I just received Republic Wireless’s latest promotion email and couldn’t help click on the coverage link. While the areas I entered were said to have coverage (at least “talk and text”), I know this is not the case.
Several months ago, I upgraded from my Moto X to the Nexus 6P. The Moto X was great, but I needed something with a little more computation power and memory. The Nexus 6P was that device.
Or so I thought.
Several months of usage later, I found myself looking back on frustrating situations - areas where Moto X had no problem with phone service, Nexus had often left me stranded.
The latest example happened last week. My wife and I were in West Jefferson, NC looking at the beauty of dying and dead leaves. She has Verizon and had no problem uploading pictures and calling family. For everything my Nexus is, “phone” wasn’t part of the description on this trip. Two years in the same area, my Moto shined as a phone.
It’s probably a simple matter of Moto X’s Sprint service vs Nexus’s T-Mobile. Still, why should RW advertise coverage that doesn’t exist?
