Trying to sign up with GroupMe and getting errors confirming phone number. Contacted support and they say
We received your response.
Upon checking, Republic Wireless is a VOIP number, therefore you cannot use it to create a Groupme account since we no longer support it.
We suggest that you use a real mobile number that is acquired from a local telco provider.
Thank you your understanding and cooperation.
So, we don’t have “real” mobile numbers? Is there a phone setting I can change to get GroupMe to work? Anyone know why Microsoft wouldn’t “support” an RW phone number? Does it require special technology?
