    Default [Question] does the iphone work with virgin mobile in Canada?

    Newbie here,
    Easy but important question, does the iphone work with virgin mobile in Canada?
    So far one person said yes and another said no.
    It seems virgin mobile phones are CDMA.

    Thanks

    Why don't ask directly to Virgin Mobile?

    Virgin does not offer the iphone as one of their choices of phones so I would suspect they would tell me no even if the iphone could work on their network if unlocked.

    There must be someone out there that has experience with this.

    Thanks.


    PS-who changed my title to my thead?

    just tell them that you bought and unlocked phone in the states (dont even mention its the iPhone) and that you would like to know the frequencies that virgin canada uses to work before opening the phone

    iPhone Frequencies are

    2G network: GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
    3G network: HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100

    so there you go.
    • iPhone 3G: 16GB Black Yellowsn0wed.

    You just answered your own question. The iPhone is GSM. Telus and Bell use CDMA. Rogers and Fido use GSM

    And yes, virgin mobile is CDMA
