I do read the financial news. Every day. Swapping post paid customers for pre paid (Boost) is not a sustainable business model. Sprint has already tried to sell off what remains of Nextel. No takers.
Buying Virgin Mobile gives them access to more pre paid business. That is 180 degress different than the solid Nextel business they used to have.
