Today is a big day -- not only for republic, but any current cell phone user looking for a better way to talk, text, or use data. Today, we're proud to announce that our store is OPEN for pre-order for the dual-band Motorola DEFY XT. This means that now anyone can join the republic. And that’s why we’re here in the first place – so more people can have smartphone service at an amazingly low cost.


We’ve come a long way over the past year and we couldn’t have done it without the support and great feedback from our community full of people like you. Together, we’ve set a new bar for mobile and we’re thrilled that you’re part of this journey with us. We’ll continue to improve the republic experience, so please keep your feedback coming.


Okay, now onto the good stuff.... The DEFY XT pre-order is now open to everyone - no more waves, no waiting in line - we’re talking “open” open. You can pre-order up to four phones today, and they’ll begin shipping in mid-December.


The dual-band DEFY XT features our Hybrid Calling(TM) technology that uses Wi-Fi where it's available and cell where it’s not. Unlimited talk, text and data, all for just $19 a month. No overages, contracts, or hidden charges in small fine print. Just great phone service at the lowest monthly rate in America.


You can pre-order your dual-band DEFY XT today for $249 plus a $10 start-up fee and applicable taxes. Your start-up fee includes shipping and handling. Your first $19 monthly membership will be charged when your phone ships. Don't forget, we'll continue to offer a 30-day money back guarantee so you can join republic with no risk.


It’s that easy.  So, welcome everyone…to the new republic.

As always, please feel free to leave your questions and comments here.

If you saw our blog post about the republic store opening today for pre-orders, we wanted to make sure you had all the details. If you’re in Wave A and waiting for an upgrade or if you’re in Waves B-E and waiting to trade in your single-band for a dual-band DEFY XT, keep reading...


If you’re in one of these two groups, we plan to open special programs for you in early December. It’s important that you wait for this process rather than using the store to get a dual-band DEFY XT. We’ll offer priority shipping for upgrade and trade orders so that your order will be shipped out first before other new orders. So don’t go to the store or you won’t get priority shipping.


You can find specific instructions here about the upgrade and trade-in processes. We’ll also send further instructions via email to let you know exactly what you need to do to upgrade or trade-in once the steps are ready in early December.


One more time...what should you do if you want to upgrade or trade in? That’s right. Just kick back and wait. And thanks for being patient. The dual-band DEFY XT is worth the wait.


Welcome to the new republic.
