So I'm sitting on an iPhone 4 that's been off contract with AT&T for a few months. I wanna get the new iPhone and I wanna stop paying AT&T a thousand bucks a year to drop my calls. I was planning to buy unlocked and go prepaid, which sounded simple in theory but in reality I'm not sure if it's even possible. Here's what I want to do within the next month if anyone can offer me some guidance I'd be real happy... Sell iPhone 4 (Through Nextworth, Amazon, or eBay) Pre order the new iPhone unlocked Switch to Virgin and transfer my # from AT&T Is there any chance that Virgin, Straight Talk, or Cricket will get the iPhone 5 at launch? I assume I can't just buy an unlocked one and bring it to them to activate since all US prepaid company's are CDMA and real locked down. If that's not possible what's my next best option for getting the new iPhone and a reasonable prepaid plan? I'm real sick of being locked in to one of the big 3 paying them $1000 more over two years for their plans compared to what the same thing would cost me on prepaid.
