Hot spot by T Mobile


Will republic wireless non internet phone work with a T Mobile hot spot?



Hi @ronaldc.4ie7t0!

Yes, that shouldn’t be a problem at all. It should connect just like it would connect to a Wi-Fi network. I hope that helps!




I would say ‘trust but verify’ to add to the 'should connect just fine’
When connecting the Republic Wireless WiFi to any Router, Access Point or a hot spot provided by any device their needs to be a quality WiFi signal with none of the necessary ports being blocked.

Open Access - Required Ports & Protocol taken from WiFi 1st - Maximize your WiFi/Router - Community Guide
Your Router (home, school or business) or ISP must not block outbound traffic (from your phone) destined to the following ports:

5090 UDP which is used for call set up
6000-29999 UDP which is used for voice/audio
8883 TCP MQTT which is used for Voicemail, Messaging SMS/MMS and keep-alive messages to RW servers.
NOTE: Most firewalls are stateful, meaning they allow two-way communication as long as it is initiated by a client (phone) that is inside the router’s network. This could be your home, school or office router/firewall
Republic phones will always send the initial voice/audio data packet to a destination port of 6000-29999 (regardless of who placed the call)
