Hello @jeffreyt.zmtmgs. I’m not sure if you have read this thread or a summary of this thread, but if you do, you can at least read the reasons from Republic Wireless staff why the My Choice Plan is priced as it is. If you’re pressed for time, you might be able to at least read just this link and this link to read their main points in this thread without having to read a lot of non-staff posts.
I think this comment acknowledges that the my choice plan offers more than just $5/gb. When RW’s new plan was the refund plan, people didn’t have so many phone options as they do now. RW is continually adding new phones that people can use on their network because of their switch to the my choice plan.
The refund plan still does exist for those who want to use it as well.
I’m a 3 year customer of RW. I remember (and have liked) the refund plans, but I also like the improvements I’ve experienced with the my choice plans, and I want to encourage RW to keep on providing great service for their customers!
I wish I could have said that I was spending only $35/mo for service back in the day in 2011 when I was spending over $100/mo for my Verizon phone service + iPhone 4 payment in a 2 year binding contract.
I can’t change my past, but I have been happy for my lower cellphone costs with RW combined with the value that they offer.
