Incredible deal! The nation’s best cell phone company is offering 6 months free phone service for free! You have to act by Monday the 22nd though. Here is what you need to know to get this great deal.
Who is Republic Wireless?
Republic Wireless is a cell phone operator that offers the best deals on cell phone plans in the United States. The reason RW is able to offer such great rates is because their phones work a little differently. When you aren’t connected to WIFI your RW phone works just like any other cell phone. When you are connected to WIFI your phone makes and receives calls and texts over your WIFI connection rather than a cellular connection.
I myself am on the $20/ month plan which gives me unlimited calls and texts and 1 GB of data, which has always been plenty for me. The great thing is if I don’t use all my data (I have never used all my data) you get a refund at the end of the month in the form of a credit toward’s next months service. If you do use all your data, it is easy to buy more at a reasonable price.
In terms of service my wife and I have been on RW for years and we love it. Early generations of WIFI calling were a little spotty, but for years now RW has gotten the WIFI calling thing mastered and it works great.
One of the reasons I love WIFI calling is it works in places where no other cell phone works. In a rural area with no cell phone service? If you have WIFI you have phone service. Traveling internationally? If you have WIFI you have phone service with no extra fees.
How to get 6 months free
This deal is only for new lines. If you already have a line with RW (and I know a lot of ABC readers do) you are out of luck unless you need an additional line. You have to follow a couple of steps.
- Buy a free sim card from RW by Monday May 22nd. The card is free but there is a small charge for shipping.
- You have to pay for the 1st month. After the 1st month the next 6 months are free!
- You have to get your own phone. More on that later.
- You have until June 6 to to put your sim card into your phone and activate the service.
- When your 6 months are up you are under no further obligations. There are no contracts. But if you’re the kind of person that likes great phone service and low prices your probably going to want to stick with RW.
