Virgin scores 550 times

Aug 27 2003 - 12:37 AM ET | Sprint Nextel, Virgin Mobile
Virgin Mobile has inked a deal with Sprint PCS to add its prepaid phones to some 550 Sprint PCS stores nationwide. This is a huge deal for the up-and-coming pre-paid company. Sprint PCS was one of the few companies that didn't offer pre-paid, so this should be a win/win deal. Typically speaking, pre-paid sales are more popular with younger people since their is no age restriction or credit check. Often time phones can be "re-charged" at gas stations.
