The Moto X is now available through prepaid carrier Republic Wireless in the U.S. The smartphone has been in the news since the last couple of days, mostly with regards to the Moto Maker site being available on all major carriers in the U.S. Republic Wireless is offering the smartphone for $299 without a contract, which is quite reasonable.
The usage plans are pretty reasonable too and start from as low as $5 a month. The carrier can keep the pricing down as it relies heavily on its Wi-Fi network to make calls or send texts, but while users are not connected to a Wi-Fi network, calls and texts are sent by accessing Sprint’s cellular network. The $5 plan is pretty basic and it doesn’t offer anything but Wi-Fi, so it’s probably not for everybody. The most expensive plan at $40 comes with 4G data along with sufficient voice minutes and texts. While the pricing is substantially cheaper compared to other carriers, one must remember that Republic Wireless doesn’t rely on its cellular networks, which is why it is able to offer the devices and plans this cheap. So if you’re willing to check out the smartphone, head over to the link below. The smartphone will be shipped in 5-7 business days.
