Seems like a great option if you are in a Sprint coverage area. Especially if you're in an area that has or is going to get LTE soon! 5c = $449 5s = $549 Plans range from: $30 = 300 min w/ unlimited text & data $40 = 1200 min w/ unlimited text & data $50 = Unlimited everything I'm on a AT&T family plan and only pay $35 a month for min + unlimited data but if I ever had to switch I might end up going with Virgin Mobile. Seems like as long as you have enough money to afford the iPhone upfront you end up saving some serious cash over a 2-year contract with a carrier P.S. before anyone asks the question : NO, you cannot use these on Sprint or anywhere else, they are locked to Virgin Mobile only.
