    No, and even if you could, it would only be compatible with about 10-20% of the verizon network.

    It is possible, if you can get the right p ople with Verizon, & u can flash the ROM, but like Saw11_2000 said, u could'nt use all of Verizon's coverage because most of VZ is on a different frequency.

    I remember hearing someone say on here that they activated a Virgin phone on Verizon Wireless just to prove that it could be done, but I forget their username. I have no idea how they did it, but I believe it is possible to do so. Oh, and Virgin is CDMA in the US and Canada. In the UK and Australia its GSM.

    Yes Virgin Mobile is CDMA..

    my one question to the starter..why would you want a virgin mobile phone on verizon anyway, it wouldn't function right at all, might as well get the audiovox 8910 from verizon if you want pratically the same thing.

    Virgin is CDMA
    and Verizon is CDMA

    BUT!
    The V7, I believe is about the same retail from Verizon (might have risen)
    AND Virgin uses the CDMA 1900 mhz EXCLUSIVELY on their version of hte V7, as the first replier stated
    And Verizon is 90% CDMA 800mhz... meaning there is an incompatibility between networks.
