    Talking iPhone for T-Mobile Prepaid plan?

    Hey guys.

    So, I was looking for inexpensive iPhone plans, and I came across the $30 Unlimited Web and Text with 100 Minutes. I don't talk much, and I don't use more than 5GB (which is the throttle for 4G speeds). This seems like the perfect plan for me. Is there any catches I need to know about? Is an AT&T iPhone 4/4S/5 good on T-Mobile's network? (I would probably get a 4 or 4S, so I would be using 3G.)

    Thanks!!

    I found the prepaid plan here:

    (P.S. when I try to get the free iPad wallpapers, it says I don't have the privileged to see it. ???)

    Yeah, I've looked at Straight Talk. With their $495 yearly plan, the price would total to $4490 with phones, SIM cards, and everything. (I have 4 lines on my account.) On T-Mobile, the price would total to $3380, saving us $1110 if we did the Straight Talk yearly plan. The $45 monthly plan would total to even more than the yearly plan.

    So, the question is: Is the better coverage from Straight Talk and the Unlimited Minutes (which I don't need) worth the extra $1110?
