Additional Notes

Republic Wireless phones use the Republic Wireless app to manage the phone services we enjoy. Since many phones don't recognize our app as a native app or pre-installed app, having the Data Saver enabled or turned on may result in interference with texting, calling, data access, etc. For these reasons, if you experience any issues with calling/texting while Data Saver is enabledwe recommend disabling the data saving feature to see if it could be a part of the problem. This is especially true for third-party apps intended to regulate or reduce data usage.

If you want to try using Data Saver, and want to ensure you have set it up correctly to not restrict data used by the RW app, please refer to How to Enable Data Saver.
