Hey All, for the past few weeks I’ve noticed my phone has been suffering from sporadic issues such as: Text Messages Not Sending (despite using Republic Wireless Approved Text Applications), My Phone Number Being A Different Number (as reported by friends and family) Although Republic Resolved It, and Reoccurring Disconnects From My Wi-Fi Every 2 Minutes (as shown in the attachments),
That being said, Republic Wireless doesn’t really know what the issue is; as this has been happening for nearly 3 weeks now. The Support Reps say it is “due to an ongoing bug” that the engineer team is aware of. However, as someone who works in tech I decided to do a deep dive on the issue by researching online if others were suffering from this issue. Shockingly! Several people are suffering from this issue stemming all the way from 2018.
Now! After doing some additional probing on Republic Wireless’s website that involves their System Update Patch Releases for Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+/S10e? I noticed they are not supporting any Baseband Versions or Build Numbers like my own: My Baseband Version (G975U1UE6GUJ3) and my Build Number (RP1A.200720.012.G975U1UEU6GUJ3). Although, they are supporting the phone model being (SM-G975U1). In conclusion, if Republic isn’t providing and/or supporting patch releases to address bugs and/or other issues against my Build Number or Baseband Version, then is it possible this is the reason for the ongoing disconnects?
P.S. The steps I tried were as followed:
- Restarted My Phone
- Rebooted My Router
- Range Checked My Router
- Cleared My Browser Cache
- Cleared My Network Settings
- Cleared The Application Cache
- Disabled and Reenabled Wi-Fi On The Phone
- Disabled Battery Settings Dealing With Power Saving Mode (Republic Doze Mode)
- Verified and Ensured My Phone Has The Latest Updates For Apps And OS Version (Android 11)
