Starting last month I began reporting how much we’re paying for my wife’s cell phone bill. I’ll try to plan on continuing this, as well as posting my results with Google’s Project Fi starting with my next bill.
That being said, our February payment to Republic Wireless was $17.53. That includes unlimited calling and texting, 512 MB of data, and a $2.14 credit for the data she didn’t use the month before.
If you’re looking for inexpensive phone service and you’re around WiFi most of the time, check out Republic Wireless. You will have to buy your phone (they’re working on a financing option), but they do have some affordable options available. There is no contract and you’ve got 30 days to try the service and get a full refund on the phone if it’s not for you.
If you’ve used Republic or have any questions, let me know if the comments.
