20 DOLLAR PLAN
I was out for the fourth of July and somebody that was with me but not right by me tried to call me but my phone didn’t ring (they were able to text me somehow though) but get this the minute I got home hours later when I walked in my front door and my phone connected to my Asus wifi router the notification for the phone calls came through.
I don’t get out a whole lot otherwise I assume this would be happening more often (although it has happened when I went to the grocery store too).
So why am I paying for service if it ONLY works when I’m 10 feet from my wifi router? I’m paying for the tower service! And I already pay separate for my wifi service so why am I even paying for RW if it doesn’t work?
Is there a setting (such as wifi preference under wifi calling) or ANY other setting that may help? Although from what I understand wifi preference is for when you are connected to both wifi and the towers so it shouldn’t matter.
I had it set to prefer wifi since I’m home more than I’m not.
Btw I’ve had both a CDMA and now a GSM sim card. The CDMA service was UNusable it was SO awful even though RW told me it would be best in my area and I also had CDMA virgin mobile for years without one issue.
The RW GSM sim seems to work better than the CDMA RW service did but still not great.
Is it just that RW is unreliable? I don’t get why when they are simply using the big networks towers. Could it be the way they implement their service with the app etc?
