This is a great list of resources for converting files.
 
One of our readers put together a massive list of converters for just about everything:
At least four times a day I convert something - dollars to euro, cm to inches or PDF files to PPT depending on what I’m going about.

Here is my thoughts on my future with RW. 
I am not going to buy a new RW phone. I was planning to upgrade, but with the uncertainty of the new pricing structure and the cost of their phones, the math becomes questionable.

If my phone brakes, I'm probably gone. Just me for now, in all I have 6 RW lines.

If one of my six lines needs a new phone, I'll probably give them my phone and switch out to a new carrier. For $300 I can purchase the Zenfone 2 with 64 GB of storage and 4 GB of ram. Seems like a pretty sweet phone. 

Why I would leave you ask? If the new pricing model that is part of the Maestro Lab gets pushed out as it is, RW looses value for me. I am a 2+gb per month user and the new pricing plans would cost me more money. At $15 per GB it becomes very clear that there are better phones with better data prices. My wife on the other hand is probably going to stay with RW as she uses 1.5 GB on average. My parents will also stay as they are usually VERY low data users. 

Another reason for opting out is the Sprint Network. While I've seen improvements over the last 2 years, things are still a LONG way from being good in my area. The low cost is what allows me to tolerate the crap service.

What would I switch to? As of now, it looks like Cricket has the best options in my area. I can get a 5 GB plan for $45 a month. From what I understand that is a flat fee with no additional taxes, making it the same price as what I am paying now for the RW 4G plan, but  I get the added benefit of AT&T's network. A network that is 10X better than what Sprint has to offer. Couple that with a sweet new phone for $300 and I'm looking at a very tempting situation. 

Just a few thoughts for you my friends here on google+.

I don't hate Republic Wireless and will probably keep my son's phone on it but I find the Sprint Network is a shortcoming for me.  If it improves, I may stick with them.  If not, I won't.

Here is the price structure. You start with a $10 plan and add data as you need. So, if you buy 2 gb of data, you pay $40. Any unused data would then come back to you as a credit against your next month's bill. In effect, you might save some money, but if you ever had a high data usage month, you could wipe out months worth of savings. The 5 gb you currently have access to would cost $85 (including the $10 call and text charge). Simply put, this is great for your mom, bad for anyone that likes using their smartphone for anything other than making calls.

Well folks, the much anticipated details are out for the new pricing structure from +Republic Wireless. I was selected to be in the Maestro beta and I am NOT going to participate. The price is $15 per GB of data. In effect, $10 for cell service and if I used just 2 GB of data that would push my bill to $50. I don't see how this is a great plan if you use your phone much at all. If someone NEVER uses data, this plan is awesome. If you use 1.5GB a month or more of data, this is of no value to you at all.

The whole idea behind Republic is to reduce cost by running over WiFi as much as possible. If you use cellular coverage "all the time", you were never their target audience.

How are you all doing with battery life? Since the last update I'm seeing a sharp drop. At the end of the day before the update with the screen always on I was seeing 40% battery life. Yesterday I had to put it on to charge at 10pm. I switched to a stock watch face as well.

Well, this isn't good. At least I wasn't the only one with a service outage. http://status.republicwireless.com/

This store is a train wreck. I ordered pizzas an hour ahead of time, walked in to pick up my order, and had to wait over 15 minutes. My order wasn't huge, it was only 6 pizzas. I think it's time to remove hot n ready from their advertising. I eventually left without my whole order because I couldn't wait any longer.
