    Hey everyone,

    Great news about the iPhone 5 coming to Virgin... That $35 a month is awesome. BUT, I'm about to ditch Verizon, and I was wondering if I should take up the iPhone 5 on Virgin, or wait for the 5S and get it unlocked to use with T-Mobile's prepaid $50 a month.

    It comes down to this (based on the next two years):


    Virgin Mobile

    iPhone 5 - $549
    Plan - $35*24 = $840
    Cancellation fee - $140

    TOTAL - $1529

    T-Mobile
    iPhone 5S - $649
    Plan - $50*24 = $1200

    TOTAL - $1849

    Difference - $320


    Now the question is: Should I wait to get the 5S? In other words, will it be worth the $320 difference?

    Just realized that T-Mobile also has a $30 a month plan...

    So it would end up being cheaper than Virgin.

    Any ideas on what I should do?

    Personally, I would choose T-Mobile. Virgin mobile runs off of Sprint's network.

    And T-Mobile's 4G LTE is good?
