Republic Wireless Motorola E Giveaway! (x2)

What up what up frugal gangsters! My new favorite wireless carrier just released their latest (cheap-as-hell) smart phone, and because they think budgets are sexy too they’re shipping me two to give away to y’all today :) Along with 3 months of free service!

(How’s that for frugal?)

I know I’ve been mentioning Republic Wireless a lot over the months, but that really is only because I feel like I’ve stumbled across a gem here and I want to make sure y’all know about them too. If you’re happy with your own carrier and/or are annoyed with these updates, here are two other giveaways I’m running on my other sites you may find more suitable ;)

  1. A brand new 3/4 oz Silver Canadian Grey Wolf coin
  2. A kick-ass Tuft & Needle mattress

Or, better yet, try and win one of these for a friend or loved one! So *they* can try and convince you to move over after they rave about it, haha… j/k. (kind of)

Here’s a reminder of why I’m obsessed w/ Republic Wireless

The only downsides are you’d have to break our contract you’re currently with to switch (possibly costing you money) and you have to buy the phone outright from Republic Wireless. Which makes their latest phone we’re giving away today even better as it’s only $99!

(Fyi, I have noticed a few dropped calls here and there and a little wonky connection at times (it runs mainly over wifi and the Sprint network) but we’re two months in so far and I don’t plan on switching back. It’s not for everyone, but I’m done giving away an extra $100+ to other carriers for nothing.)

Here are some facts on the new Moto E

moto e republic wireless

  • It’s only $99
  • It’s a smartphone.
  • Has 3G
  • 4GB Internal Memory
  • Up to 32GB of expandable memory with micro SD card
  • Android™ KitKat® 4.4.4
  • 5MP Fixed Focus Camera
  • 4.3″ Edge-to-Edge HD Display

I’m not a techie so can’t add much more than that (and I haven’t personally tested this one out), but here’s a 2 min video on it that shares more if you’re interested. To me most smartphones do the same stuff: call, email, apps, etc ;) Here’s their website with more info too: Moto E

 

Like it? Want to own it?

    I’d like to give the smartphone to my nanny to appreciate everything she has done to my kids. She really deserves this for her hard work and dedication to job. This simple thing is much appreciated. :D

    I don’t need one, but just wanted to chime in. We had at before switching go RW and we had dropped calls on their service too! The times I do have the most issues is when I have poor cell service, but again, this is true for any provider.

    I switched to republic and it works great for me. Little issues here and there but i had issues with AT&T. I think we just notice it more with republic because we are still evaluating it.

    I’d probably keep the phone just in case i break the one i currently have :)

    I’d like to enter the giveaway! I’d keep the phone for myself. I’ve never had a smartphone, but I’ve read a lot about republic wireless. I’ve been considering trying them out next year. I’m not sure how great the sprint network is near me, but it would be an improvement from what I have now. No cell phone! Mine was stolen in July and I still haven’t replaced it. Just kind of enjoying not having the monthly bill and waiting until I move into a better living situation before I pick up another contract.

    Because its a family forum, I will only say that Sprint can bite it. Republic wireless looks to be a good deal and it definitely fits the budget. I use Walmart’s Straight Talk. Same thing; you have to buy the phone, some cheap some expensive and then its $45 a month, no contract, 3g data per month etc. In our area it uses Verizon towers which has not let us down.
    That’s my 2 bits.

      Walmart straight talk doesn’t offer the WiFi functionality that RW does. You’d have to do a lot of VoIP setup to even get close to the same level, but you can’t mimic the seemless call handovers from WiFi to 3g.

    I know you said it’s been pretty good with the exception of a few glitches here and there. I’m curious how service is around the country since I tour and travel so much for work. I want to say I’m giving it to myself, but I don’t know if I’m ready to take the leap, haha.

    1. David October 22, 2014 at 5:24 PM

      I’ve had Republic for a year and have traveled quite a bit and it works great wherever there is sprint service (or where sprint is bad enough that it switches over to verizon). I even used it out of country in resorts where it could connect to free wifi and everything worked just like I was sitting at home. Best part – since it works on wifi, it WORKS in my home, unlike every cell provider I’ve ever had.

  8. Hannah October 22, 2014 at 7:56 AM

    I would give the phone to my husband because his service is really spotty in our house, and we have super strong Wi-Fi, so the issue might get resolved by voip. Also, he will keep the same phone until 2025 unless I force him to change, so what better way than winning a phone :)

    I’d give my phone to my mommy. My dad, my brothers, sister-in-law’s all have iphones and cool gadgets but my mommy doesn’t have anything. She just wants a phone to call HER mommy. I want the phone because my family’s phone bill in total is about $400. It’s a big burden to my dad and I want my own so I can cancel the iphone contract and save my dad a few bucks. Republic Wireless honestly sounded like heaven because of their cheap rates — this current phone bill is a pain!

Honestly, if I were picked I think I’d use it for a giveaway on my blog. I’m very new yet and I need more people to find me because I think I could share a lot with them (maybe even a phone, te he!)

    I have been on the fence about Republic Wireless. I would love to choppy $160 cellphone bill down. I have 3 lines right now because my kids are teens. I have recommended it to family members who have difficulty affording their phones because the plan is more affordable and the upfront payment for the phone is a one time investment. Hope I win! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

    Been with Republic for over a year now …. awesome company and the one time I emailed for help I got a nice reply within a hour. Can’t beat their plans. Republic is just a brand – the vast majority of the no contract players run on Sprint network – virgin, Straight Talk, Boost, Ting …all Sprint because Sprint makes a load of money leasing network capacity. A few run on T-Mobile. Personally I love WiFi …9 times out of 10 better connection than cellular.

    I’ve been with RW since January, but my fiancé hasn’t switched yet, and we were planning on buying the Moto E for him anyway! He’s paying $40/month for a “dumb phone” so it makes sense to get more out of the phone for a little less a month. RW has been okay for the most part – a few hiccups, but better than paying $92/month with Verizon.

    I would give it to my boyfriend who still pays way too much for cell phone service! He keeps saying he is going to try one of the cheaper options but hasn’t pulled the trigger yet. I switched to Tracfone and it works great for me. I use about $20 worth of talk/text/data a month and had to pay $100 upfront for the smartphone. It has already paid for itself and now I don’t have a monthly cell phone bill….pay as you go baby!

  51. Zee @ Work To Not Work October 22, 2014 at 11:05 AM

    So I normally never enter these give away posts since many times they are for things that I don’t really need or want (I have a pretty solid mattress at the moment). But I would actually use this phone for myself. I’m personally pretty proud that I’ve never had a smart phone ever, and people always comment on my phone whenever I happen to pull it out in public, like it’s some relic of the cold war. I always brag about it’s cool features that their smart phones don’t have like a “full slide out keyboard with buttons that don’t always register”

    I think that switching phones might be a good experiment, or possibly a very bad one since I might not be able to go back to a regular one after. But perhaps it’s time to move to the 21st century. I was about 5 years late to the “we all have cell phones” party, so perhaps it’s about time I finally showed up to the “I have a smart phone” party.

  52. Kiya October 22, 2014 at 11:15 AM

    I would give it to my son for his 16th birthday coming up. I don’t have much use for cell phones (I have a REALLY old flip-phone from TracFone that I use for emergencies, etc.)

    My son is a good kid and although he has a better phone than I do, it’s still an old TracFone, and he’d like something a bit cooler. Cell phones are not a priority in my budget, and even though the RW service is affordable, the phone itself isn’t.

    So if I won it, I’d give it to him. If I don’t win, he can start saving up to buy one on his own! :)

    I wouldn’t hesitate to give the phone to my neighbor, an elderly woman who takes care of her 10 year old grandson and disabled brother. She doesn’t have a cell phone and I know it would make a positive impact in her life.

    Got my daughter a Moto G from Republic Wireless two weeks ago. Got her the $10 plan. Grounded her from the phone for sneaking it to bed, and took the phone with me to work to check it out. Nice little phone, very capable unit.

    Now that my wife’s iPhone is starting to poop out (we both own an anceint iPhone 4) she’s next on the list for an upgrade.

    I’d love a free one, but Republic Wireless is so affordable, it doesn’t even break my heart if I have to buy it.

    Before RW: Two iPhone4 , AT&T dataplan, ~100 month
    After RW (our eventual goal): Three moto G/E, 2x$25 plans, 1x$10 plan = 65 month

    One more phone for 25 dollars less per month. What’s not to love about that?

    I’d keep it for myself and, depending upon how well the service works, buy another one for my daughter later. I had an iPhone with Sprint service but just couldn’t afford the bill anymore so I switched to a pay-as-you-go plan with a cheap slider phone straight out of 2005. Well now that we’ve moved halfway across the country, the service on my cheapo phone sucks. So I’ve been shopping around for something new. I miss having a smartphone and my daughter is reaching that age where she wants her own phone, but being able to afford two smartphones on my budget (a single mom and freelance writer) is practically impossible. Republic seems do-able.

I could write a book with all that has happened to heidi and her daughter but you probably wouldn’t believe me with as bad as it is. She constantly donating to abused women shelters, taking care of less fortunate out of her own pocket or out of her business so I would love for something good to happen for her. Just I the last year alone she has had roughly $75,000 in medical bills between her and her daughter. Please give it so someone who really could use it. Her total cell bill was around $250 for all 3 phone lines on alltel.

After a few weeks with my new phone all fears were relieved. I can’t express enough how great republic wireless is! It’s great on my broke college student budget, I always have service, I don’t have to worry about overages, my bill is the same price every month, I can finally understand the breakdown of charges and feel confident I am not being ripped off and intimidated by impossible to read bills, the list goes on! Love the phone love the service LOVE the price. I am begging my family to leave at&t now that their contracts are up so if I won I would give the phone to my wonderful but paying too much for her phone mother!

    I’ve been with RW for a while and have the moto x. I love it and the customer service is better then I’ve ever experienced with other companies. I have a daughter who is a single mom in college who could really use a phone with a low payment plan. I would give the phone to her.

    I would love to pass along a cool, new phone bundled with Republics sweet service to my brother. He got into a crappy, low wage job coming out of the Army and he could use a little pick me up right about now! The service has got to be cheaper than what he has with ATT and the phone is definitely an upgrade over his shattered iPhone he can’t afford to replace.

    I would keep the phone for myself. I have been limping along a Nexus 4 on Straight Talk. (battery is shot, screen is broke, and camera stopped working). I just haven’t been able to justify spending the money on a new phone right now. I have been fascinated by Republic since I read about them, and would love to give them a shot.

    I would give the phone to myself! I have the 1st generation of smart phone offered by Republic Wireless and it has issues. It does not have enough internal space in addition to it not being able to send or receive SMS texts (pictures). It also does not perform well with calling on the wireless network.

    I would love to win one or two of these great phones phones. I want to give one to my 88 year old Mother, so i can keep in touch with her and she can with me as well on the cheap.
    The 2nd one i want to give to my daughter, she is a single Mom and unemployed right now due to injury and she needs to save every penny that she can just to take care of her daughter.
    Both of them are worthy recipients of owning a great phone and a fantastic phone service such as Republic Wireless.
    Thank you so much for this opportunity….

He’s been working hard to change that and has been trying to pinch pennies to get himself out of debt, by doing things like canceling cable tv and not going out to eat. He currently has my old Defy XT from Republic Wireless, a tolerable but buggy old phone. He’s always doing nice things for me and I’d love to give him a better phone and help him save even more money in the process.

    I have had a Moto X from about launch with them.
    The service is great. We love the savings.
    With the plan of one phone at $25 and two at $10 we will pay less for all three of us than almost any other carrier for one person.
    We now need to get my daughter a Moto E.
    This would be a great save on our budget.

I think what’s changed her mind about cellphones was my getting a Republic Wireless phone. We had Verizon for a long time, then T-Mobile. When I heard about RW I couldn’t wait to sign up, but had to wait for the “mid-grade” phone (hey, I’m cheap….errr, I mean frugal). She never used any of my old phones, but now borrows my phone when she leaves the house (I work from home) and grabs it a lot at home just to text with our son. So, I think her opinion is changing. All that said, I know there’s no way we can (or that she would) shell out $100 for a new phone for her. But, a free phone? That we could afford!!

Just a year ago she retired and went through a horrible break up with her bf who was trying to stalk her so she got a restraining order on her. Also, she was supposed to move back into her old house that she was renting and the tenant extended their stay without paying for over 3 months. She finally moved into her place after having to evict her tenant and now to top it all off she is having issues with her phone. This woman desperately needs a new phone and a new service. She deserves it!

    I’ve been using Republic Wireless service personally for about a year and it’s saved me well over $50 a month. My friends are constantly drooling when I tell them that I pay $28 a month for unlimited everything. I’ve tried to tug the iphone away from my wife and convince her that she doesn’t need to be tied to AT&T any longer. A free RW phone would convince her and help us save another $30 a month which we could put toward starting our kids college fund.

    I looooooove Republic Wireless! We switched from iPhones and Verizon a year ago, and have been loving the bill ever since! The phone would go to my son, who is just on the verge of needing a phone. Glad to see you spotlight that amazing company.

    If I won the Republic Wireless MotoE, I would give it to my son. He has had a phone through Metro for a few years. But, not only does it cost more…once he started high school this year he gets ZERO reception on that side of the campus. If he walks to the Middle School area or the parking lot, his phone starts pushing through his missed texts and calls….Hours! Later! :( Not very convenient for me when I need to get a message to him.
    Sprint’s 3G towers might not have the best reception for the area code my son goes to school in, but there is at least 1 Bar at all times, and texts/calls can be received and made.

    Thanks!

My husband, older daughter and I are already on republic and are saving so much overt he family plan we used to have. We have occasional bad service/dropped calls but we did with AT&T, too. And when my older daughter broke her defy republic sold us a Moto G for the same price as a refurb Defy replacement. The customer service has been phenomenal. I never want to go back to a contract again.

With a republic wireless phone she would be able to pay it and I wouldn’t have to worry about her constantly or wonder what she is doing. My mother cannot provide the phone bill for my younger sister because she is disabled with kidney failure. I would love to do this for my lil sister!!

    I’ve never owned a smartphone.
    To message friends, I use (clunky) texting applications on my old iPod. Unfortunately, over the past few months, it’s been having problems, and the ‘fix’ is a replacement of a many years old device. I go to a school where 90% of the students use iPhones, with the other 10% using high end Android devices. It’s always a little embarrassing when someone asks for my number and I ask them to send something to my email instead. With a phone, I’ll be able to do so much. I’ve always wanted to develop applications for Android based devices, but I’ve never had one to test with. I think I’ll use this phone to its fullest, as both a consumer device and a tool for education.

    I have been with RW for nearly 2 years- saw a cnet story about it. Can’t beat the low cost plan and most of our use is in wifi areas so we are way below any data ceiling. I have gotten the other phones for my wife and this year added my 13 year old. She has the $10 plan so she can talk or text to get a hold of us anytime but can only surf or play when she is home on the wifi- great deal for kids. I would keep this one for myself because i have a work phone and can”t get apps for it or surf the net easily.

    I want a Republic Wireless phone or our family. I am home part time with our two small kids and the only way we can have me remain home as much as I am is to drastically cut our budget. So far, we have cut our cable and gone to streaming. The next is to cut our current cell phone carrier for a much more affordable plan through Republic. Those two changes alone saves our family over $200/month. Of course, my husband driving a car with almost 400K miles isn’t hurting either! :)

We still have flip-phones because I can’t justify the budget expenditure for smart-phone purchase and service. We already have to pay for data that we don’t not use to get a cheaper plan with Verizon- makes no sense to save money by paying for a product we do not use, but Verizon does not negotiate or speak common sense. I have been following Republic Wireless for some time (and waiting for the Moto-E) trying to convince myself that they are not “too good to be true”.

    I have been on Republic Wireless since June and it has been great. I was on Boost Mobile (which is on Sprint towers) and service with spotty, but with Republic and the roaming I have had no problems. If I won the phone, I would give it to my daughter. She would really like a smart phone and has been waiting to save up the money.

    I would like to give a Moto E to my parents to replace their old flip-phone with a great Republic Wireless plan. With what they need, they could easily get by on RW’s $10/month plan and that would be a huge step up over what they have now in terms of features and cost! For retirees on a fixed income, every little bit of savings helps!

    I have the Moto G with Republic, and have been very happy with the phone and the service. I really do think it is the best value in cell and wireless phone service. The Motos are the very best of the less expensive smartphones. I would give the phones to my 2 teenage stepsons who are immigrating to the U.S. this month. They are coming to work and study, and will need quality, affordable phones and service.

Been a RW customer for some time now, have 3 phones (Moto X and two Moto G), could not be happier. Was soo glad when I gave Sprint and Verizon the boot. Absolutely cannot beat the rates, all of my 3 phones now costing me 50$ per month (crazy wife insists on 3G, although she spends most of her time at home anyhow). I have been trying to get this setup for many years (smart phone with no data plan, don’t need it) glad RW got my back. Hope these guys make it big and really shake up the industry.

So far, we have budgeted enough to get a new house and still be able to save money each month to do the requisite improvements and maintenance. She has a Republic phone but it is the original Defy XT. No offense but that thing is a hunk of shit! Somehow or another we budgeted enough for me to get the Moto X. I love it and I love Republics service. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan and coverage has never been an issue. She needs a new phone and she would never do it for herself. She is the quintessential selfless mom. Literally, it would be the last phone she would ever need. Thank you for your time.

    Would keep it for myself. Have been long term unemployed and can’t afford to keep the cellphone that I have in use. It also has a cracked screen and needs to be replaced, but no money to fix/replace the phone.

    I would like to give one to my Dad because he uses a prepaid phone right now and thinks he is saving money while he is spending more and getting less. This promotion would be a perfect opportunity to show him that you can truly have more for less in today’s day and age.

    I would keep it myself–i don’t currently have a phone, and have been trying to decide which RP
    phone to get. for free, this would settle it.

    I would give it to my wife. Because she rocks. And Motorola makes great phones.
