/satnav app. Shoudl I root the phone or just use it as is? AFAIK, the wifi functionality of the phone will still work even after I remove the phone from my plan w Republic Wireless. I should still be able to use it as a mini tablet in a WiFi hotspot, right ?
I keep running across Android terms and concepts and jargon that are opaque to me. is there one simple central resource for understanding how the Android app /OS ecosystem works -
