Hi! I’ve read through the info about using my Republic Wireless phone (Moto G Base Plan +.5GB data) but I am still confused about how to handle things on an upcoming trip to Canada.
Is the following all true?
I can make calls and texts to US/Canada IF I’m connected to Wifi.
Can I receive calls and texts from US/Canada at any time or only if I’m connected to wifi?
I can do the data stuff on my phone if I’m connected to wifi.
I should put my phone in airplane mode but enable wifi?
Then things got really confusing when I read the info at this post about temporarily switching to the $5 wifi only plan so I don’t lose any text messages that people in the US send me. I’m confused if I should do this, and when do I do it? If I have base plan and I have to switch at my next billing cycle, it’ll be quite an inconvenience until my trip to Canada. Maybe I just don’t care about missing a few text messages over my long weekend? Is that the only thing that happens if I stay on the base plan?
Mostly I just want to be able to communicate with my Airbnb host, via phone text or the Airbnb app whatever way will actually work. Thanks for the info!
