Sprint -Virgin Same network?
I know this is probably a stupid question, but since it is Virgin ( I think) that uses Sprints network will it be possible to get an unlocked phone and set the SIM up for Virgin mobile on Sprint? Not sure I would want to do this for various reason...but was curious.

No, at mentioned even though the phone is technically capable they won't allow it on the network. Just like there was nothing technically preventing the Verizon iPhone from working on sprint, they just wouldn't allow it. Also keep in mind with virgin you get no roaming so you only have native sprint coverage.

Virgin Mobile is an MVNO operating on Sprint's network. Like others have said, you'll only get native Sprint coverage, no roaming.
Furthermore, Virgin Mobile will not activate a device that is not Virgin Mobile branded. They have a no BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy.
There's also Straight Talk, also on the AT&T network, but this one is slightly more complicated.
