    Hi
    Please someone correct me since I am a newbie....

    If I have a Pearl 8130 (CDMA..any carrier) and I want to go with Virgin Mobile;
    would I simply load it up with the OS from virgin mobile?


    If I call Virgin mobile would this phone work properly on their network.
    Or is there something else to do?

    The CDMA devices are not locked but it is up to the carrier if they will accept a device they did not sell.

    Virgin Mobile is a reseller of Bell services, not a carrier in their own rights. Odds are pretty good, unless you buy into their contract and device, they will not be interested in carrying you as a pre-paid customer.
