You’re welcome. I’m glad that you’ve been researching your options because that education of weighing out pros and cons of a service can really save you money that you can put towards other things.
I spend around $23.50/mo including tax for unlimited talk and text and 1gb of cellular data from Republic Wireless. If I was switching from a $60/mo Verizon bill, my savings would be $36.50/mo, $438/year, or $876 in two years. To me personally, that’s significant savings.
Plus, I like being part of the RW community.

I personally like the plan I’m on, which is the best for me (the 1gb cellular data plan) . I have a variety of phones I can choose from, and surprisingly I rarely exceed 1gb of cellular data. I personally would recommend getting a phone that is CDMA & GSM compatible from the Republic Wireless store. (If you want to buy from another place, please read this: How to Find a Compatible Unlocked Phone. It is my understanding that you get a phone shipped to you with GSM service if you buy it from Republic Wireless. However, I believe if you want to try out the CDMA service from RW instead of GSM, you’ll have that option without having to buy another phone.
