    They don't support the iPhone.

    that's too bad.

    Maybe in the future then...Apple can always sign a deal with them like Motorola has done. Moto X is $299 off-contract with Republic Wireless.

    This, with the Moto X, makes it a fantastic deal.

    Too bad Apple will probably never sign a deal with Republic. They try to off-road their voice traffic over wifi as much as possible. Something that the iPhone doesn't support.

    A friend bought their Moto X deal upon it's announcement. His original plan was to use it as a secondary phone just for fun. It ended up working so well he now uses it as his primary smartphone. It's very impressive.

    Republic basically took T-Mo's 'calls over wifi' idea to different level, by making it a plan.

    Funny, Steve Job's original idea was to use wifi only even for phonecalls and skip carriers, but given the fact that you can't rely on wifi everywhere, he couldn't.

    In the meantime, if you want to pay $10 per month for your iPhone, check out Airvoice Wireless, they have the best $10 value plan out there for BYOP (250 minutes, 500 texts, I think).

    It might be the way of the future.

    The technology for voice over wifi is improving each day.
