Moto X to be $299 off-contract through Republic Wireless

Republic Wireless will be offering the Moto X for just $299 off-contract, which is by far the best deal you'll find for the device. The one problem is that while the device will be off-contract, you won't be able to use it on other carriers, because Republic Wireless is an MVNO using the Sprint network, so it will be locked to that network. Sprint means no SIM card, so no way to switch to another network.
The Moto X will be available on Republic Wireless starting in November. The carrier famously offers an unlimited everything plan (on Sprint's CDMA network) for $19, or you can get access to Sprint's LTE network for $40 per month.

The article is not entirely correct. There will be a SIM card, just like all new Sprint LTE devices, since Republic's top tier will include LTE.

Sorry Michael H. but the actual plan for Sprint LTE to be unlimited is $80 for the first line to be unlimited everything. I work for them and it is a difficult plan to explain to a customer over the phone each day especially when working in internal escalations.
