The D3 won't ever go onto Virgin. Virgin uses Sprint's network which is CDMA like VZW but the D3 is locked to VZW. Now you "unlock" a D3 but that means the SIM card which may allow it to work on GSM networks in other parts of the world. Normally it won't work on any domestic GSM networks. so sorry a D3 isn't really usable for anything but VZW.
