    no. You can't. Virgin mobile doesn't use sim cards. Also you shouldn't be talking about tits when you're on VIRGIN mobile

    Well, it depends on a bunch of factors, I think.
    First of all, since Virgin is an MVNO (it's service is provided by existing larger carriers), it's spectrum changes with each country, so it's possible that yours may be GSM.
    Also, it depends on whether or not your phone is unlocked.
    If you're planning on buying an iPhone 3G, you cannot unlock it yet (well, you could use a shady *SIM solution, but you'll get in legal trouble).
    If and when there is an unlock, and if Virgin service is provided by a GSM carrier in your country, it's possible that you'll be able to use your SIM.
