- Republic Wireless number not displayed when calling 911
- Republic Wireless Phones
- 911 Calls over cellular network
- Republic Wireless service is working as designed
When calling 911 over cellular, the phone number that is displayed to the emergency responder is not the Republic number that you give out to family and friends. In order for Hybrid Calling to work, Republic assigns a routing number to your phone that is used behind the scenes when making/receiving cellular calls. It's this routing number that the emergency responder sees automatically when you call 911. If you are asked to verify your phone number, you should provide them with the best number to reach you.
For more information, please see Emergency Services: 911 and E911
If 911 needs to call back they can reach you at either your Republic Number or that routing number.
