I’ve been a Republic Wireless customer for about 3 years now, love the service, but recently ran into a problem I’m unsure how to fix. This is the first time since getting on the 1GB data plan where I’ve hit my limit (6 days until my billing cycle changes), but it was at a bad time while travelling for work. Now I can’t send or receive text messages (regular or MMS) and I see an exclamation by the signal level. I do notice a warning saying Cellular data limit reached, data paused for rest of cycle. When I click the warning it says Because your set data limit was reached, the device has paused data usage for the remainder of this cycle. Resuming may lead to charges from your carrier. Then there’s an option for RESUME or OK. I’ve just been hitting OK, which must be like cancel, since I don’t want to pay for more data.
Do I need to hit RESUME to allow text messages to work? If I do that, will my data still be capped at 1GB (which is what I want…I don’t want to pay for more data, but I want my text messages to work again)? I don’t know if the hard cap is enforced for me by the Republic App, the phone, the carrier, or what.
I’m headed out to see a concert tonight and meeting people, so hoping to get an answer by this evening
Thanks for your help!
