Republic Wireless Will Support Google Pixel and Pixel XL Soon

google-pixel-pixel-xl
Google recently announced its new Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones and already, they're catching the attention from interested individuals. Republic Wireless, an MVNO operating under T-Mobile and Sprint, has just announced that they will be supporting the two Pixel devices.

As part of the MVNO's recently launched 'Bring Your Own Phone' program, customers who buy either device and have it activated through their network can get to enjoy the plans offered by Republic Wireless. Their plans start at $15 a month. In the meantime, interested individuals may already order their SIM card from the MVNO for $5 as they wait for the phone to launch later this month.

Apart from this, Republic Wireless offers "Hybrid Calling" to its users. Whenever there is a problem with the network, the call automatically switches to Wi-Fi. The MVNO also has calls enabled with Bonded Calling technology, which manages to catch dropped calls before they even happen.

As of this writing, Google is taking pre-orders for both the Pixel and Pixel XL. The two devices come in 32GB and 128GB storage options along with three colors to choose from: Really Blue, Very Silver, and Quite Black. Both device come with Google features such as Daydream Virtual Reality, Google Assistant, and unlimited storage space for photos. When the two phones launch, they will already be running on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

  2. Extremely overpriced. Worst received Google phone yet. No thanks.

  3. I've seen mostly glowing reviews of the Pixel. And it is not overpriced when you consider it comes with a cloud service others charge a lot for, and actual support. Not to mention the premium features.

    Like with the S7s and iPhones, it costs a lot but you get a lot.

    But I'd get one unlocked to run on a big, good network MVNO or division if I were to get one, not have it on "fly-by-night" Republic, which only runs on the small 3rd and 4th place networks.

    1. The majority of people don't buy phones online, and this overpriced, underwhelming pile of dung will soon fall by the wayside. Always next year folks!

  4. Why would anybody sign up for Republic Wireless anymore? They ratcheted up the price on all their plans while others are lowering theirs. Text Now has unlimited calling + 2g data for less than RW voice only plan, and has $5 phones instead of $200+. RW hybrid calling introduces latency just like FREE RingPlus plans. For any level of usage, there's a cheaper option.

  7. I cant believe that people are still using this service, where u have to pay 15 dollar per month for unlimited talk and text, u will get the same for 3.99 with ring plus.

    1. Yeah, if you want to go with an iffy/gimmicky/scheme-y Sprint MVNO, go with FreedomPop or Ring+ and save a LOT of money.

      Republic has the iffy/etc without the savings.

    2. And voice latency rivaling a string and a can.

    3. Two tin cans tied by a string... That's the T-Mobile logo. The same, with the string frayed and broken? That's Sprint.

      Seriously, I'm not going to p*ss and moan about the major compromises and inferiority of RingPlus... The very low cost is a comfortable fit with the quality.

  8. Ring plus Mad plans don't have latency, for 15 dollar you will get unlimited t&t and 1 gb data also.

    1. Ringplus Mad plan still has voice quality problems for me. I have BBQ something or another. It could be the other side.

  9. Verizon is selling this phone but they encrypted the bootloader so you can't get it unlocked. I found that Google is selling it on a pay plan for 31.21 a month for 24 month on their Google play store website and from what I understand you will be able to use this device on all four major carriers. If I'm going to buy one that's how I would buy it. Unlocked

    1. The Verizon Pixel phones only had 3 added worthless pieces of bloatware. Not bad.

      But Verizon will needlessly go out of its way to delay the instant Android updates from Google... That's one of the strengths of the Pixel! A show stopper for me.

  10. Reading about the ongoing problems with bonded calling at fringe signal makes me think they should not even mention it.

    Republic looks like a garage shop operation.

      You forgot the "b" in the middle of "garbage".

    2. "You forgot the "b" in the middle of "garbage"

      I mulled your comment for a long time and finally decided you are correct. Garage shops do try harder to get stuff done and problems corrected.

  11. Republic is a horrible company. They make America Movil look good. Back when their prices were decent, you were forced to endure a horrible phone. Now that you can use a good phone, the prices are ridiculous.

    Google completely ruined the Nexus program starting with the Nexus 6. Using Huawei to make the 6P was a critical mistake.

    Google needs to return to their roots of making near flagship unlocked phones with support for a plurality of bands for an economical price.
