Additional Notes

Republic Wireless phones use the Republic Wireless app to manage multiple phone services. Since many phones don't recognize our app as a native or pre-installed app, having battery saving features enabled or turned ON may result in issues with texting, calling, access to data, etc. We advise that the battery saving setting remain disabled for these reasons. This also includes third-party apps intended to limit or reduce battery usage.
