I have metropcs $25 plan right now , unlimited text/talk. Even though I posted this deal I passed at the time because I had a work cell I was using for free. Come to find out they don't want use to use them so I missed the first beta for RW. I do however have my spot reserved for this time around. Willing to give them a try.
Didn't realize metro had a 25 plan. Thought they started at 35 (40-$5 family). Interesting.
That said, they don't have coverage at my work. Tried them for a week.

One happy wife! Running video game deal list: $155 bought me 3DS: DKCR, ALBW, PkmnY, MarioGolf, Starfox, FE:A WiiU: NinLand, BatmanAC, AC4, W101, NG:RE, MK8, Pikmin 3, NSLU, 3DWorld, ZombiU
I have been using two of the first beta's that came out last year. They work fine. The call quality could be better but for $19 its a deal.
I cant wait to end my $80 att contract and go back until a new iphone comes out.
I'm also disappointed in the potential price points of these phones.
I want the Galaxy S II, but I'm not willing to pay $500 for one.
The S III is coming out and the brand new (ebay) prices for the S II will soon be in the $200 range.
I am willing to bet that I get at least the low-end right, mid-range maybe, only the high-end am I still sketchy about because of the 7MP camera thing.
Yeah, you might be right on those. The only doubt I have is that they use a ton of CM Code in their OSes, which would lead me to believe that they would use a CM supported [cyanogenmod.com] or Unofficial CM Ported[cyanogenmod.com] phone, of which neither of those are (The Optimus has been unofficially ported). I really doubt that they would port CM to a device on their own so they could use it (I could be wrong though).
And I'm really hoping that the entry level phone isn't that Huawei. Reviews make it seem to be a step down from the optimus...
EDIT: I found a build for the Ascend II[playfuldroidz.com], but WIFI is broken in it which defeats the purpose of Republic to begin with... Plus it hasn't been updated for months.
Just a caveat emptor regarding RW and their taxes and fees:
They offer ZERO transparency on what they actually charge in fees (even when asked directly, they only will give you a lump sum for "fees and surcharges"; they won't give you a breakdown of what comprises that total), and they charge a LOT more than Virgin Mobile does.
Not only is the amount RW charges proportionally higher, but the flat amount is higher... on a lower plan cost.
For comparison, I am grandfathered under Virgin's $25 plan (now only retainable as long as you don't change phones). I have my credit card on file with Virgin Mobile, the same way I would with RW. No discount top-up cards or any of that stuff. Comparable billing methods under both plans.
T-mobile I can do four phones with data etc... for about $135 a month. Value plan and emp discount.
RW will cost me around $100, NO 4G and what if they fail... i will have 4 expensive paper wights...
yeah this plus the $200 buy-in which nets me 0 upgrade from the phone I am already using which is on the same network with the same ultra-slow 3g has me leaning more toward the t-mobile 4g 5gb plan for $30. The only thing I am really sacrificing is the fact that Sprint has a bigger network.
