Trying to join Dosh but getting a Voip notice

hello – when i try to join Dosh i get the message

Please enter a valid US (50 state) non-Voip mobile phone number

i tried turning OFF wi-fi but still get the message. are RW people not allowed to use Dosh?

Republic as a Hybrid VOIP WiFi first with Cell backup providers their numbers are classified as VOIP by the FCC (and they have to be to work over WiFi)
lots of payment and money transfer apps do not accept VOIP for security reasons (they are easily created and can not be used to verify identify the end users) (some including the IRS will not accept a prepaid number which Republic also qualify as for same reasons)
a detail discussion on this can be found in this thread
