Win a Motorola Moto X and a year of free service from Republic Wireless

Win a Motorola Moto X and a year of free service from Republic Wireless
Wouldn't it just be amazing if you could start out the new year with a free Motorola Moto X? And even better, suppose this handset came with a free year of service? Hybrid carrier Republic Wireless has such a prize for its current contest, but before we get into that, let's discuss Republic for a minute. For $40 a month, Republic offers unlimited talk, text and 4G internet. They can do this because the carrier uses Wi-Fi connectivity and when there is a gap, it switches over to Sprint.

But wouldn't you need a special phone to do this? Right you are. Republic is offering a specially designed Motorola Moto X for $299. The phone is made to handle hybrid calling. For $99, you can buy a beta version of the Motorola DEFY XT that is water, dust and scratch resistant.

So that's Republic's story. Now back to the contest. There are three ways to enter. On Twitter, follow Republic Wireless and send a tweet to @RepublicWirelss. Make sure you use the hashtag #MotoXGiveaway and tweet the reason why you want to win the phone and the service. Those who members of the Republic Wireless community can send an email to, and include your community username. Or go to Republic's Facebook page to enter.

Entries are accepted until 11:59pm EST on January 12th. Each method of entering (email, Facebook or Twitter) will have one winner who will receive the phone and the service. Now here is the thing about the free service. The winner will get 12 months of the $10 a month service which gives you unlimited talk and text over a cell network and Wi-Fi, and unlimited data over Wi-Fi only. Hey, the winner is still getting the Moto X, although it will be set up for Republic Wireless' hybrid calling service.
