Back to school is nearly here (or here for some of you!) and one of the items on parents shopping lists for back to school are cell phones and plans for the kids that don’t break the bank. Whether your kiddo is in need of a phone for texting and calling about practices and pickups or you’re just looking to get your teen a new (and cheaper!) plan I’ve got just the thing-Republic Wireless.
As a mom of 4 (all of whom have cell phones) having a data plan and phones that don’t break the bank is key. Honestly, they aren’t just for the kids they’re also for parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents, or anyone who wants to save on their cell bill!
Republic Wireless sent me a sleek new Moto G5 Plus to test out on the go this summer and I took it everywhere. From Pokemon Go playing to getting directions (a must since we moved to a new city) or checking emails to entertaining kids in waiting rooms it kept up with it all.
We spent a lot of time having friends and family visits in between two foot surgeries my daughter had to have and I took the phone with me everywhere. Among other things we visited the Sculpture Garden at the Walker Art Center when we had guests in from out of town and I had my phone out while I was hunting down records at a local record store (my new obsession!).
Why choose Republic Wireless:
Cost: Listen, I love paying for quality, but when it comes to cell service there’s no reason to pay a fortune when Republic Wireless can save you money. My oldest son uses Republic Wireless monthly because it fits his budget and works perfectly. That’s why I can recommend Republic Wireless-it’s not just a month of testing it out, but years of daily use by my 19 year old that tells me it’s the best option.
Don’t just take our word though. Republic Wireless offers the best basic plan according to MONEY Magazine, is a top pre-paid carrier choice by Consumer Reports, and rated for excellence in user satisfaction by PC Magazine.
A few key cost savings that make Republic Wireless stand out:
- No contracts
- No hidden fees
- Monthly plans starting at $15
- Unlimited talk and text
Service: I know-you’re thinking it must be cheaper because the service stinks, but it’s actually the opposite! The service works no matter where we go or what we do. The way Republic Wireless is different is it’s a Wi-Fi first cell plan. That means that it will connect to Wi-Fi first when possible and seamlessly connects to nationwide 4G LTE cellular network whenever needed. This goes back to our first reason-cost. Republic Wireless shares that using Wi-Fi first saves customer tens of millions of dollars every year!
A few notes about service:
- Wi-Fi first
- connects to 4G LTE network nationwide
Phones: Republic Wireless has super affordable Android phones if you don’t have one yet. If you need a new phone they have options for every budget and to suit your needs from simple to the latest models. The phone I was sent, the Moto g5 Plus, is an amazing newer model, but you could go simple and spend as little as $99.
- Can bring your own phone (check the list of approved models on their website)
- No contracts, so you own the phone
- Can port your number to a new phone

Recommendations: If you’re in the market for new service for younger kids I recommend the $15/month plan that is only for WiFi, but still gives them unlimited talk, text, and WiFi data. Bring your own phone or check out the Moto E4 as a good starter option. For teens and up I recommend starting at the $20/ month plan that gives you 1 GB data and unlimited talk, text, and WiFi data. You can stretch that 1 GB further than you think! I really loved the Moto g5 Plus, so if you’re in the market for a phone I highly recommend it.
