Even though the iPhone 4S is the same device across carriers, starting at the same $199 price for the basic 16GB version, its cost still varies. How’s that, you might wonder…

Swift why are you getting aggresive calm down guy lol its the internet don't take it personal and that's why they have comment boxes so people can comment and leave their opinions. And before you needlessly start insulting maybe u should read ur comment and think it through before posting. Read paragraph 4 guy.

I wish you read the article first. The "ridiculous" statement applies to the $169.99 Verizon is charging for unlimited minutes and 10GB of data, and last time I checked it was for a single line.

VICTOR you need to adjust your calculations. you missed the boat on Tmobile completely noone would buy an unlocked phone and go on a CLASSIC plan. Hell, noone goes on a classic plan now. They would go on the VALUE plan which starts at 59.99 for unlimited talk, text, and 2gigs of data. 5 gigs of data for 75.00 or 10 gigs for 100. Most people never need more than the 2 gig plan unless they are heavy netflix/tether people. come on man.. geesh. I work at tmobile.. 1 in 20 new lines might go classic and only because they dont understand how much better the value plans are. NOONE that has their own phone would go classic.. ever.

Since when did Phonearena become one big advertisement for Sprint? I wonder how much they are getting paid.

For those fretting about paying an arm and a leg, get an unlocked version and put it on Straight Talk. You'll save yourself all kinds of money in the long run.
