Get a free Google Chromecast w/ purchase of a MotoX phone from Republic Wireless (and a giveaway for you!)


Republic Wireless

Did you know that over 60% of US households have WiFi networks installed at home?  Ours is one of those households, and we sure do love our WiFi.  All five of us use it daily, on our phones and laptops and tablets.  But it doesn't come cheap, especially on top of all the phone and data plans we have to pay.  One of Alfie's and my major pet peeves is that we have to pay for WiFi AND we have to pay for all our cell phones.  We set our phones to WiFi when we get home anyway, so we really ought to receive some kind of discount for using it!

Well, guess what?  I've recently discovered a phone service that actually does that -- well, sort of.  Republic Wireless uses Hybrid Calling technology to use WiFi networks for calls, texts and data when a WiFi network is available, and a cellular network when WiFi isn't available.  Since WiFi is cheaper than cellular, they are able to pass the savings on to their customers, and offer extremely cheap, all-inclusive plans.  All plans are no-contract plans, and you can switch from plan to plan, up to two times per month.  They offer 2 phones -- the Motorola MotoX and MotoG -- for just $299 and $149, respectively, and you don't have to lock yourself into a contract to get those prices!  Plus, for a limited time only, Republic Wireless is having a promo where you get a free Google Chromecast when you buy a MotoX! It's a great deal, but it won't last long because supplies are limited, and I'm told that over half of the Chromecasts for the promo have already been snapped up!


Republic Wireless sent me a Motorola MotoX phone to try out with their $40 plan (unlimited talk, text and 4G data on WiFi and cellular networks), and even though I've only been using it for about 2 weeks, I think it's great! The MotoX phone is wonderful, the coverage is great (it runs on WiFi and the Sprint network), and you really can't beat the plan prices. Here's a rundown of the phone plans that Republic Wireless provides, and what I think about them:

$5 WiFi only plan -- Unlimited talk, text and data over WiFi. To me, this plan doesn't really cut it as a cell phone, because you need WiFi, and you never know when you'll be in a WiFi network outside your home, so you won't be able to use this phone to call for roadside assistance, or to call for a taxi outside a bar. So it would basically be a phone you leave at home -- so it does sound crazy to pay $5 per month when you're using your own WiFi.  But if you think of it as a home phone, you'll realize how cheap it is.  We pay $20 per month for our home phone line!  Note, you can have this plan as your "base" plan, then switch to any of the other plans when you plan to travel and need cellular service.  Plans are no-contract, and you can switch plans up to twice per month!

$10 WiFi + Cell Talk &Text -- Unlimited data over WiFi only, unlimited talk & text anywhere (WiFi or cellular). This is a great first plan for middle school kids.  You want to be able to call or text them, but you don't want them on social media or the web when they're out with friends.

$25 WiFi + Cell (3G) Talk, Text & Data -- Unlimited unlimited talk, text & data anywhere (WiFi or cellular), with 3G data speeds.  This is how much we currently pay for The Pea's "budget" cell phone plan, which has unlimited talk and text... but includes a measly 100 MB of data (which she can use up in just 1 week!).

$40 WiFi + Cell (4G) Talk, Text & Data (available only on Moto X) -- This is Republic's "premium" plan, and it's still cheaper than any of the big carrier's plans! Alfie's "big carrier" plan costs $50 per month, and it includes only 250 MB of data!

I'll be posting a more detailed review of my experiences with Republic Wireless, so stay tuned... but in the meantime, enjoy this Google Chromecast giveaway courtesy of Republic Wireless!
