Is there a way to verify that you’re currently roaming on towers outside of the RW GSM network? Or a way to test and see if voice roaming is active on your phone?
I ask because when I initially activated my RW account and SIM, I was amazed to find that I had full LTE service. My amazement was because the provider I was coming from is an MVNO that also operates on the same GSM network as Republic and I would only receive 1 or 2 bars with them. I remembered @rolandh had mentioned that RW offers voice roaming, [quote=“rolandh, post:2, topic:10457”]
It may even be a bit better since Republic’s service offers voice roaming, which many MVNOs do not.

However, after my number was ported from my old provider to Republic, the cell signal went back to the same old mediocre 1 or 2 bars I had been getting under the old provider. So I’m trying to understand if that first signal upon initial activation was some sort of a fluke or maybe the voice roaming is not working properly after the number port?
Anyone know more information about the ins and outs of RW’s voice roaming feature?
