IPHONE HAS TWO MODELS ONE OF THEM DOES NOT HAVE THE QUALCOM CDMA MODEM.

COULD SOMEONE FROM VIRGIN PLEASE ANSWER THE ORIGINAL POSTERS QUESTION?

IT'S A VERY SIMPLE STRAIT FORWARD QUESTION. IN ORDER TO WORK ON THE SPRINT/VERIZON NETWORK YOU NEED THE CDMA MODEL.

THIS STILL LEAVES THE QUESTION OF WHETHER THE VIRGIN PHONE WILL BE UNLOCKED FOR USE ON A GSM NETWORK SUCH AS AT&T, TMOBILE OR MORE IMPORTANTLY INTERNATIONALLY WHERE GSM NETWORKS MIGHT BE USED.

CAN I GET THIS ANSWERED BY SOMEONE WITH VIRGIN?

WILL THE PHONE BE UNLOCKED FOR GSM AND CDMA NETWORKS?

I have just received my ordered Iphone 6 and ported my number to Inner circle plan. 

I am a frequesnt global traveler so have follwing question - 

1. Can I get my iphone6 unlock?

2. Will it work on other GSM networks because I need to use other countries SIM cards while being out of USA?

3. After unlocking (and coming back to USA) will I be able to use Virgin Mobile Inner circle (my existing plan) with my iphone.

6. Does the Iphone6 have inbuilt sim card or the removable Installed sim card?

7. If Yes, can the sim card work on another iphone.

Hi Eve-Lin!

Our devices will continue to work normally after being unlocked, so you'll not be able to tell one from the other. If you need an extra assurance, you may send us your device IMEI number on a private message, so we can check. We'll be glad to help.

I am following! Would like to know that too! I called VM yesterday to unlock my phone in order to use it in Europe . They said it is unlocked now, but won't know until I am in Europe I guess. How can I be sure that it is unlocked???
Please help!

The unlock will be both domestic and international and thus should work on any domestic or international carrier provided it has the required bands.

There is one caveat and that is some MVNOs have their own whitelisting rules.

After Unlocking from Virgin Mobile, Will it support only CDMA? or Will it support both GSM and CDMA?

I've been asking this question on VM's twitter account. They refuse to answer whether the gsm slot can be unlocked if they unlock an iPhone after 14 days on inner circle. Can you reconfirm that it will be possible to unlock the GSM?

It depends on whether you buy the phone through Virgin Mobile or its partnership with Apple.  If that is the case, it will be unlocked (DSU and ISU) on request after 14 days.

If it is a BYOD, then Virgin Mobile cannot unlock it.

VM, you really need to stop being evasive.  Will it work., REGARDLESS of where you buy the phone.  You need to start supporting your customers and not just your business partners.
