Sprint has decided to kill off its Common Sense pre-paid service in May, and will merge it with Virgin Mobile USA's payLo service. "Common Cents as you may recall was a brand limited to Wal-Mart and was never rolled out nationally," wrote Sprint spokeswoman Janye Wallace in an email to FierceWireless. "As payLo is targeted at the same 'basic talker,' we've opted to make this transition. Current Common Cents customers need not make any change, but will now have access to more options for plans and handsets under payLo as well. Common Cents is due to move out of Wal-Mart in mid-May; those pegs will be taken over by Virgin Mobile's Beyond Talk plans which have already seen solid success in Wal-Mart." Common Cents was launched by Sprint less than a year ago. It also operates the Boost Mobile pre-paid brand.
