    You can use it on H20, redpocket, straighttalk. Might be others that run off AT&T's network in the US.
    About the next iphone it will most likely be sold contract free and factory unlocked so you can use it on any GSM carrier even on prepaid ones.
    Prices usually start at $650 plus tax for the base model 16GB.

    The cheapest one and best I heard is straighttalk for $45 a month. Unlimited talk, text and 2GB data.
    Cricket wont work with your AT&T iphone. Cricket is a CDMA carrier.
    Yes, you can still keep all the contacts you have in the phone now and everything that's on it. All you will do is put in a sim and you will get service that's all.

    The 4S supports HSPA+. Not real 4G but AT&T calls it 4G and yes you will get the same speeds with those carriers I mentioned above since they just use and resell AT&T's network.
