I’m surprised to learn that my republic wireless sim will not work in any dual sim phones. I recently decided I wanted a dual sim phone to use on vacation trips to Europe with a local sim also with the phone. I bought a “Moto G7 power” phone with dual sims because I liked my wife’s new Moto G7 power. I want to use the cell phone in Europe for GPS mapping use when driving. I don’t want to carry a Garmin, when I can use my phone that is one less thing to carry. I no longer carry a camera for the same reason.
I have used my RW phone many times while in Europe using local wireless networks with great success to call and text home.
When my new phone arrived I installed the RW sim and booted up the phone to a message saying that RW sims are not supported in dual sim phones. I tested both a T-Mobile sim and an ATT sim at local stores, and found they work fine. I decided to take the risk of buying a Walmart Family Mobile sim to see if that works. It was difficult to setup the data but it works.
I’m really disappointed that I can’t continue using RW with this dual sim phone and I still feel that RW is the correct service for me and my family, but I want to carry only one device.
