Virgin Mobile’s iPhone 4S sums add up

Virgin Mobile caused a shudder amid the tech world yesterday, confirming it would be offering the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with no contract and hitherto unseen low calling plans, but do the numbers hold up to scrutiny?

Swallowing the cost of a new smartphone upfront can bypass a whole lot of monthly pain, however. Read on for the sums that will salve your wallet.
