Republic Wireless Now Offers Moto X For $300

By 03:53 Sun, 18 Jul 2021 Comments

When the Moto X was announced, we felt that it was a small overpriced, even after a series of price cuts – to $99 on contract and to $550 off-contract. Still, Motorola managed to go 500K units in Q3.

There's a recent offer now – Republic Wireless will sell you a Moto X for $300. Note that this is not off-contract but you can acquire a contract as low as $10/month for unlimited calls and texts. That one has no data, the $25/month plan also throws in unlimited 3G data and there's a $40/month plan for unlimited 4G data.

If you're not familiar with Republic Wireless and wonder why they can acquire such cheap prices, you should know there's a trick. The Moto X will be configured to do voice calls over Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) using UMA and only falling back to Sprint's network when there's no Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) available. This is how the cheapest $5/month plan works as it doesn’t include any calls, texts or mobile data, but is accurate for the other plans too.

That sounds like a weird setup, but you're getting a 16GB Moto X for $50 less than a 16GB Nexus 5. Before you hit buy, you might want to do your due diligence and check AT&T, which offers the Moto X 16GB for $100 with a $20/month contract (300Mega Bytes (MB) data). Also, Verizon has dropped the up-front price to $50 (the offer ends on November 18).
