If I’m not planning to swap SIM cards to make the phone app work, can I take my Republic phone to Europe, and still use WIFI to run apps like WhatsApp or Skype?
You certainly can! I’ve used my RW phone across the pond several times, and have never swapped out the SIM card. My strategy is to:
-Download offline Google Maps of the cities/towns I’m going to be visiting
-Offline apps for the public transportation systems of cities. Some of these have maps that will ping your GPS location and let you know how far you are from a station/stop.
-Google Translate language packs downloaded for each country. Really helpful for figuring things out, and if you can even type/talk in a message and it’ll translate it and say it.
