This doesn’t belong in this thread, so I’ll be brief. I suspect a misunderstanding.
“I assume you moved an already activated SIM. It may stop working at any time. I would bet that it will.”
“but the dual SIM version is a gray market phone in the US and not sold here by Motorola. It is not on the US software build. This is why it is incompatible.”
Incorrect. It is, as stated, the exact same model. Republic supports it. It is the BYOP phone. It is on the US software build, it is a US unlocked phone. They do NOT support dual SIM.
“Finally, using an unauthorized phone is a violation of the TOS. Should your phone end up doing things it shouldn’t (such as use the underlying carrier infrastructure)”
It’s the authorized BYOP model.
My question wasn’t how do I break things, my question was how to use local texting after inserting a non-Republic SIM card if I use Anywhere for messaging, relevant to the topic. If it was possible to do so without uninstalling critical Republic service component apps, which in turn might make it possible to switch back and forth (i.e. by switching SIM cards). The dual SIM phone is just a bonus (and an eye to the future).
