Have anyone tried to activate a sprint phone on virgin since virgin runs off sprint the reason i ask is because boost works on nextel and inpluse works on any verizon phones

well ill answer ur question since its rare to get an answer w/out someone disrespecting someone,

i dont think you can activate a sprint phone on virgin mobile even if they use the same network because virgin mobile uses a propietary software on their phones and they offer different content from sprint and i dont think virgin mobile uses sprints ESN(electronic serial number, every CDMA phone has a unique ESN) and when you activate a phone for Virgin Mobile, that ESN must be in their database and if its sprint, that ESN will be a foreign ESN and it will not work in Virgin Mobile's system and vice versa.,

may i ask y did u wanted to know if u can activate a sprint phone on virgin mobile?
