I have been waiting patiently for over a year to get a Republic Wireless phone and was actually able to get one a few weeks ago and so far have had no issues.
After using it for a while I am now in a position where I can cancel for a full refund and get a dual band phone.
Browsing through the republic forums I came across a mention on Ting and decided to check it out. So now I am in a dilemma to either continue with my trade-in or give Ting a try. Looking at the cost, it would be very comparable, actually may be cheaper as I decide to add my kids onto the play (assuming only texting would need to be increased).
The real concerns for Republic is that the unlimited is only on wifi which would require me kids to always be on a lookout for wifi, which may or may not happen, and the lack of MMS.
So my question is, what are some pros and cons of Ting and if any of you have tried Republic and switched to Ting, would you recommend one over the other?
All comments I have read on this forum about Republic were months ago, and now that they have opened the beta to the public and include a dual band phone, I want to know if any opinions have changed.
Thanks for your response.
