Cricket customers can get an off-contract iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c with nationwide unlimited talk/text/data starting at $50. Cricket's Smart Plans support 4G LTE and 3G CDMA wireless networks, and offer up to 10GB of full-speed data allowance.

Cricket was originally the only prepaid carrier to offer Apple's iPhone, but it has since been joined by other prepaid carriers such as Virgin and Boost Mobile.

Virgin Mobile is currently offering the 16GB iPhone 5s for $549, and the iPhone 5c for $449. Its Beyond Talk Plans start at $30 a month and include unlimited messaging and data.
