Republic Wireless launching $19 unlimited data, voice, texting service Republic Wireless has announced it will launch a cellular and VoIP service next week that promises unlimited 3G data, texting and voice for just $19 a month.
The only real catch is you will need a special Android handset from the vendor.

Calls and texts can be sent over Wi-Fi or over cell service.

The concept of Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) is certainly not new, but it has also never been this cheap.

In order to supply the service, Republic will purchase wholesale minutes from third-party carriers like Sprint or T-Mobile. The company's own VoIP service handles the rest.

i've never heard of that carrier but if they use sprint i wonder if it would be good to use them over virgin mobile since it would be cheaper. i see virgin's lowest plan is now 35 dollars/mo for 300 min and unlim data and messaging. It use to be 25 not too long ago.
