Is a talk and text only plan still available?
Yes, the talk and text plan still exists. If you buy a new phone it will cost 15 bucks plus taxes and fees. Our Most Affordable Plans at $15/month, with Unlimited Talk & Text | Republic Wireless
As an added point of data, if you are on a legacy phone (the Republic version of the Moto X1, X2, G1, G3, E1 or E2) the rate is still the original $10.
