    It won't be possible.
    Not the same technology... Verizon is cdma and Virgin is gsm/hspa

    Actually Zadigre, in his case, Virgin is CDMA. Virgin Mobile USA is a Sprint MVNO.

    OP: Aside from the fact it involves PRL (Preferred Roaming List) flashing, I have pretty much zero clue on what else you need to do, Canadian carriers are phasing out CDMA. Sorry and good luck.

    Yeah, I'm not too sure what's being asked. If virgin Mobile USA is on the Sprint network, I don't think it would be very easy to get it on the Verizon network. Plus as far as I know straight talk runs on T-Mobile and AT&T networks which each run different variants of a completely different technology than Sprint and Verizon. So no. That is the answer I think.

    Verizon and Sprint do not activate each others devices. Would take some hacking by the OP to make it work. Simply put, customer service will not be of any help to the OP.

    While both Verizon and Sprint do use the same cellular technology technology, and Virgin Mobile does use the Sprint network it won't help the OP either.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    Yes, virgin mobile can be used on straight talk. Would require flashing of phone. Hope this can help.
