@drm- Be carefulwhat u ask for lol as I DO have more to ask! My other cell is a Samsung Galaxy, my carrier is T-Mobile so I’m tending towards using GSM. I do not anticipate buying anything from Google Pay so I guess I won’t be needing the NFC technology…I’m not even sure what I just said lol!!
So if I understand correctly, will I now shop for 3.0 phones? If so, which link should I use to shop for my phone that will also accommodate my anticipated Base +1GB plan?
one does not buy from Google Pay but uses it to make purchase (most fast food and retail will take Google Pay vs using a credit card or cash, It’s Google version of Apple Pay)
If you do purchase from a 3rd party (BYOD) you will need to match the exact model listed in the supported phones and will need a BYOD GSM SIM
as for where B&H, Best Buy and Amazon all carry the North American Factory unlock models that Republic uses, if looking at used there eBay, Craigslist and Swappa (Swappa is my recommendation as there are too many scam on craigslist and eBay can be hit or miss)
@PlaneT- that’s good to know you haven’t had to buy more as I really don’t know what I use but gives me some perspective. And knowing I can just add GB’s as I may need them without having to commit to it every month is refreshing, thnx PT.
@drm- Ahhh, now I know what google pay is & may very well be what I’d like to use in the future; I simply hate whipping out my credit card in public when I know there are so many ways to steal my info by, for example, taking a pic of my card with their phone…ugh. TY drm!
@davenc- Here is a question for you since it seems you know pricing comparisons pretty well…Is shopping directly from the RW site a smart move in terms of getting a fair deal? I’m thinking since they’re making it convenient for us to purchase there, there may be a price to pay for that convenience. I’m tending towards this because I won’t have to bother trying to figure out compatibility issues.
davenc- So you’re on that plan now…what happens if you went over the 1GB allotted? In other words, will I be charged extra if I go over & are there roll-over options? Also, will I have the ability to watch a youtube vid now & then without going over? Thanks for sharing
When you run out of data, you have no data connection at all to use. (Calls and Texts will still work). You will either need to find wifi to use data again, or go into the R.W app and purchse another 1GB of data for a one time instant charge of $5.
There is no roll over data or overage fees or refund for used data. Your set data allotment resets each month.
I suggest setting YouTube app to Only Stream HD video on WiFi, this will help reduce data usage. How much you stream videos is a key factor in how much data one uses per month. If you play several medium to long videos a day on mobile data and not on wifi, you may be looking at 2 to 3GB of use pretty easy. But if is just a few every week, you can get by with just 1GB fine.
