First time poster, longtime forum stalker:
I’m considering upgrading my phone (Moto G1), but wanted some additional info on newer phones that use Republic Wireless: Is there any finer granularity of control for wi-fi networks? For instance, settings that can control if calls are ‘allowed’ to route over a network or, more specifically, not be allowed to go over wi-fi, while still being able to use that network for data usage?
Hopefully that question is clear enough, but my reason for asking is that my phone always tries (and is successful) to connect to open wi-fi networks (particularly Xfinity wi-fi open networks - and I’m in a city, so this and others are literally everywhere). The problem is that if I’m moving, or the connection isn’t great, any calls that come though to me will inevitably get dropped, or I/my caller won’t be able to hear each other. This seems to happen for every phone call I receive, and thus my use of Republic is not reliable as a phone service.
I get that I can disable certain wi-fi networks completely, but it’s nice to be able to connect to them if I’m out and need to use the wi-fi for data (I’m on a no-data plan).
Thanks in advance for any help!
