- With an alternate phone, send a text to your Republic Wireless number -- If no notification alert sounds, continue to step 5.
Place phone in Safe Mode
- Safe mode does disable the use of Republic Anywhere. Android Messages would be the recommend app for testing in safe mode.
- Re-test text notification alert functionality
If the phone does receive text notifications while in safe mode, it is likely that a 3rd party app downloaded to your phone is causing interference with notifications coming in. The problem-causing app will need to be uninstalled in order to restore text notification alerts.
If the phone does not receive text notifications while in safe mode, please open a Support Ticket and list the troubleshooting steps you have completed.
