Republic Wireless Launches Moto X for $299, No Contract


The idea behind Republic Wireless makes a lot of sense. Your phone is configured to use WiFi whenever it is available, minimizing the cost of connecting to a cellular network. This keeps the plan prices low, but up until now, the handset selection has left a lot to be desired. That changed today.

The Motorola Moto X has been added to the Republic Wireless lineup, giving you a seriously good option for getting on board with the unique wireless carrier. The cheapest plan, at $5/month, only includes Wi-Fi coverage. The three other plans add cellular talk and text, 3G data and 4G data, respectively, topping out at $40/month for unlimited everything.

As far as the Moto X goes, this will be the same phone that you’ll find on other carriers, except it has been pre-configured to work with the Republic Wireless “Hybrid Calling” system of relying first on Wi-Fi. So, you get a 4.7-inch 720p display, a dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon processor, 2GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU, 10MP rear camera, 1.4MP front camera, and touchless controls.

You can order the Moto X now for $299 through Republic Wireless with no contract required a 30-day money back guarantee. That’s about half the outright price at any of the other carriers.
