Journal Bob_Who's Journal: Sprint, Walmart launch Common Cents mobile

As reported on Broad Band DSL, Sprint and Walmart launch Common Cents mobile - You can call it 'Common Cents' or 'Boost' or 'Virgin' or 'Sprint', it is still not a great deal. Prepay Common Cents cellular at .07Â a minute / per text still boils down to a $20/mo. bottom line, for some, since your minutes may expire monthly. Unused time and inactive phone numbers may be forfeited, so you better feed the kitty on time. Its half the price of Sprint's $39.99*/mo 2 year contract price point (* $46 or so, w/ surcharges & fees). Unfortunately, the customer must buy yet another new cell phone to add to the collection of unnecessary toxic land fill. The fact that my old Sprint phone can't be used on this SPRINT network is par for the course, as is the fact that value is targeted only for some: Its really better for light users, and terrible at $1 per Megabyte for high bandwidth customers.
