The Moto X on Republic Wireless is one of the best no-contract phone deals around, and starting 12:00 PM ET on Apr 1, those looking to get Motorola's flagship from the low-cost carrier can customize it with the Moto Maker tool. You now also have the option of getting a 32GB model for $399 (existing 16GB version: $349) with one of Republic's plans that start from $5 a month.
Wondering why the rates are so cheap? Republic Wireless keeps its prices low by making use of Wi-Fi in place of cellular data whenever possible. Whenever you are connected to Wi-Fi, your phone calls, messages, Facebook posts and other activities will go over that network. You'll switching over to Republic's Sprint-powered cellular network when you're out of range. This leads to impressive cost savings over two years.
