Republic number rejected for online SMS security verification


I am unable to use online services (like the IRS) which perform security verification via text message. These services claim my Republic number does not exist or cannot receive SMS. I have had this problem with the IRS and with a local government emergency service alert system.

I send and receive SMS and MMS with no problem all day long from anyone who I want to communicate with, but again some entities outright reject the Republic number.

My phone is a Nexus 6P running Android 8.1.0. My Republic plan is ‘My Choice + 1 GB’.


this keeps popping up.
