The new iPhone is coming out, which means you might be deciding which iphone plan will save you the most money, and if it’s worth it to renew for another two years with your existing carrier. Here’s a breakdown of every base iphone plan for each major carrier, and how it stacks up to the Switch Wireless iPhone plan.
|Carrier||Activation Fee||Contract Length||Minutes||Data||SMS||Monthly Cost||Estimated Monthly Taxes based on 34207 area code|
|Switch Wireless||$0||No Contract||Unlimited||Unlimited||Unlimited||$50||Included in Monthly Cost|
|Sprint||$0||2 Years||450 minutes and Unlimited Weekends and Evenings (7 p.m.)||Unlimited||Unlimited||$79.99||$12.19|
|AT&T||$36||2 Years||450 minutes and unlimited Weekends and Evenings (7 p.m.)||3 GB||Unlimited||$98.98||$15.08|
If you have an iPhone that is in great shape, consider all of the money you will save if you stick with your phone and switch to a Switch Wireless monthly plan. You’ll be saving at least $40 per month on your iPhone plan! If you really want to upgrade to the new iPhone when it comes out, even if you buy it outright you will still be saving money over the 2 years you would be locked in to a contract with the big guys.
Consider this: If you went with Verizon, you would probably pay $200 for an iPhone plus $2,760 for your monthly service for the life of your 2 year contract. That’s $2,960 total. If you went with a Switch Wireless plan, let’s say the new iPhone goes for the same price as the iPhone 4S, which was $650. Then, over 2 years you would pay a total of $1,200 for your monthly service – for a total of $1,850. That’s a savings of $1,110! Plus, you’re getting more for your money with unlimited calls, texts, and data.
The best part is, you won’t be giving up call quality or coverage to save money. Want proof? Check out the Switch Wireless coverage map. You get way better coverage than the other big no contract companies like Virgin Mobile, who only relies on towers actually owned by the Sprint Network – which will leave your phone useless in many areas.
