    No, because Virgin Mobile runs on Sprint's network and Sprint is CDMA and thus incompatible with the GSM-only Nexus 4. Your carrier choices are AT&T, T-Mobile or any MVNO that rides on their airwaves. Verizon, Sprint, Boost, MetroPCS, Virgin Mobile, etc. users need not apply at this time.

    Thanks for the DETAILED response. I didn't realize that Virgin Mobile utilized sprints network

    Virgin and Boost are both prepaid carriers that are owned and operated by Sprint.

    Virgin mobile would be a waste to have this phone on... 35 dollars for 350 minutes and unlimited text and data...but the data is the left-overs of Sprints 3G which is unbearably slow (At least here in Southern California) it's so bad that I can't even check facebook without devoting a significant amount of time and battery waiting for it to load. Tmobiles 30$ plan is so much better.

    Bilago, I had Virgin Mobile before switching to T-Mobile and Virgin Mobile is NOT that bad. At least in my area. My current T-Mobile service is not impressive next to my previous Virgin Mobile service. They're about the same, only one cost me half as much.

    Well you are the lucky one then. I have 5 bars 3g, but I can hardly do anything that requires bandwidth.

    Indeed. Good clarification. This discussion only pertains to Virgin USA, which is a CDMA carrier. Virgin in other countries is usually GSM.

    Well my Virgin mobile plan ends today. I have made the decision to save the 35 dollars and be phone-less until I receive the N4. If only my Optimus V had enough storage to have google maps cached so I can still use the GPS in the meantime. :-P
