Ah, the iPhone. It has been one of the frontrunners of the smartphone revolution since the release of the original iPhone in June of 2007, and with the release of the iPhone 5 in September 2012, it continues to be one of the most sought-after cellphones around. No matter where you are, there is bound to be at least one person with their iPhone out, and you’ll probably hear the familiar chime of someone getting a message on one, coming from a pocket or purse in your vicinity.

The original iPhone set quite a few design precedents that are still visible in the current models, such as button placement, as well as what has been one of the iPhone’s biggest innovations, the touch-screen that its user interface is built around. It also introduced us to the virtual keyboard, and can be synced with iTunes to play music from your library, and it allowed one to easily access the internet for browsing, or to check e-mail and social networking sites.

Each iPhone is released with its own operating system, the original being version iPhone OS 1.0.  The iPhone 3G introduced the ability to record videos, as well as take pictures, and 3G cellular network capabilities and its aGPS. The iPhone 4 brought us Siri, the “retina display”, and a front-facing camera. The sixth generation iPhone 5 offers 4G cellular network capabilities, the iPhone operating system iOS 6.0, and a 4-inch retina display, which is a good bit larger than the previous 3.5-inch screen the older models features. It’s also thinner, lighter, and offers faster processing than the previous iPhones.

It’s never too late to jump on the iPhone bandwagon, and with news already being leaked about the iPhone 5S, you probably won’t have to wait long to stand in line to become one of the first owners of the latest model.

So that’s it. You’ve decided to take the plunge headfirst into the iPhone’s welcoming smartphone waters

(incidentally, do NOT drop your new iPhone into any water), and you’re pretty sure that you can afford it. I mean, every other person you know seems to have one, and some of those people barely have enough cash to afford the proverbial pot to… well, you know. So how much could they possibly be? Well, that all depends, but they might be a little pricier than you’re expecting. Should you want to just buy the iPhone 5 outright and shop around for month-to-month plans, get ready to drop around $650 for the 16GB version, $750 for the 32GB one, and right about $850 for the 64GB model. Once you’ve dropped all that dough, you can probably find a plan that costs between $45 and $60 a month, for a low-end total of around $1,800 for two years, or the higher-end price of about $2300 for two years.

Should you decide to go with a two-year plan from a major carrier like AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint, you can probably get the iPhone 5 for either $199, $299, or $399 for the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models, respectively, with either a new two-year contract, or if you’re eligible for an upgrade. You can usually pay about $200 extra for the option to upgrade early, if you absolutely can’t wait. Most unlimited data packages run between $60 and $100 every month, and some don’t actually include texting or voice calls, so after factoring all of that in, on the low end, you can get the iPhone 5 with a two-year contract and pay around $2000 over the two years, and on the high end, you can get your new iPhone 5 and two-year contract and pay right about $3800 over the next two years.

I know, right?
