Carrier Identification

I have a service provider who needs to know the carrier for my cell phone in order to send me messages. Republic Wireless is not on the list, of course. I have tried selecting both Sprint and T-Mobile, but neither works to allow a message to be sent to my phone. I have a CDMA sim. This is a medical service, and I would sure like it to work. Help.


Hi Jim and welcome to the Community!

Though Republic’s cellular coverage is provided through network partnerships with T-Mobile or Sprint (Republic CDMA SIMs use Sprint’s legacy network); Republic operates its own network for text messaging. You would need to ask the medical service provider to add Republic Wireless as an option.

If that’s not practical, do you know if they would send an email? If so, Republic’s email to SMS gateway might be an option:
