Following the announcement that the iPhone 5 is coming to T-Mobile on April 12, Zagg has compiled a cost comparison to help you establish the most financially viable option when it comes to owning an iPhone on one of the U.S’s 4 major carriers.
The AT&T and Verizon pricing is taken from their Share Everything/Mobile share plans, based on only having one line on the account. Obviously, Sprint doesn’t offer tiered data, so the only plan available is unlimited.
T-Mobile’s data.. ermm… data assumes you’ll go for the unlimited option, but it does also note that choosing the 2GB option will save you $240 over the two year span. As you can see, even if you did opt for T-Mobile’s unlimited data plan, then it is still significantly cheaper than its rivals. Granted, this isn’t the only thing you should consider if you’re lining up to buy an iPhone 5, however, it’s definitely worth noting that financially, T-Mobile will certainly give you the best deal.
Are you planning to switch to T-Mobile? Or are you already with T-Mobile and hoping to buy an iPhone 5? Leave your comments below, and be sure to follow me on Twitter @TiP_Stephen
