Unable to Sign up for Target Circle With My Republic Wireless Number

 

Symptoms

  • Republic Wireless number not accepted as a valid mobile number when signing up for Target Circle

Environment

  • All Republic Wireless phones
  • Account registration for Target Circle

Resolution

Do not enter a phone number during registration for Target Circle. Only enter your email address. The phone number is optional and registration can be completed without it. 

Cause

Republic Wireless numbers are considered VoIP (Voice Over Internet) numbers and not wireless numbers. Since our VoIP services use mainly WiFi to operate and not mobile towers, we are recognized by some companies or apps as landline or wireline instead of wireless. This isn't something that we're able to change.
