May 2017 – Republic Wireless Bill

The May payment to Republic Wireless was $-1.48. This is our last month using Republic Wireless for our primary phones. We’ll be keeping one line for home phone use.

Wireless Breakdown

  • WiFi Only Phone – $5
  • Taxes – $1.01
  • Refund for unused service – ($7.49)
  • Total – ($1.48)

My wife and I have transitioned from Republic Wireless to Total Wireless and are on a shared 8GB plan for $57/month. I really liked RW and their customer service. I noticed recently that they now offer chat support, which is a nice improvement. However, when we did the calculations, it works out better for us to get the extra data at a fixed price each month.

We changed our WiFi only phone to my wife’s old Moto X and sell the Moto G3 through Swappa. I’m continuing to use my Nexus 5X and my wife is using the Moto G5 Plus (which is really a nice phone for the price).

This will be the last month that I post a Republic bill. All of the future bills should be $6.01. Republic definitely ranks up toward the top of my list of inexpensive phone services. Others that rank up there include Project Fi, Ting, Cricket, and Total. Each one works well for a different type of user.

If you’ve used Republic or have any questions, let me know in the comments.
