Hi @evelynd ,
Welcome to the Republic Wireless community where users can help each other out.
On my old phone, it shows “verify” then Republic agreement will show up and I can click "agree."
Based on what you have explained, it seems like you may be using a wifi network with a portal that you have to agree to terms before it lets you though.
Previous versions of the Republic app on older phones had the ability to help detect these portals and help you though it. Newer versions of the phone normally can detect the portals by itself and will normally open a prompt.
When you swipe down from the top and look at your notifications, do you see anything related about connecting online?
Otherwise, you may want to try opening the Chrome app to view a webpage. My suggestion is to visit a non secure website such as bbc.com. This will allow the phone to send out a request to connect and if there is a portal in the way, it will redirect you to the terms so you can click agree.
Side note, these terms are normally part of the wifi you use and not from Republic Wireless.
