Better Late Than Never: Republic Wireless Announces Moto G Available in April and KitKat Rolling Out to Moto X Soon

Remember Republic Wireless? The no-contract MVNO that features ‘Hybrid Calling’ technology that uses a mix-up of WiFi and cell signal designed to keep your minutes and bill low. Last November, the carrier announced that the Moto X would be coming to their network and today the Moto G joins it as well.

Starting April 14, the Moto G will join the Republic Wireless lineup of devices for only $149. Republic’s no-contract plans start as low as $5 per month, so if you are looking for the cheapest device and service out there, this might be right up your alley. When the Moto G launches it will be running the latest version of Android, KitKat 4.4.2.

In another announcement today, Republic let everyone know that the Moto X has not been left out in the cold. Since the Moto G will launch with 4.4.2, Republic announced that the Moto X would soon be receiving the update to that version as well. Republic didn’t offer a specific date for when users can expect the upgrade, but they are working on it.

      ive owned the s4 and moto x. the s4 is better in every way except for the touchless controls

      • JoshGroff

        I’m not a fan of touchwiz, but that’s still pretty hard to argue. Throw on a trimmed down rom with only the essential features and a custom launcher, and that pretty much gets rid of the only negative point on the S4.

    I will have to be honest….. this really does start looking like a good deal. I like my unlimited on VZN, but if my wife decides she wants a smart phone this looks like the way to go. She won’t use much data but adding a shared plan on VZN for her is painful. It would be cheaper to drop the $10 line and buy a G on Republic.

      You’d make your wife use Wifi and the Sprint network? Harsh, Bro.

        The Sprint bashing is old, get some new material.

        • Franklin Ramsey

          New Material? But… I just started!

          • ken147

            That’s what she said!!! 😀

          It can’t get old so long as it stays true.
