Sprint today unveiled plans for the fourth leg of its prepaid service reorganization. Common Cents Mobile service will be available at Walmart stores on May 15. The prepaid service offers $0.07 calling minutes and $0.07 text messages. Sprint also says the service will round down minutes, so after the first minute customers will only be charged when they have talked a full minute. Talk for 1:31 and you only get charged for one minute. Phones for the new prepaid service will be simple calling devices like the Samsung M340. In addition to refill cards, which expire within 30 or 60 days depending on the level of purchase, customers can also buy unlimited messaging at $20 per month. The prepaid service will also offer data for eligible phones at $1 per megabyte.

Stop the immature bashing....

Before all you Pre-Paid and Sprint basher flap you tongues and fingers around, no one rounds down the minute, no one.
Common Cents is doing a very nice thing. Rounding down the minute instead of rounding it up gives customers the most "blood from a stone" so to say. $.07 cents/minute is nothing to sneeze at either. This is better than Tracfone, NET10, and all the other pre-paid providers.
One day when you are strapped for money and need to cut back, take a hard look at the alternatives, this one is a good start!!!!!!! Wink

Are you being ironic, or do you not know what you are talking about?

Prepaid has long been a ridiculously over-marked product. Congrats to Sprint being a forerunner.

Sounds like you are probably an ever popular Sprint basher... just wait, your c...
