Same question to 16GB iPhone 5S users. 
My earlier post did a calculation based on a AT&T smartphone plan. Some one insisted that the smartphones are subsidized. 
Good you agree with me the phone is not subsidized.  I am not saying the telephone companies are raping us.  They have a lot of other things to spend like building the LTE network.  Further, they have been making the deals better recently. The multi-carriers model are benefiting the consumers.
You are not leasing the phone.  After two years the phone is yours. 
I never understand this.  Why would people pay full price for a smartphone if it can be subsidized?
Simple question to you.  When does the $3120 go in two years?  Only people poor in math think their smartphones are subsidized without thinking how much money they paid the telephone company in two years. 
 Most people upgrade after the two year plan.  The phone company already has this factored in the price. 
The word subsidized really is a marketing gimmick.  You are paying back with the two year plan.  For exmaple, the AT&T $130/month two smartphones plan will cost you $3120 in two years.  Compare this to the $50 to $75 price of your wish. 
You can connect to internet via a smartphone which acts as a hotspot.  You do not need the cellular built in iPod because you need a smartphone anyway. 
How many iPod Touch Apple sold last quarter/year?  Apple could turn around the iPod business with todays changes.  I have been preaching Apple to start iPad model with 32GB for a long time.
