    I have a Current Virgin Mobile Account.... I want to buy a SPRINT Iphone 5 on EBAY, and take my Current Simm (Virgin Mobile) and plug it into the Sprint Phone and use in on my Virgin Mobile Contract...

    From what I understood on HowardForums last time I checked, the only phones that can possibly work on Virgin Mobile are Virgin Mobile branded phones.

    I'd check them out though. Google HowardForums Virgin Mobile USA and see if there have been any changes to their terms of service to allow Sprint phones.

    No, there hasn't! I saw someone else asking this on the Sprint forums just recently and a rep said no, they couldn't do it.

    It may change in the future, but at this time, won't work.

    Oof, that sucks :(

    OP: if you are already willing to pay a higher unsubsidized price on eBay for an iPhone 5, why not wait until black friday and snag a Virgin Mobile iPhone 5 for a big discount like they did last year?

    No You would have to unlock the Sprint phone first and Sprint does not under any circumstance allow domestic unlocks of it's phones. Only international.
