My child is about to start college at Campbell Univ, at Buies Creek NC this fall.
When we attended for a campus visit, our Republic phones were useless for anything except calls and texts. We were apparently almost always roaming while mid-campus. The batteries all died quickly, literally within a matter of hours.
We are on the legacy plan with the 5Gb using Sprints network with Verizon as a backup. What I want to know is actual experiences from existing Republic customers if there are any…
- When my child does have access as a student to the campus WiFi, will the phone do well with calling/data browsing, etc. Without fast battery drain?
2.Does the “new” Republic network coverage work any better than the legacy Sprint coverage on the Bouis Creek campus?
We started Republic years ago because our child wanted a Smart Phone, and it met our budget. I would hate to have to leave to get better coverage, but they need to have a phone that will work for Campbell. If we need to buy a new phone that’s fine, but we need to know it will work for that situation.
