Are you happy with your wireless carrier? How many times do you hear that from telemarketers and other salesmen? Whenever I am asked that, I say yes, but the truth is that I have yet to find a company that offers it all: great customer support, coverage, and superb pricing. I may find some of those components, but not all of them. That doesn’t mean I won’t stop looking! I just discovered a wireless carrier called Republic Wireless, and so far I like what I’m learning. Because it all sounds so good so far, I thought I’d share with you what I’ve learned! Perhaps some of you have had experience with Republic Wireless, and can share it with the rest of us!
First of all, I learned a shocking statistic that the average American spends more on their monthly cellphone bill than they do on groceries or health insurance. Please tell me that’s not true! Now, I have a family of 6 so that’s not true for me, but I’ll bet it is for some! Republic Wireless thinks that’s crazy and I’m inclined to agree. After all, they think that if a phone is truly smart, then it should be helping you save money. Doesn’t sound half bad right?
Republic Wireless has a $19 a month plan that boasts unlimited data, talk and text on the $199 Motorola DEFY™ XT Smartphone. My favorite part is that there is no contract required, no limits, and no overages! So $19 is the real deal. Now $199 may be a tad more than you would ordinarily pay for a phone but when you consider how much $$ you can save each month, it totally sounds worth it.
Curious about how they can get away with such low rates? I know I was! Republic Wireless uses Hybrid Wi-Fi Calling. This allows you to harness the power of Wi-Fi for calls, data, and texts while also having full cellular capabilities. This Motorola Phone sounds like a great one for a plan like this. Some features of the Motorola DEFY™ XT Smartphone:
- Dustproof and water-resistant with a scratch-resistant display
- Front VGA webcam and 5 MP camera Access to Google Play™, your one-stop-shop for entertainment
- Customizable activity dashboards
So, the data only works at a 3G level, but I’m thinking this would be a great starter smartphone for your teenager/child. Or maybe even your not-so tech savvy spouse or parents. This is a very affordable plan and a great way to get started.
