I switched to Republic Wireless a few months back from Verizon. They were killing me with the monthly charges. Around $120 a month. Verizon does have the best 4G coverage. I wonít deny that. I got the Republic plan for $25 a month. Unlimited calls, text and data with 3G. It doesnít have the 4G on my plan. It takes a few seconds longer for the internet to load compared to Verizon. But for $100 a month savings its well worth it. If you get the 4G with Republic remember you might not have use of it except in large cities. Im completely happy with the plan I have. I have no dropped calls. It works great. Get the Moto X phone and not the Defy (it sucks). The Moto X rocks. Yes, you will have to pay $299 for the phone upfront but it pays for itself in a few months. Do the math and figure out your yearly cost compared with your current plan. I have a link that you can use to save $19 for the first month. Yes, it helps me with my bill too when you do. I wonít lie. For Christmas bonus my boss decided to let most of us go and I am unemployed. If you donít like Republic, there is no contract. Just switch back. It is a great company. Here is the link. Cut and paste if it needed. Thanks!! http://referrals.republicwireless.com/a/clk/1ymPvN
There is no "trick."
It is called TECHNOLOGY and republic uses a hybrid phone with wi-fi priority. Sprint cellular is the backup to the wi-fi you already have access to.
The same phone at the major barriers is MORE expensive when you factor in the cost of what they charge for the same service each month for a REQUIRED contract.
republic wireless has no caps on usage. The other, major, carriers do.
This is incorrect - Republic is no contract (but you won't be able to take the phone to another carrier)
The beauty of Republic Wireless is no contracts and a steal of a deal ... Buy a non subsidized phone and pick the plan that works best for you. With the Moto X they let you change plans up to twice a month right on the handset. Using Wi-Fi and cellular means you have something to talk on when the cellular signal is weak...briliant idea really.
No 32gb variant for $350?
Considering hardware is inferior in many ways to Nexus 5, the latter seems a better choice.
