Which is better and cheaper?
So I've finally decided to get an iPhone 4. Now the decision of which one to buy! So which is better iPhone 4 for Virgin Mobile which can be purchased for $350 on their website or buy an iPhone 4 Sprint/Verizon and flash/unlock it to Virgin Mobile? Which is cheaper and more efficient? Because I heard that if you flashed an IPhone 4 to MetroPCS then the MMS or data would not work properly. Would flashing an iPhone 4 to Virgin Mobile give you all the features? Or is it best to pay $350 to buy the iPhone 4 off the Virgin Mobile website?

If you plan on using it on VM get one that's for them so all the features will work.
You don't want to spend money on a crippled iPhone that most features won't work with your carrier.

The iPhone 4 isn't worth paying $350 for. Even off contract. You're getting 512mb of RAM, an 800MHz Single Core CPU, and 8gb of storage. With the rate of how things are going, that's a bad investment. If it were free, I'd be less hesitant to recommend it but I'd still be wary. Look on ebay for a used unlocked 4s if you must have an iPhone.
I hate to recommend this on the iPhone forum, but if you want a cheap, unlocked, new phone. I'd take a look at the Galaxy S3 Mini.
1Ghz Dual Core
8-16gb of Storage with SD card expansion.
Dual Band Wifi.
We can argue which OS is better (both have their strengths and weaknesses) until the end of mankind, but if you want solid bang for your buck in a cheap, unlocked phone in a small package, the S3 Mini makes a compelling option.
GSM Unlocked Moto X 16gb (Android 4.4.3)
ATT Nokia Lumia 520 8gb (Windows Phone 8.1)
Slate iPod Touch 5th Generation 32gb (iOS 6.1.2)
Slate iPad Mini 16gb (iOS 7.1.1)

At least get an iPhone 4S. The iPhone 4 is heavily crippled because of its 2-and-a-half-year-old hardware.
The funny thing about this signature is that by the time you get to the end of it, you will have spent between five and ten seconds doing so.
