Enough is enough! I’m sick of the fact that text messages aren’t being reliably sent and received, or sent and received too late, or they get duplicated at the receiver’s end! I’ve missed many important text messages and some of my important text messages have arrived late. I have no reliable way of knowing that a text message I send will get to its destination, nor that I might have missed a text message that was sent to me. There is no pattern to it – it happens randomly and both on WiFi and Cellular networks. I have 4 users on my account all of whom report the same issue. This ongoing Republic Wireless issue has caused me a great deal of headache and problems at work! Due to the nature of my job, I am subscribed to various notifications and I have missed many of them!!! I had to switch to using Google Voice for text messages in order to ensure reliability.
I have tried the solution here many times: Error "Not Sent. Tap to Try Again." When Sending Texts – Republic Help However, it is only a temporary fix! The issue eventually comes back.
I have been a Republic Wireless user for 6 years, since version 1.0, which did not have this issue.
I’m seriously considering switching myself and my family to another provider as I see no end to this issue. I’m paying for the service which does not reliably work. I would rather pay more and not have to worry about it. I think Republic Wireless should issue partial refunds every month to those users that have experienced the issue that month. I have recommended Republic Wireless to many of my friends before (and a dozen of them have joined Republic Wireless since), however, I am no longer recommending it. This is simply ridiculous that we have to experience this issue in this day and age!
