Which option would you prefer?

  1. Get the newest iPhone subsidized every year but are ALWAYS locked in a 2-yr contract?

    60.0%
  2. Finish remaining 1-yr contract w/ your 4s & go prepaid afterwards w/ SimpleMobile for $45/mo

    40.0%

    Not sure which option to go which is why I'm asking :confused:

    If you could either:

    1) Always have the newest iPhone every year BUT are ALWAYS locked in a 2-yr contract.

    or

    2) Finish your remaining 1-yr contract with your 4s and then go prepaid with SimpleMobile ($45/mo unlimited everything)

    Which option would you choose?

    I don't know too much about prepaid plans but the one big negative is that they are regional. If you don't travel around the US or out of your region then it's a viable option. I don't travel a lot but when I do I wouldn't want to worry about something like that.

    You also have to look at the plans and see if they make sense based on your use.
