    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 :)

    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.
