Default A little help please

Ok so this question may seem like a no brainer but I just want to get a little input before I make my decision. So my wife just renewed her contract with Sprint. I am holding out, I was going to get the optimus G but I really like the Nexus 4 and the whole idea of updates from Google.
My question is this. Is it worth it to Spend a little more money up front and have two different phone bills to save betwenn 20-35 dollars a month (not sure exactly how much till I get another bill). Or should I just get the OptimusG and root it to save a little money upfront like I was planning to since I am already roped into a two year contract

Well if you are saving 20-35$ a month, over the course of 2 years your savings would be between 480-840$ which is definitely worth the cost of paying more up front, so i would say yes, definitely do it, if you want to save that money

Yes. Go prepaid if you can afford the upfront cost.

Depending on how long you are from your contract date, ask Sprint about the buy-up program. If you're not that far away, it might be worth it. Make an offer - tell them you want the service but not the phone you have.

Thanks for the input guys I was leaning towards going prepaid. I just need to save up enough money for the 16gb. I just did all the math and I would save $40 a month. That is too much to pass up.
