The RW app manages all aspects of your Republic Wireless account. It is made up of four tabs.
- My Data
- Your Phone Info
- Republic Help
This document focuses on the various menus in the My Data tab that can be used to view and manage your cellular data.
The My Data tab shows your current data usage and allows you to add one-time data or make changes to your monthly plan.
This functionality is modified for phones running Android 10 and higher starting with app version 3-30-0-82 Republic Wireless App Update Version 188.8.131.52 – Republic Help

Tap once on the blue bar graph and then press and slide the black date markers to zoom in on a smaller date range all the way down to a single day.
