I just checked out Cricket. iPhone 5 and their 1 GB data plan (why they call it unlimited is beyond me) is $716.00 with a monthly of $51 per phone. I'm missing the value because, as far as I can tell, I can get the same phone with VW and get the same plan for $90 a month. Each phone is $40 ea. and we share the 1 GB for $50. However, the phone is just $199. Over a 2-year period for my family of four: Cricket: $7,556 VW: $5,836 I am not willing to spend either amount. I pay right at $150 a month now for four regular phones.
