I have been on Republic since the beta program using my Motorola Defy XT and always have the same problems. This year I purchased the Galaxy S7 for my mom and she has the same trouble I have ! You can NOT trust Republic for Solid Phone Service ! on WIFI I visited her to check her phone…So I made a WIFI call from my phone to hers and it FAILED !! And I tried hers to call me and it FAILED After 3 reboots of her phone I finally got it to work. So for emergency have another prepaid cell phone !
The only reason I put up with them is the price I know longer recommend them to the elderly !!!
