I got a new Moto G4 phone today with the Republic Wireless sim card (phone + sim bought from the Republic website). On starting up the phone the pre-installed Republic app asked to be updated before I could activate. This brings up the Google Play store on the Republic Wireless app page. However instead of having the option to download/update the app, it instead says that “This item isn’t available in your country”.
I’m in the USA - obviously, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to get the phone + SIM as you need to enter in a USA address for the delivery and banking details etc. I suspect the problem lies with the Google account, as I only recently emigrated to the USA so it probably still has my previous country details. I tried updating the Google play account address so it is my new US address, but that doesn’t seem to have worked.
