The average smartphone owner pays about $100 a month for service. As a family of 8, that would equal my morgage payment each month. I don't know about you, but that is not possible for our budget.
Recently, I have been finding that it's getting harder to keep tabs on my 13 year old twin daughters as they get more involved with friends and school activities. I have been researching affordable cell phone options for them but even prepaid plans don't seem feasible with the amount of use for a teenager (or two!).
I recently learned about Republic Wireless and it seems to be a great choice for our needs. For $19 a month, you can get unlimited talking, texting and surfing, without a contract, limits or overages.
How can they offer such inexpensive service when others are so expensive? It's simple. Republic Wireless uses Hybrid Wi-Fi Calling. The beauty of Hybrid Calling is that it lets you harness the power of Wi-Fi for calls, texts and data while also having full cellular capabilities. The service comes with a 30 day money back guarentee.
But what about an actually phone? Republic Wireless offers the Motorola DEFY™ XT Smartphone for a low price of $199. This dustproof, water and scratch resistant phone features a 3.7 inch Corning® Gorilla® glass display, front-facing VGA Webcam, rear-facing camera with auto focus/LED Flash, 4x digital zoom and an Android operating system with wi-fi and Sprint® 3G Coverage with dual-band reception. You can stay connected with over 450,000 Apps through Google Play.
This is a great first smart phone for my daughters. I can get in touch with them whenever I need to without breaking the bank! In turn, they feel a bit more independant and responsible. It's a win-win!
