If you’re trying to manage your bills, one area where you may be able to save some significant money is by switching your cellphone provider. With many couples, paying for an unlimited family plan for 4 people can set them back about $180-$200/month. How would you like to cut that bill down in half,  $100/month?

Starting next month, Republic Wireless is selling the Moto G (starting at $149) , a very capable smartphone. Customers can choose what cell phone plan works best for them, including:

  • Unlimited talk, text, and data on WiFi only – $5/month
  • Unlimited talk and text on WiFi and cellular, and unlimited data on WiFi – $10/month
  • Unlimited talk, text and data on WiFi, plus talk, text and data on 3G cellular – $25/month

The icing on the cake is that are no contracts or termination fees. With the Moto G coming out and the Moto X (which is 4G LTE compatible) that they offered this past fall, Republic Wireless is fast becoming an attractive options for families looking to drastically cut their cell phone bill without sacrificing service.

More Smartphone Choices

I’ve mention before that I believe Republic Wireless has some fantastic deals on cheap smartphone plans. When I signed up with them, they had the Motorola Defy XT. It’s a reliable phone (I still use it), but it was far from the top tier, fast as lightening phones that many people want and for some people, it was a deal breaker. I know this because when I mentioned the plan prices, people got excited and asked questions, but when I showed them the phone, they were less enthusiastic.

When the Moto X was released on their network, people were curious, but the hefty price tag with buying a new phone ($299) was a hurdle for some. Now with a $149 option for a good smartphone, I think more families should take another look at switching to Republic Wireless. The money saved can be pretty significant.

If you’re interested in using Republic Wireless and getting unlimited talk, text, and data, then sign up today.

How Republic Wireless Works

For those who haven’t heard of Republic Wireless  and are curious about how they are able to offer such low prices for unlimited plans, their  ‘secret’ is hybrid calling.  Hybrid calling has your phone use Wi-Fi for calls, web, text, and all things mobile and if there isn’t Wi-Fi available your phone uses the cellular network. They are a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) of Sprint.

They offer seamlessly transition between wi-fi and celluar so you shouldn’t notice anything when you’re on a call if you move between one and the other.  I’ve used my phone and have found it and the service works just as well as ‘conventional’ phone providers in my area.
