    I decided to try out the Republic wireless Beta program.

    I ordered the phone and will have it day after tomorrow.
    Supposedly for 19.95 per month you get unlimited data, unlimited talk and unlimited text.
    The software in the phone prioritizes wifi operation so that anytime wifi is available it uses wifi rather than cellular system. When no wifi is available it uses the sprint cell system.
    This should be interesting, if it works it would save me one hell of a bunch of money but I am very skeptical.

    After two months I have to say it is a good company with good service with a less than desirable but fully tolerable phone. I recommend it to some but maybe not yet to truckers or bussiness people that travel a lot because I have heard of problems .
    The cheezy phone problem is solved in November when they start shipping the Motorola Moto X which has outstanding reviews and is rumored to be the reason why Google bought Motorola..
    Here is a link for those who would like to sign up for notification of when the Moto X is available to ship. DO NOT SIGN UP UNTIL MOTO X IS AVAILABLE!

    The phone is more expensive and so is the service.

    What happens if you are in a Wi-Fi area that requires a password? Will your phone still ring? Can you use the phone?

    Whenever wifi is unavailable, password protected or the signal is too weak it uses the sprint system. It is more or less an honor system asking you to use wifi whenever possible.
    It works well for that woman and I, we average 65% wifi on our usage. For all users the average is normaly around 40% wifi.
