Republic Wireless to sell Moto X off-contract for $299, revises plans
Low-cost carrier <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294322==http://www.electronista.com/articles/11/12/22/company.originally.capped.use.of.sprints.network/" rel='nofollow'>Republic Wireless</a> has <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294323==http://republicwireless.com/moto-x" rel='nofollow'>revealed</a> it will be selling the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294324==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/01/google.takes.unique.approach/" rel='nofollow'>Motorola Moto X</a> on its network for $299. While this is more than the $200 <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294325==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/27/web.only.launch.for.verizon.moto.x.stock.for.store s.in.coming.weeks/" rel='nofollow'>usually charged</a> by carriers for the smartphone, with <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294326==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/15/moto.x.flagship.available.for.100.on.contract/" rel='nofollow'>Sprint</a> offering it for just $100, the Republic Wireless model differs as it is offering it without requiring customers to sign up for a two-year contract. <br />
<br />
The $299 price tag for the Moto X is also far below the unsubsidized version of the device, costing around $600, though <em>Phone Scoop</em> <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294320==http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/article.php?a=12938" rel='nofollow'>reports</a> that Republic hasn't yet revealed when it will be selling the phone. Republic also say that the Moto X will play nicely with the VoIP aspects of its service, something which it relies on for its cheap tariffs. <br />
<br />
At the same time, Republic announced it will be revising its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294321==http://www.electronista.com/articles/11/11/08/republic.wireless.beta.live.with.lg.optimus.phone/" rel='nofollow'>service plans</a> in November. One plan, allowing unlimited talk and text over Wi-Fi will cost $5 per month, but without cellular access. A second plan, at $10 per month, provides unlimited talk and text over Sprint's network, but not data. A third adds unlimited 3D cellular access for $25 per month, while a fourth providing unlimited talk, text, and data over 4G will cost $40 per month.
