    Do the Virgin Mobile Prepaids use the sprint network and would that
    include the same network that handles Nextel?
    Thinking about getting a phone in the Vero Beach,Fl area
    TIA

    Virgin mobile does resell for sprint, yes.

    Nextel phones use a different set of frequencies and different
    technologies (ie iden vs cdma) they are now under the same company but,
    different networks.

    JoshIII adds:
    Sprint customers are allowed to roam on other CDMA
    networks when Sprint signals are not present.

    Virgin Mobile (prepaid) customers are not allowed
    to roam, and can only use the Sprint network, which
    has rural area coverage issues.

    If you plan to stay near interstate highways and cities
    all the time, Virgin Mobile will work nicely.

    If you live out in the boonies, well, it would
    suffice to say you need to do some more
    shopping.

    Page Plus Cellular (prepaid) uses the Verizon network,
    and can be activated using any deactivated Verizon
    phone or even "Inpulse" brand phones available
    at Walmart starting at $50.

    Good luck!
