Hello everyone, I just switched to Republic Wireless last week. I am a proud owner of the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition 2015 (Amazing Phone!!!) I quickly discovered the “anywhere” messaging app doesn’t work well. So I am using Facebook Messenger for SMS/MMS and I must say it works flawless. BUT the Republic app gives me a nag screen saying “Change Messaging App” and wants me to download “anywhere”. Here is my workaround that keeps that nag screen away:
- Root your phone.
- From Google Play Store, install the app “NotificationsOff”
- After install, grant the app SuperUser access, then find the “Republic” app on the list, and deselect it.
- Go into Settings->Apps->Republic Wireless and find the Notifications section, select “Block All” and “Do not show notifications at all”
Hope this helps. I seem to get the nag screen on occasion, I wish Republic would add a disable notifications inside their app. Make things a bit easier.
