    What are you looking forward to in 2014? Upgrading to a new phone? Sure; who wouldn't be? And with plenty of high-profile models expected, it's shaping up to be a year full of solid options. You can expect to see handsets running faster than ever before, offering better camera quality than you've ever seen on a phone, and introducing screens with more pixels than your living room HDTV. And while maybe not anything worth getting excited about to nearly the same extent, you can probably also look forward to the year bringing numerous improvements to wireless service. Again, nothing ...

    Now that the Moto G is out, getting a Moto X requires you to think twice; however, if you have to go with the bigger brother -- and we understand the reasons behind it, with higher specs and a dedicated co-processor that monitors the environment -- and you prefer Republic Wireless, you can now get your own. The phone itself will set you back just a hair below $300, but you'll have to select one of the four available plans, ranging from $5, all the way to $40 per month, depending on whether you want WiFi only (with talk, text, and data), or all you can eat with 4G. If you want to know more ...

    Remember Republic Wireless? The carrier upstart has been trying to make a name for itself by offering some incredibly affordable plans: for a mere $19 a month, it would give users unlimited access via Sprint's network, though with the understanding that the phone would instead do most of its business over WiFi whenever such a connection was available. That sounded promising, but the selection of compatible phones – just the Motorola Defy XT and LG Optimus S – left much to be desired. Republic's been teasing a big announcement for today, and while we haven't seen the news go official ...

    Is the smartphone industry on the cusp of some sweeping price reforms? The Nexus 4's bargain-basement off-contract price tag has us re-thinking the whole carrier-subsidized pricing model, and we might soon get a chance to see some big changes to how cellular service is priced, as well. Surely the rumors of Google becoming a wireless provider itself are very intriguing, but it's not the only game in town with the potential to start making some changes. Republic Wireless has been working on its own super-cheap smartphone service for some time now, and the company is finally ready to move ...

    It's an alluring concept: pay $19 per month (plus tax), get unlimited voice calling, text messaging, and data access. On a smartphone. Sure, it might run an older version of Android on dated, costly hardware, but it's still a smartphone. With an unlimited plan. Without a contract. For 19 smackers a month. That's the dream North Carolina-based carrier Republic Wireless is trying to deliver on with its new pricing scheme, a rate plan buried in taglines heavy on the word "freedom." Competing wireless carriers in the United States typically charge three to five times as much for their ...
