Venmo cannot be used?

Trying to load Venmo app on my republic wireless Moto I got the message that I needed to use a mobile phone… Which it was.
After trouble shooting with Venmo I was told that the service is not available on republic and I need to switch to att, Sprint, Verizon etc.
Can anyone else install Venmo?
