    Well got my new cell phone ! After reading and reading and reading LOL Got my new Cell phone from Republic Wireless they offer only one model. But hey for only $ 19.00 a month for unlimited everything ! Why not ? I am not into the whole Smart phone craze. I love my flip phone its alot smaller then those laptops everyone carries in ther pocket. But I do like the Features of the Smart Phone they have its a Motorola Android DEFY XT its water proof, dirt proof and has gorilla glass so you cant scratch it. Its amazing i dropped Sprint after being with them over 10 years paying them over $ 100 amonth on average with all those stupid surCharges. And now Republic uses Sprint and NO Data limits or throttling back on speed. Why couldnt Sprint just do that to begin with ? :mad:

    I didnt want to miss the boat on this like i did with Ooma ! My buddy told me when Ooma came out to get one and i messed around and never bothered with it. Now all those original Ooma customers have Free Phone over the internet for ever and NO Bill and the New customer have to pay Tax every month ! :mad:

    Thanks for the heads up;) Just so happens I read your post on Saturday and Sunday morning I reach in to my pocket and find my current mobile phone is broken.

    The one thing you didn't mention is the up front $250 to buy the phone. Still overall a lot of savings here vs the Big Boys.

    Obviously a very low end Android phone, but I guess you can't beat the price. Too bad Sprint's network isn't better.

    They posted on ther site ther bringing more models online later this year. But so far Im enjoying this phone. I guess because its only $ 19.00 a month compaired I paid more in Taxes and Fee's with my old cell phone.

    That's good information. Thank you!

    I mapped my address and my house is in the only gray area for miles around. So I would be in a roaming zone.

    Thanks for this topic. New phone will be here Tuesday. $19/month plus $99 for the phone beats the hell out of what we're paying AT&T.

    Really? I thought they charged for going outside Sprint network? If not, it might work for us. Otherwise, the only network that works worth a darn around here is Verizon.

    Here is a link on Roaming https://community.republicwireless.com/docs/DOC-1124

    They also offer a FULL REFUND but you have to do it in less then 30 days !
    The other cool feature is this a Hybrid phone it uses wifi or cell so if you have crappy coverage at home but have good wifi
