I switched to Republic Wireless from AT&T back in January, and laid out a hefty sum to do so ($300 each for two no-contract Moto X phones) but now, in late July, I’ve already broken even.
I was spending $140 per month on two phones with AT&T. One of those was not even a smart phone.
I am currently spending on average $40 per month on Republic wireless: I’m on the $25 plan for two phones, and people keep using my referral link that gets them (and me) $20 off of service. (Interested? it’s http://benlikes.us/republic )
So, even with dropping $600 on the top-end phones, I’m already making money from switching to Republic.
When I initially switched I was having some mild annoyances and dropped calls. That hasn’t happened in the last few months (I suspect the Android Kit Kat firmware update fixed most of the issues.)
If you are interested in joining the party, I’d appreciate you using my referral link, and saving us both some coin! Also, you no longer have to drop $300 on your phone to switch, because they released the capable Moto G as a $150 alternative.
To be clear, I’d still go with the Moto X if I were switching today: it’s worth an extra one-time fee for a better phone for me. But as a bargain-basement smartphone, the Moto G is nothing to slouch about.
