I’m not sure I’ve ever gotten a text alert while on RW. I didn’t get them while on Project Fi either so this may be a shortcoming in the city/county/state that I live in. The last time I got an alert on any phone was on AT&T service and while traveling (with a phone that is 2 generations old). So I have absolutely nothing to compare with.
It would be nice if there were a way to get a test message at least from the RW system just to verify that it is capable of working at all.
Short of that a definitive statement from RW that they support the standards mentioned here:
so that I can focus on why my local community is not supporting these things.
On a possibly related not when I checked my phones APNs just now I noticed that my active one is named “Republic Wholesale” but there is another one called “Republic IMS”. Is this an alternate Republic service or something unrelated? I don’t remember the words “Wholesale” or “IMS” being there before (but maybe I just didn’t notice.)
