If you just received our MyRepublic SIM card, do allow 1 - 2 days for your number to be updated in the database for OTP.

I can't receive OTP/ SMS from any app

  1. Check if your SMS blocker is turned on, if yes - do turn it off and try again

Check if you are able to receive any SMS from another mobile number. If you are able to receive it, it is likely due to app/ merchant issue. The best solution is to directly reach out to the specific app/ merchant's contact support to highlight this issue.
