What a week huh? Lots of good news for all of us! Let's take a look and see what all this good news is about:
New pricing option: On Tuesday, February 19, we started offering a new pricing option. Some folks were asking for a lower upfront cost for the phone. We agreed, so you can choose to save now with $99 for our Motorola DEFY XT and $29/month or you can save later with $249 for our Motorola DEFY XT and $19/month. Both options will give you the same unlimited data, talk, and text. This new option is great for existing members that wish to add a line or new members that don't want to pay full price for their smartphone. Have questions? Check out our New Pricing FAQ.
USA Today article: Late Tuesday night, Edward C. Baig from USA Today posted an online article reviewing Republic Wireless. One of the words that stood out in this article is "disruptive." That's exactly what we're doing folks. We're here to disrupt the status quo and bring everybody the opportunity of wireless freedom. We've also received follow up coverage from a variety of other technology and consumer focused press and we're excited to spread the Republic Wireless news in markets nationwide.
SMS over Wi-Fi: At the end of last week, we had to route text messages over cellular due to an issue with a non-responsive system service. Our engineers identified the issue as quickly as possible and as of yesterday morning, SMS over Wi-Fi is back up and running. If you're still experiencing any issues with SMS over Wi-Fi, please feel free to reach out to our Republic Help team.
Thanks for reading and we'll be keeping the good news coming so stay tuned!
