State of the Republic (v. 1, issue 22)

Blog Post created by sarahd on Feb 8, 2013

Hello Republic community! We hope all of you are enjoying the improved services from last week's update. Here's what we have this week:


Wi-Fi+ App: If you haven't downloaded the new Wi-Fi+ app we released on January 29, 2013, we suggest you do. Why, you ask? This app, when used in conjunction with theOver The Air (OTA) update, will be a significant upgrade in your calling experience and overall user experience of the DEFY XT. You can download the app to your phone through the Google Play store on the web using this link, or you can download it on your phone by opening the Play store and searching for “Republic Wireless.” Set the app to auto-update so when we release new features, you’ll get the latest version.


Five bars and 10,000 points: Congratulations are in order for one of our members. This person has been with us from the very beginning and not only has a library of information in his mind, but he's also willing to share that info with the rest of us. I'm sure all of you have seen him around the community. Please help us congratulate billmeek for reaching 10,000 points and filling up all five bars. That's a lot of posts, a lot of responses, and a whole lot of helping Republic members. Thanks for everything you do billmeek! To congratulate billmeek for yourself, please post in this discussion.


Share the love and win! Thanks to everyone who participated in our recent rendition of the Mobile Makeover contest. We had a lot of creative, enthusiastic entries and eight more folks got free Republic smartphones--very cool. Our next social media contest launched today, and we're asking Republic members to "Share the love and win!" Check it out on our Facebook page. If you tell us why you love Republic, you could win 6 months of free service. Contest runs through February 20, 2013. Not on Facebook? No problem. Simply tell us why you love Republic here in the community and you'll be eligible to win 6 months of free service too! If you're not already a member, stay tuned for more exciting contests coming soon.


Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
