I have tried to reproduce this between two Republic phones, but I have been unable to. Have you tried the usual tricks (clearing the Republic cache, resetting the Republic connections, and refreshing the activation)?
However, I did find out that texting to my Google Voice doesn’t appear to be working via Republic phones on or off WiFi. I have tried two separate RW phones with no success. I used an iphone on Cricket to send texts to the Google Voice number with success. Do note that I am able to receive texts from the GV number to my Republic phone.
@Ambassadors can any of you try to reproduce this?
Update: cleared cache, reset Republic connections, and refreshed the activation. Still not going through to GV number.
