So, feel no shame in getting yourself a nice $13 flip phone to take the place of your pricey iPhone. We know, it’s hard to go mere seconds without your iPhone by your side—but when it comes down to it, the iPad’s services are cheaper. The iPad may not have voice calling, but if you primarily use your iPhone for surfing the Web and playing games, the iPad has a more pocketbook-friendly service plan.
The initial cost of the iPad device will be more—with 3G model prices ranging from $629 to $829—but in the long run the iPhone’s total expenses will cost more if you consider the monthly costs for phone service, data expenses and contracts. Of course, you are paying for that convenience of having a phone that can multitask, receive calls and surf the Web. Engadget does a lovely rundown of the arithmetic for the iPad versus the iPhone.
