Republic Wireless exits beta, $19 a month unlimited talk, text and data is now yours
You might remember us talking a few times about Republic Wireless. This is the carrier that uses Wi-Fi service where possible, and Sprint's 3G cellular service when Wi-Fi isn't available. For $19 per month, you get unlimited talk, text and data. Right now, the phone being offered by the carrier is a special dual-band Motorola DEFY XT with will cost you $249, plus a $10 start-up fee. And even with the $19 a month service, there is still a 30 day money back guarantee.

Republic Wireless has exited beta testing and is taking pre-orders now for the special version of the Motorola DEFY XT that will switch you back and forth between Wi-Fi and cellular as needed. You can order up to four phones and they will ship by the middle of next month. If you do subscribe, your first $19 is charged when the phone is shipped. Because of the price, Republic does not have a call center, nor does it have any brick and mortar stores.
