Japan Travel no local phone service



Just got back from Japan, could not call a local number, only US phone numbers, is there something I should have done, I also rented a WiFi Hot spot ?


Hi @timb.p1x0bd,

Your experience is to be expected. Republic’s service is limited to calling U.S. and Canadian phone numbers. It doesn’t matter that you’re trying to call numbers in the country you’re visiting or that you’re using WiFi.

I’m sorry to say that Republic does not offer international calling. Here’s Republic’s official word on the matter: International Service – Republic Help. For next time, you might find this helpful: International Travel with a Republic Phone.
