    after the announcement about virgin mobile carrying the iphone 4 and 4s i was wondering if an unlocked 3gs will work as well(since it is cheaper to buy). if so how could i do this

    Nope, virgin is CDMA and 3GS is GSM so it won't be compatible unfortunately

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Can you use a GSM only phone on a CDMA network?
    There's your answer.

    People should use common sense, Virgin Mobile isnt going to let you have a $35 iPhone plan without buying there overpriced Virgin Mobile iPhone. :D

    Everyone wants to jump ship, but just wait they will raise there prices as they have done before, there starting to push everyone off that $25 Plan.:rolleyes:

    What's an 'overpriced Virgin Mobile iPhone'? It's just the unlocked price for the iPhone. And the plan pricing is actually decreasing. If you signup for Auto Pay you'll get $5 off of whatever Beyond Talk plan you pick. So you can own an iPhone 4s with service for $30 a month.

    Pays to be naive and dis-informed, huh?
