    Howard related because I'm sure he's concerned about a $130 monthly iPhonex3 bill.

    Republic Wireless and Google's Project Fi are two of the WiFi-first phone companies. You're usually around WiFi, yes? So they offer text and talk over WiFi with a cell network fallback option. Maybe $25 a month vs $40. But you have to buy one of their approved phones.

    I'm ready to buy a $130 phone and see if it works, then if it does move the other lines to Republic. Anybody been this route/ Does it work?

    My wife just got one of those things for work from home. I'll ask her which one. So far so good.

    Is it compatible with your 14k modem?

    I have a $35 unlimited TT&D plan from Boost Mobile. (Had to buy a $50 Moto G phone)
    No complaints.
