My numbers do not match!

So I have my normal number but when it is about text messaging I do not receive any text back because appareantly, I receive those texts in a different number. How can I hace only one number functioning?

Hi @davidr.xzw6oe,

Are you using the bundled Samsung Messages app that came with your Galaxy J3 or Republic’s supported Android Messages - Android Apps on Google Play? You need to be using the latter as Samsung’s bundled app does not work properly with Republic’s blended WiFi/cell service.

If you are using Android Messages, please try the following:

  1. Tap the Phone icon.
  2. Tap the Dialer icon.
  3. Dial ##8647##
  • For Samsung phones only, tap the Green Phone icon.
  1. The dialer will disappear. If an activation screen appears, wait for the process to finish, then tap GREAT THANKS!.
  2. The Republic Wireless notification icon may disappear briefly then reappear. If the icon does not reappear after one minute, Restart your phone.
