I love my iPhone. I’ve been an iPhone girl for several years. You might say that I have an obsession with it. So the prospect of having to give it up, really really REALLY perturbed me. But my phone bill was up to $119 a month with Verizon, and that included unlimited talk, text, and only up to 3 GB of data. So when I discovered Republic Wireless after reading up about it on Clark Howard’s site, I decided that I should take the plunge.
Republic Wireless offers unlimited talk, text, and data for $25 a month!! Just let that sink in for a second. Uh…yeah you heard it right. $25 a month. Sound too good to be true? I thought so, but was willing to test it, especially after reading positive feedback online from other customers.
I ended up purchasing the 16 GB Moto G that runs with the Android operating system. So far I have been really pleased, but there are a few drawbacks. Watch my video below to see what I have to say about this phone and the phone service.
If you do plan to check it out, I do recommend that you check to make sure you have good coverage in your area. You can learn more and see if you’re covered in your area on the Republic Wireless website here.
And this seriously begs the question: Why aren’t the other phone companies doing this yet? I mean, we’re basically all walking advertisers for them when we go around with our phones, but we never get anything for that “free advertising.” I might as well have been wearing a T-shirt for them. Nah dude. Not cool.
But I digress…overall I’m happy with it, with the main drawback of the phone itself being the camera. And I seriously miss my iPhone. I find that I’m still using my iPhone over Wi-Fi for photo and video work, so it’s basically become my camera. But for a savings of $94.25 a month, I think it’s well worth the slight “inconvenience.”
What do you think? Have you tried Republic Wireless? Are you with a similar company that you would recommend? I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback!
