I’m not sure what was “too good”. The Moto Z was available for the entire sale period, with the six months free service. They even extended the sale period by a week.
The Huawei Ascend sold out very quickly. We got two. We returned both. Hated them. I can’t blame Republic for this. We thought about keeping them for the free service, but free service with a phone you hate just won’t work.
Other than sour grapes over missing the Ascend sale… I’m not sure what this is about.
As far as Consumer Cellular goes, they may have phone support, but their pricing isn’t close to competitive.
Their base plan, $15 for 250 minutes. Republic’s $15 for unlimited calling/texting.
Their $20 plan is 250 calling minutes, 2,000 texts and 200MB of data. Republic’s $20 is unlimited calling/texting and 1GB of data.
I’ll mention that for heavy users, it gets worse.
If you want unlimited calling/texts and 4GB of data their price is $90. DOUBLE Republic’s cost. And additional data is $10/GB AT REDUCED SPEEDS! That’s a lot of phone support!
