Most families seek ways to save money while still keeping up with technology. And our cellphone bill is one expense that we all most likely want to save on. As I have mentioned in some previous posts, our current cellphone bill is around $250 for 4 lines. This includes unlimited texts and calls, as well as unlimited data.
I've been looking around for good deals on phone plans so I can give everyone in my family an idea on how much we can save if we move to another plan or carrier. And one of the good deals I have found may only cost us around $90-$100 per month, tax included.
Republic Wireless offers phone plans for as low as $19 per month, no contracts! This already includes unlimited texts, unlimited calls and unlimited data! Republic Wireless operates under the Sprint network.
At the moment, Republic Wireless can only work on one phone — the Motorola DEFY XT smartphone — because it's the only one that can support their technology as of now. The Motorola DEFY™ XT Smartphone has the following features:
- Front-facing VGA Webcam
- Rear-facing camera with auto focus/LED Flash, 4x digital zoom
- Android operating system with wi-fi and Sprint® 3G Coverage with dual-band reception
- Over 450,000 Apps through Google Play™
- 3.7 inch Corning® Gorilla® glass display
- Dustproof, water and scratch resistant
As you can see, the Motorola DEFY XT has all the same features of almost any Android phone out in the market today. The only difference is that this phone has the Hybrid Calling technology of Republic Wireless that allows users to make calls both on cellular networks and on WiFi networks. This is how they're able to offer such a good package at such a low price!
I think this would be a good option for a "first smartphone" for both adults and kids especially if Sprint has great coverage in your area. If your area has Sprint LTE coverage, that's even better! Check out the video below for more information!
