Additionally, yeah it's probably cheaper than an iphone plan through verizon or AT&T, but you're not getting verizon or AT&T, you're getting T-Mobile. $70-75 for 500 mins, unlimited text, and the wifi router internet is not cheaper than simply getting a "plan" with data through t-mobile. Last I checked, you could get unlimited voice, text, and data for $50 /month t-mobile pre-paid phone service (data is slowed to 2G after 200mb, but that doesn't matter since you can only run 2G internet on an iphone anyways). Personally, I'd say you're better off saving the extra $25 /month, living with the slower data, and using wifi wherever it is available (if you live in a larger city, there's wifi pretty much everywhere - the only times you really need data is when you're on the road or when you travel somewhere more rural). If I really had to have faster internet, when wifi wasn't available, then I would just use a different phone.
