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?
