Hello all, I have been a Republic Wireless customer since December 2013 and I went with the Moto X 1st Gen and now it is time for a phone upgrade. I suppose every 5 years is patiently reluctantly at best right? Before I dive into getting a new phone I almost wanted to reassess RW as a whole because of a couple problems I have been seeing.
Phone- I know this phone is old but will upgrading eliminating this dang optimizing every single power on or restart? It goes up to 102 optimizations that take at least 30-45minutes. I find this highly annoying and now with the decreased battery life if I forget to charge the cell during the day I am forced to deal with this.
Phone or RW- Sometimes the phone rings in a call but I am stuck at the phone answer/do not answer display screen. I am forced to swipe not answer and hang up the call. I had to do this a few times in the last week and I’m not sure what it is if its the wifi handoff or the phone isn’t fast enough to keep up with the software of RW.
So I am debating whether or not to stick with RW or go with another cell provider. Especially when most times I cannot even verify my cell number on the internet with companies that need it even with the popular area code 786.
Any phone suggestions or should i switch out to TMobile?
