republic wireless

I have to say that this looks like a fairly good idea. A mobile phone that uses yours or any w-ifi connection and then cell tower for backup. Looks like all spots are currently filled, but you can leave email for notification when more spots are open.

Hmm. That looks promising, although my preference would be a Motorola phone. Still, not a bad deal... one that I may be willing to take for a spin.

It would look even better if it used the Verizon network.  Sprint, at least down here, leaves a lot to be desired with very spotty coverage in lots of areas.  It's the reason I dropped the less expensive Sprint for Verizon.  But a good idea and they certainly make a good point about overpaying for cell and data plans.
