Republic Wireless — a great idea that’s not quite there yet

Republic Wireless

Republic Wireless has been making waves the past couple of days with their new spin on the way a carrier works.  The plan is pure genius:

  • Buy an LG Optimus One and the first month’s service for $199
  • Enter all the Wifi AP information for where you live, work, and play
  • Get unlimited voice, texts, and data for $19 a month

What’s not to love, right?  On paper it seems the perfect solution, and people like myself who whine talk all the time about carrier “reform” here in the states should be in heaven.  And it’s Android, so that’s double the kickass factor.  But chances are, if you’re a member of Android Central, it’s not going to work for you.  read more
