Update: I upgraded to the new Moto G and it has made all the difference in the world. Awesome service. Great call quality. Can't be the price. If you can, find a friend who has Republic so they can refer you and both of you will receive a $20 statement credit. I can't give them a 10 because the service isn't perfect but I will give them a high 8 because I am saving that much money per month and I can look over several faults for that. Being students we are on a very tight budget but still need cell phones. For basic plans my husband and I were paying just under $100 per month. We had great service but it was expensive. When we switched over to Republic Wireless we are now paying under $45/month for two lines which includes unlimited talk, text, and data. You can't beat it. The phone isn't an iphone but for someone who isn't super attached to a phone it works just fine.

Call Quality
See update! I find that the call quality can be very poor when I'm in my downstairs apartment in the middle of it. However, when I get near a window it is fine and those on the receiving end can hear me just fine.

Coverage
See update! Coverage is okay. I find when I'm in a city I'm fine but driving through small towns it can get pretty spotty.

Plan Options
I like the plan options because they are very straightforward and you don't have obnoxious sales people trying to up-sell you in a store. You also don't have a ton of surprises that you find with your bill with other large carriers. You can't beat their prices!

Customer Service
There are no physical stores which can be a downer for some but the online forums are fine and it helps to keep costs low which is always a plus.

The Moto G worked fine once it booted. That was the problem. Booting up took longer than did the old Windows 3.0 on an ancient desktop. Not useful. Cancelled right away when they also couldn't get my prior provider to transfer the old number despite my giving them all the necessary details.

Comments about Republic Wireless:

I've been a Republic Wireless customer for many years and the service itself has gotten alot better. The customer service is still slow because it's online only and most of the time you get a generic response where they didn't even read your problem. They plans are constantly changing and the prices keep going up. It's to the point now where you might as well just go with any other carrier because you aren't going to save money and they have customer service you can talk to. If you don't use any data this would be great for you but if you do, I would look for other options.

Not what it used to be

Comments about Republic Wireless:

Republic used to be cheap enough to justify the coverage issues, software issues, customer service issues, and other limitations, but their prices have gone up quite a bit. They don't offer any advantage over other budget carriers now.
