I’ve seen this mentioned before, but I noticed there hasn’t been an official feature request yet, so here I am.
I realize that dual-sim usage at Republic ranges from “unsupported” to “Terms of Service Violation”, but hear me out.
My wife and I travel out of the country a lot for work, as I’m sure many do. Our baggage is pretty minimal at one bag each, plus pockets and wallets.
Our old, trusty pair of motos are awesome, and we play the sim swap game a lot, but it’s always worth it, right down to when we have to store our RW Sims. You guys know the deal: SIM cards are tiny. The usual place that they go is the nearest pouch, pocket, wallet, or bag. This is fine; that’s the price we pay to take republic with us, and we love having it overseas, if for no other reason than wifi calling.
What’s unfortunate (and the reason for this request) is when an emergency comes up back home, and we need to call home to sort it out, we always go through panic of figuring out which crevasse of baggage they’ve ended up in. It turns out that even with only two bags, that’s still more than enough real estate for two tiny sim cards to get misplaced, especially so when we’re in a place where we can’t turn out all our baggage to search for them
If Republic Wireless offered support for dual SIM card usage, and/or sold a supported dual SIM phone in the store, I can assure you that my wife and I would be the first ones to purchase this feature, just to have the ability to keep our phones, numbers, and communication unified, and ready for the global front that we find ourselves in on a frequent basis.
Once again, I realize that this may not be “just around the corner” for republic, and our current method of sim swapping still works just fine, so please only view this is a feature request, nothing more.
We absolutely love republic back home, and we love being able to take it with us. We just wish there were an easier way to do that.
Thanks for listening!
