hi guys, just a bit of advice really, i am currently on a pay monthly deal and have around 11 months left on my contract.
I have the htc desire and wanted to get either an iphone 3gs or an iphone , i know virgin mobile do not do any of these phones at present, if i was to buy either of these phones from ebay and the phone was unlocked if i was to put my virgin mobile pay monthly sim into it would this work or would it not??

If you search the Forum there are many threads relating to iPhones so it goes without saying that yes you can use a Virgin SIM in an unlocked iPhone.

thanks again for your help, but i think what i am unsure of is if i plug my registered sim card from my htc desire into an iphone it will just work, their is nothing else that i need to do???

There's nothing you need to do, I use a 3GS iPhone with my Virgin SIM. You will need to watch out as the iPhone uses up a lot of cellular data even when you're not accessing the web so be aware of that, and switch off that functionality if you're using Wi-fi at home/work.

In that case you will be fine, I have that too but keep it switched off and only turn it on when I need to access the web when I'm out and about. I can't access it currently, but that's another story.
Another thing I've had problems with is MMS, I've had intermittent access and as I can't get to the APN settings on my iPhone I can't do anything about it but it's no great loss to me so I haven't investigated further.
All that aside, get your iPhone put your VM SIM in and away you go.

"well i have a data limit of 1.5gb per month so should be ok that shouldn't it?"
Virgin only offers 1gb a month on contracts, sim only and payg
