Love Republic Wireless. Have myself and my 2 sons on this service and pay less than $60 a month. Love that you can bring your own device now, and the expanded phone selection. This app makes it easy to manage your data usage.
Pushing 6 years with republic, love them, using it on a Moto z play, and couldn't be happier with my cost, tethering, calls, everything just works!
Very satisfied after 2.5 years. Saved hundreds. When I got Republic Wireless service back in mid 2014 I did have a lot of bugs with it especially with my router at home. Since the change to the new phones that came out in early 2016 I have loved the service. Now we get two cell phones with 2gb each for about $56/month including tax. Before I was paying nearly $80 to Verizon for 2 non smart phones. I did prefer when it used the Verizon network but the current use if T-Mobile has worked out well for me.
I absolutely love Republic Wireless! Best value and such great phones now that I feel like I'm part of the "it crowd" at an unbeatable price. I have experienced lower photo quality when sending photos through ??S, so I use WhatsApp for all of that. Everything else has been fantastic. Highly recommend. I never even come close to using my data, I've never been much of a data consumer so I just use Spotify premium and download playlists and I'm good. It is a great plan for people of my philosophy and they have other options for more data hungry and less data hungry types as well!
Reasonable prices. My only complaint is that coverage has dropped since I first started with Republic. Though I usually get decent coverage where I live, it's another story when travelling. Verizon is the only cell provider where my parents live, and Republic doesn't work on their network. I have also had frequent issues on both Wi-Fi and cell, where the call goes through, and I can hear the recipient just fine, but they cannot hear me. Hoping this issue gets resolved!
I've been with Republic since the beta, weathered out some rocky months with the defy xt but stuck around not just for the price but because I believed in the concept, and am now LOVING the updated service and my new moto x pure... And still can't beat the price. The app is great at warning me about data limits, and I was able to make calls and send texts over WiFi even in the most cell-tower-less wilderness of Montana! Support answers tickets promptly, and the community boards are informative and helpful. Who needs a physical "phone store" anyway?
Improved WiFi calling. Higher quality MMS images for Huawei devices and Samsung S7 Edge. Various bug fixes and stability enhancements.
