The Motorola DEFY XT for Republic Wireless

Republic Wireless is the MVNO that offers unlimited talk, text and data for just $19 a month. How can Republic do this? By using VoIP and using Sprint 3G to fill in the gaps, Republic offers a low priced service that can save smartphone users a ton of cash. The only caveat is that right now, the only phone that works with the service is a specially equipped Motorola DEFY XT. Priced at $249, the device features a 3.7 inch screen with resolution of 480 x 854 and a pixel density of 265ppi. The phone runs on Android 2.3.7, has a single-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 1GB of native storage, a 5MP camera on back that captures video in 480p at 30fps and a .3MP front facing shooter. A 1650mAh battery powers the phone. The unit is resistant to water, dust and scratches.

If paying $249 for such decidedly low-end specs has you concerned, Republic Wireless has another option for you. You can buy the handset for just $99, but if you choose that option, your monthly rate will rise to $29. That still brings you the unlimited talk, text and data service as before, just at a higher price.

I originally thought that Republic had a chance with this idea. Now T-mobile has free wifi calling on far better Android devices and this monthly price point can be nearly reached if you go with the T-mo $30 per month plan
