Very interesting. I've been super happy with PagePlus since switching to them from T-Mobile in late April - since I don't talk much I still have $24+ in credit out of the initial $82, and it doesn't expire until next April. Perfect for me so I think I'll be sticking with them for the foreseeable future but I'll definitely be keeping an eye on Republic...it would be nice to have unlimited data instead of just occasionally being able to take advantage of open Wi-Fi networks!
Since they're buying minutes from SPRINT, I assume they're using SPRINT'S network when WiFi is not available. That will be problematic for those not in larger urban areas as Sprints coverage is lacking in the 'boons.
So lots of dropped calls due to it routing as many calls as possible through WiFi. Sounds like lots of handover issues between WiFi and voice network.
I doubt ANYBODY is going to be complaining about dropped CALLS. This looks like a 100% data play to me.
