Frequently Asked Questions

Are Republic phones just “WiFi” phones? What if there’s no WiFi available?

Absolutely not. Republic Wireless phones work on both WiFi and cellular networks, depending on the plan you choose. Republic Wireless offers smartphones like any other in all the important ways. When you don’t have access to WiFi, everything still works great over the nationwide cellular network.

Do you have coverage in my area?

Do you have coverage in my area?

Our service is like no other. Most phone carriers use only cell towers for service, but we take that a step further and combine cell with WiFi for talk and text too. Since we use both, we’re actually able to offer most folks more coverage beyond what you’ve used in the past at a super affordable price. Our phones have fast, nationwide 4G LTE, plus added coverage wherever there’s available WiFi like at your home or at work. To check Republic coverage in your area, visit our smart coverage checker tool.

How does Republic’s calling technology work?

How does Republic's calling technology work?

Republic Wireless turns the traditional cellular model on its head. Our phones use WiFi first, with cellular as the backup network. With our patented Adaptive Coverage™ technology, your phone will seamlessly switch calls between WiFi and cell voice depending on availability without dropping your call. When you’re connected to a WiFi signal that isn’t as strong, we’ll use both cell and WiFi together for maximum voice quality. The result is a smartphone with all the coverage and capability of a regular phone, but with the added power of WiFi for talk and text in the places cell can’t always reach.

Why does the phone I’m selecting say it’s not optimized for coverage?

Coverage can vary by phone model. Some phones have hardware and software that gives them access to all available cell towers whereas others are limited. If you’re receiving this notice before purchase, it means that in your particular area, the selected phone won’t work as well.
