Has Republic Wireless Found a Workaround for Its Incompatibility With Venmo?

Environment

Answer

While Venmo cannot use Republic Wireless phone numbers for the initial setup, there are a couple of options.

  • Use another common money transfer app that does work with VoIP numbers (Cash app, Wave, etc).
  • Use a non-Republic cell number to receive the verification code.
    • As a phone number for verification/setup is only needed once, using a friend's phone number to receive the verification text and entering the code in the Venmo app on the Republic phone should work.
