Issues on a Samsung S6


Mine does the same thing too!

I have a Samsung S6. In February, I had to send my phone back to Samsung THREE TIMES to get it to work…Republic did nothing. Said it was a manufacturing problem. Samsung said it was a provider problem…it finally worked, up until now. Now, it doesn’t send or receive texts all the time, just some of the time, and it doesn’t tell you which got through or not! That’s a fun game.

I’ve looked into transferred service providers, but NONE of the other big guys are compatible with this Republic Wireless phone. I guess you get what you pay for, and this cheap service provider is pretty worthless. I’m seriously doubting everyone else on these boards saying they LOVE their Republic Wireless phone…are they even real people?



I assure you I’m quite real and I’m a satisfied Republic customer. I’m sorry you’re not sharing that experience. Presuming the Samsung Galaxy S6 you reference was purchased from Republic, it’s perfectly compatible with either AT&T’s or T-Mobile’s networks in the U.S. Either of those big guys or smaller providers using one of their networks shouldn’t have any issue activating it, however, that’s up to them.

If you’d like the Community’s help with troubleshooting, I respectfully suggest starting a separate thread with as much detail as you’re able to provide. Similar symptoms don’t necessarily mean the same issue.
