WalletHub has a cell phone savings calculator to help you determine the best option when purchasing the phone.

“With family plans [for example], you can save around $1,700 and $1,000 for individual plans just by using the right carrier,” said Jill Gonzales, an analyst for WalletHub. “We looked at everything from Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, and also low cost carriers like Metro PCS.”

Gonzales said the calculator will help consumers who did not pre-order the phone. If you did pre-order your phone through a cell phone carrier, you are locked into your contract with that company.
