    will my phone work with virgin mobile? iphone 6s plus 1634. i think it will work since the 1634 works on any carrier. but a couple months ago i switched to sprints free unlimited plan and it didn't work properly. apple replaced my phone twice but it didn't work, so its not the phones problem. i think it had something to do to it being the free unlimited plan. but will it work with virgin mobile? does anyone have a 6s plus 1634 on virgin mobile and can confirm it works. thanks

    Aside from it being able to technically support a particular network/carrier, the phone needs to be unlocked as well, and allowed on the particular carrier as some have some requirements/restrictions I believe.

    The only thing I can tell you and which you may not be aware of is this: Virign Mobile is a brand owned by Sprint. Therefore the network will be Sprint's network.

    And you said it wasn't working on Sprint…

    i am aware of that but apple says it is supposed to work and virgin mobile says the same. i think it didn't work at sprint because it was free unlimited but i'm not sure
