Personally, I would go to and get a good to mint condition used phone that meets your current needs. No reason to pay a premium. Then just sell the broken phone for whatever you can get from Ebay\Craigslist. This way you can stay on your current plan and deal with whatever 5G stuff you want when it comes out\when it is convenient.

That being said, if you insist on paying for the latest bells and whistles the moment they come out (like 5g), you will get ripped off, but it is your money. Any increased speed in 5G is likely not going to make any appreciable difference for most people (outside of just paying a lot more lol), esp. those on limited data plans. People who do most of their stuff on wifi or on limited 4g plans are not going to need 5G.
