Can't Send Texts in Republic Anywhere on Samsung Galaxy Phones

 Symptoms

  • Unable to send texts from the Republic Anywhere app
  • Error message "Not Sent. Tap to try again."

Environment

  • Samsung Galaxy S7
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus 
  • Android 7.0 Nougat
  • Republic Anywhere app version 1.0.10

Resolution

Turn off Data saver setting; see How To Turn Off the Data Saver

Cause

While the data saver is enabled, the phone will attempt to conserve and regulate the amount of cellular data used by each app. This results in issues with the Republic Anywhere app sending texts, as data access permissions are required to route text messages properly.
