4 Questions to Ask Before you Sign up for a New Phone Contract
Major carriers like to complicate their contracts knowing most consumers won’t know a good plan from a bad one.
If you’ve ever found yourself scratching your head at the complexity of a cell phone plan, you’re not alone. When every course of action seems to contain fine print, limitations, and hidden fees, how do you even begin to compare your options? Before you sign up, ask yourself these 4 questions about your cellular contract to ensure you’re getting the best deal for your money:
1. Will I get coverage in my area?
Consistent cellular coverage is critical when choosing your cell provider but with every carrier claiming coverage superiority, how do you know who’s telling the truth? Don’t get locked into a provider who doesn’t give you the best coverage for your money. Republic Wireless utilizes two of the largest nationwide networks along with WiFi so you can stay confident in your coverage.
Outside of our coverage range? Don’t fret! In addition to our major networks, we provide FREE voice roaming which allows you to make and receive calls outside of Republic’s cellular range using our numerous roaming partners that span across the country.
2. Do I really need unlimited data?
The truth is, probably not. It’s likely you aren’t using as much cell data as the big guys want you to believe, so why pay a premium for it? The average U.S. wireless customer consumes 1.8 GB of cellular data every month. Utilize WiFi to further reduce data usage and try Republic Wireless’ $20/mo plan with 1 GB of cellular data, unlimited talk, text, and WiFi. With plans starting at $15/mo, Republic Wireless provides members with affordable data options and the flexibility to change your plan at any time. All of our plans come equipped with unlimited talk, text, and WiFi and (unlike other major carriers) we don’t charge extra to send or receive pictures and videos through MMS messaging.

3. Can I handle the commitment of a cellular contract?
In a world where change is inevitable, commitment can be scary. If the words “early termination fee” make you cringe, you may want to think twice about signing that contract. Many cell carriers subsidize the prices of their phones to lock you into a 2 year contract with early termination fees costing up to $350!
Let Republic put the power back in YOUR hands. Don’t get penalized for changing your mind! With Republic Wireless’ no-contract commitment, you can cancel or change your plan at any time, free of charge.
4. Will I be a priority?
We’ve all been there: in need of basic help but ultimately sitting on hold for what seems like an eternity, only to speak to a representative who appears more clueless than you are. When dealing with major carriers, it’s easy to feel like a number in their system.
