Republic Wireless is shaking things up recently, first by adding a bunch of high-end handsets to its range, and today by changing up its plans. Remember when the carrier started giving you a credit for the data you didn’t use every month? Well, that promotion would appear to have been taken away with its newly announced “Clear Choice Plans” that are a little cheaper for the most part. Join us after the break for more details.

Republic Wireless is an innovative phone service, but one of the biggest pain points for the carrier has been its lack of high-end phones. Currently your only options on phones are the Moto E and Moto G, and while those aren’t bad phones by any stretch, you’re extremely limited in your options. If you want to plop down the cash for a high-end device, you’re simply out of luck. Read more
Republic Wireless, the carrier that prides itself on switching between cellular and WiFi networks, is ready to offer another Motorola device to customers at the end of October. The carrier will begin selling the Moto G (2015) on October 27 in two color options and storage sizes. This is in addition to Republic Wireless already offering the Moto E (2015) and Moto X (2014).
Next month, Republic Wireless will begin pushing software updates to its slate of Motorola phones. The phones are awaiting the Stagefright fix, Android 5.1 Lollipop, or both.
Republic Wireless aims to improve the quality of its service by harnessing the power of a WiFi network. The carrier has already allowed seamless transition when moving ongoing calls over a WiFi connection to its nationwide network; however, with ‘Project Salsa’, its latest experiment, customers are able to switch a call from Republic Wireless’ network to WiFi. Call quality obviously benefits from the strength of a WiFi network.
“Beautifully simple, simply priced.” That’s the phrase that Republic Wireless is using to market the Motorola Moto E (2015) to its customers. The carrier started selling the entry-level device today at the very affordable price of $129. And, yes, this is for the 4G LTE model. Read more
Like so many wireless carriers, Republic Wireless is joining the parade in moving away from unlimited data plans and is shifting to a business model based on users only paying for what they actually use. The new Refund Plan options Republic announced today provide a refund to customers for any high-speed data they paid for but ended up not using during a month. Read more
I don’t know about you, but it seems like one of the U.S. carriers is offering a new promotion every day. It’s impossible to keep up with all of them, and I guess you have to thank T-Mobile for starting this trend.
Republic Wireless dropped a doozy yesterday by announcing they will pay customers for their unused cellular data. Most carriers sell data per month in 1 GB increments or 500 MB for entry level programs, but nobody uses exactly the data they purchased. There is always some left on the table at the end of the month.
The Moto X is about to launch on another carrier’s network. On December 10, Republic Wireless will be adding the Motorola flagship to its lineup. And the carrier is celebrating the launch by taking $50 off the price when purchasing directly through the online store or Moto Maker. So, through this promotion, the Moto X will cost $349 without a two-year contract from Republic Wireless. The only variant available through the carrier’s online store is 16GB in black with silver.

This one is a little tricky, so listen up. Motorola’s Moto X is getting a price drop through two different locations. The first is from Motorola’s very own store and it only applies to one model. The Moto X for Republic Wireless can be customized through Moto Maker and the total cost comes in at $349. Whether or not this is permanent, we will will have to wait and see.
The other option is with Amazon. You can get the GSM model of the Moto X for $349 as well. This means for $349, you can take it to any GSM carrier such as AT&T or T-Mobile.
Unfortunately, it does not seem as if Verizon or Sprint models are involved in any deals. But if you have an education email address, ending in “.edu,” Moto Maker has the Moto X available for $339. So there is a way to take advantage of some sort of Moto X deal regardless of your carrier.
