Ebay.  As far as I know ALL iPhones require a contract.  But as of Sunday, AT&T is allowing phones off contract to be unlocked and used on TMobile and AT&T networks.

Of course, I recommend Android...

The only way to get one with no contract that I know of is to buy one on Ebay.  If you have an existing contract with someone, you should be able to buy an iPhone and then activate it under your current plan with little or no extra charge.  If you don't have a contract with anyone, you might as well go sign a 2 year deal and get a free older model iPhone or cheap 4s.

I have an Android phone and also own an iPad.  There is nothing I can do on the iPad that I cannot do on my Android device.  (screen size is different obviously).

Literally EVERY good app these days has a carbon copy or something very close on Android.  And the open market and less restrictions by manufacturers is also nice.  Apple has a great device that does exactly what they want...whereas Android does exactly what you want.  That's just my opinion.

It depends on the app, really.  Most of the games are actually cheaper because Android often offers ad supported versions for free, or paid versions for like $1.99.  Whereas the iPhone version might just be 1.99 or .99 for the game.

If it is a productivity app or some other type of program, they are usually pretty similar I think.
