Yeah, mine still says disabled regardless of which way I leave the toggle, but… it’s working now so I’m not going to overthink it. Hopefully, someone with more tech expertise can tackle that puzzle.

Glad to hear my solution seems to be working for others :blush:.

And thanks to those of you who jumped in so quickly to help (SuperT, louisdi, jben, Southpaw)!



Hi @jorandyl,

I’ve now made your solution into an article in our Help Center:



What phone do you have? Samsung note 9

What plan are you on? plan 4

Does your plan include data, or just talk & text? yes

All of sudden my calls gets hung up saying
“another application using microphone” I rebooted phone … made sure that republic wireless is given microphone permission and checked that no application running using microphone and also restricted
It mostly bug in republic wireless app bug … I checked calling duo and whatsapp they work good … if some app using microphone then either of whatsapp or duo call should have failed

Issue Description



Your issue sounds similar to this thread - is your issue limited to WiFi? Does it work normally while on Cellular?



Same issue here. Can this be fixed soon?! I shouldn’t have to switch off my wifi to make a call. I would like to stay with Republic Wireless, but Google Fi is looking mighty nice right now.
