Welcome to the Republic Wireless community where users help each other out. I’m finally back home on my own computer. Let me see if I can also take a stab and figure anything out. Taking it one topic at a time:
- About the app appearing on your task bar, closing the app window hides the app (still running) into the corner icons. It may go into the up arrow where icons hide. If you haven’t figured it out already, you can right click the task bar icon (when the app is open) and “Pin” it to the task bar so the icon still remains so you are use it whenever you want.
- As amitl has mentioned, if you want to start a new text message, you can click on the (+) button to start. The right side should open up the contacts where you can enter the people you want to text first. If you enter a number, you want hit “Send to (xxx) xxx-xxxx” and it will add it to the recipients. Hitting the check mark confirms and starts the new message.
-> At this point you should be able to type in the bottom of the message. (Does it still not work?)
- If you already have a conversation going, you should be able to click on the text area to type.
Just to make sure, does it not do anything when you type? It just doesn’t respond to typing but responds to other clicking?
Republic Anywhere is designed to talk to the Republic Wireless servers directly. That is why you can see messages you sent on your phone. If you want to have messages you send from the PC synced back to the phone, you will want to use the Republic Anywhere app on the phone as well.
