Republic Wireless is the latest wireless provider to come out with a phone plan deal. Those who activate service with the MVNO and transfer their number will get 60 days of free phone service. The free service includes unlimited talk and text with 1GB of 4G LTE data.
Offer Fine Print
Customers interested in this offer must activate a new line of service with Republic Wireless by March 31, 2019 at 11:59 PM EST to get the deal. (Update - this promotion has been extended to last until June 30, 2019 at 11:59 PM ET). Customers must also port a number to Republic Wireless within 30 days of activation. Current customers are not eligible for this deal.
Subscribers who meet the eligibility requirements will then get 2 months of unlimited talk and text valued at $15/month, and 2 months of 1GB of data valued at $5/month. That's a savings of $20/month over what the plan would normally cost. Taxes and fees are not included in the offer and subscribers will be responsible for paying them. Those who would like to use more than 1GB of data in a month can go ahead and do so but will have to pay $5 for every extra GB of data that they consume.
One other thing to be aware of if you are interested in this offer is that not every phone works with and is supported by Republic Wireless. For starters, iPhones are not supported.
Republic Wireless operates on both the Sprint and T-Mobile networks. So your phone will need to support at least one of those two networks. Approximately 40 devices are supported for BYOD. Select Samsung Galaxy devices are supported, and so are a majority of phones made by Motorola over the last several years. You can see the full list of supported phones here.
If you would like to purchase a phone from Republic Wireless, prices range from $99 for the Alcatel A30 to $719 for the Samsung Galaxy S9. Nearly all available phones are models from Samsung and Motorola. Phones are available with device financing for as low as $11/month.
