Virgin Mobile USA provides wireless communications services using the nationwide Sprint PCS network. They specialize in offering prepaid, or pay-as-you-go, services that are mostly targeted towards youth. To attract this demographic, they offer their customers flexible terms, easy to comprehend pricing, fashionable handsets and relevant mobile data and entertainment content. By offering their products and services on a per-minute basis, or on a monthly basis for specified quantities, customers can purchase blocks of minutes without having to enter into long-term contracts or commitments. Additionally, Virgin Mobile appeals to the budget conscious youth by asserting that they have no hidden fees, no monthly bills, and no contracts to sign, leaving the customer as the one who controls the phone instead of the carrier.
