Sprint is upping the amount it pays to Virgin Mobile USA from $2.50 per new customer to $4.50 per new customer that Virgin Mobile signs up.

I had a terrible experience, primarily with Sprint's network, about 5 years ago. Sprint was the first cell phone company I had and I swore I'd never use them again. So it was AT&T for work and Verizon Wireless for myself. ...
