Republic Wireless Motorola Defy XT $99 but $29 a month
Republic Wireless is now offering the Motorola Defy XT for $99 however service is $29 a month with this option instead of $19 a month if you spend $249 for the phone. So $447 for a year saying you keep the phone for one year with the $99 option. Or $477 with option 2.
If you go with the $99 phone your looking at $37.25 a month for a year.
If you by the phone for $249 your looking at $39.75 a month for a year.
Not sure how taxes would figure in probably a wash on taxes. I still don't think the phone is worth it for $37.25 a month plus taxes. still much cheaper than anything else you will find. Guess the big question would be is the phone worth keeping for a year or two cause the longer you have it the more you save?

If you can live with the Defy XT then it's a pretty good deal.
However, I was following republic wireless for a while and found out about Ting. I realized that I could do even better on my monthly bill going with Ting because you can just use google voice to make calls on wifi for free. Then you just pay for tiers for however many minutes, texts and data you use. No overage charges they just move you to the next tier if you go over. Also, they will credit you if you never reach the tier you paid for. I'm around wifi so much I never use data and I end up at the two lowest tiers for txts and calls. So, it's just $12 + fees a month for me most months. Plus they have tons of phones to choose from. No iphone yet, but there are rumors they'll get it some day. It uses Sprint's network as well but you actually get access to 4G LTE. Just an alternative in case people are interested.
Ok Question. I'm around wifi a lot also. So 100 minutes would be no problem. If your on wifi can you use google voice to text also. I text all the time on my HP touchpad using Google voice over wifi. Would I be able to do the same over wifi without being charged with one of their phones? Also how much is 100 megabytes. Once again I will be using the phone most of the time on wifi so would I be charged data usage if on wifi?
So 100 minutes is no problem, 100 text might be unless i can use google voice. 100 bites not sure about. Also I'm new to the cell phone world. Which is a good phone without breaking the bank? I see the have refurbished. What would you recommend
You can choose either:
$249 for a Motorola Defy XT and pay $19 +tax a month
$99 for the same Motorola Defy XT and pay $29 +tax a month
From the site:
A truly smart smartphone should make a habit of using Wi-Fi for everything. Surfing. Texting. Sharing. And, yes, even talking. And you definitely shouldn't have to download any special apps to use Wi-Fi. It should be automatic, built-in. You just use your phone. The beauty of Republic Wireless is Hybrid Calling, which allows you to harness the power of Wi-Fi for calls, texts and data while also having full cellular capabilities.
