Republic Wireless today announced the formal launch and availability of its low-cost service and first device. The service had previously been in beta since late 2011. Republic is an MVNO that uses Sprint's network and offers unlimited everything for $19 per month. Republic Wireless uses a combination of cellular data and Wi-Fi to pass VoIP-based calls through the internet rather than through traditional voice networks. It named the technology Hybrid Calling. Anyone interested in using Republic's service can preorder the Motorola Defy XT, which supports its Hybrid Calling technology, beginning today. It costs $249 and requires a $10 start-up fee and first-month's service. Republic didn't say when the device would ship. The company will eventually offer a variant of the LG Optimus, as well.

I would so be interested in this. I'm essentially doing the same thing on T-mobile's $30 prepaid plan with google voice anyways. But then again, you know, Sprint. And when the whole thing requires a decent data connection to make a call, I can see where there may be some very serious issues.
I would defiantly use Republic Wireless if they used Verizon or AT&T's LTE/3G networks and had a larger selection of phones.
