    So I want to get an iPhone 5 or 5c the cheapest way I can (even if it means only having 200mb of data:eek:)

    These are the cheapest plans I could find for the 5:

    Wind: (bad coverage, but I do live in a city with full coverage)
    $600 iphone 5 unlocked
    $30/month unlimited data
    2 year total = $1320

    Virgin:
    $400 iphone 5 from virgin
    $45/month 200mb
    2 year total = $1480

    Koodo:
    $400 iphone 5 from koodo
    $45/month 200mb
    2 year total = $1480

    Or wait for the 5c, but I'm worried it won't be available on Koodo or Virgin for as low of a monthly price, or even on Wind at all (at least not right away, right?).

    What would be my best choice? I can't put an unlocked iphone on a prepaid plan, can I?

    Well, the "5-finger discount" seems to get people in trouble... but it is the best price in town! :p

    JK, I'd go with Virgin Mobile or Kodoo from the looks of it. Is there a real difference between the two?

    No I guess not. haha

    Does anyone know if the 5c will be available at koodo on a tab medium and/or on a virgin gold plan for $45/month?

    It seems that if you're living in a city (where you will spend the majority of your time), Wind seems like a far better deal with unlimited data and $30/month. Being with a National carrier has it's perks though in terms of coverage. I'm on Fido with a 6gb plan, but pay $79 per month after taxes/fees. The benefits, of course, is when I travel, I am pretty much guaranteed 3G/LTE coverage and thankfully, data is nation-wide.

    If you never leave the city, Wind seems like a steal.
