Republic Wireless will pay you for your unused cellular data

Republic_Wireless_with_Motorola_Phone

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.

When the Moto X is available from Republic Wireless, it will be found on this page.

Motorola Moto X price drops for Republic Wireless, Amazon does the same for the GSM model

Moto_X_Back_Camera_Lens_Motorola_Logo_TA

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.

motorola_dvx_republic_leak

After some Motorola devices showed up in an FCC filing earlier this month, many thought the clues pointed to a U.S. release of the Motorola DVX, a low-cost version of the Moto X. The rumors have been out there for a while now indicating the device may be offered in the U.S. on some prepaid carriers in addition to global emerging markets. A new image from a Bandwidth.com meeting seems to confirm the Motorola DVX is coming to U.S. shores thanks to Republic Wireless.

The image shows the Motorola DVX being released in October, after the release of the Moto X on Republic Wireless and a price drop for the carrier’s current leading phone, the DEFY XT. When the FCC filing first surfaced, readers also uncovered landing pages for the same model number device on overseas retailers with prices in the sub-$200 range. Unfortunately, we still do not have any new information about specs or hardware for the device.
