Originally, Republic indicated an intent to allow unlimited Wifi calling and to impose some limits on CDMA usage, but they recently announced that they would not be enforcing any CDMA usage limits. It is very likely that Republic will eventually begin enforcing an unadvertised limit on CDMA usage, by referring to clauses in their Terms of Service which prohibit certain types of usage.
