Hi @davesin,

I’m able to text Jamaican numbers “natively” (both on Cell/WiFi) from my Republic Wireless phone. So can other RW users that I know. In fact, I did this a day or two ago. Don’t know if the dialing form/format allows this to happen, but it works!: +1-876-XXX-XXXX

Indeed, I see Jamaica is part of the North American Numbering Plan Administration (NANPA). That would be the reason it works as Jamaican numbers look like U.S. and Canadian numbers. I’m reasonably certain, it’s not supposed to work though.
