LG Optimus (Republic Wireless)
Republic Wireless, a recently unveiled provider, has a particularly unique plan - and it's the cheapest. After an initial payment of $199 that includes the first month of service and the phone - the LG Optimus - payments revert to $19.99 each month. The catch is that Republic uses hybrid calling. When internet is available, calls will be done through Wi-Fi. Using this method, there's unlimited talk, text and data, but if you start surpassing suggested usage, you'll get a warning to lower it, or you'll get kicked out of 'the club.'
