Can I use the iPhone with Assurance Wireless?

I may be getting assurance wireless and in the FAQ's it has
Q:Can I use any Virgin Mobile phone with my Assurance Wireless account?
A:Selected Virgin Mobile phones may be used with an Assurance Wireless account excluding the Party Animal, Super Model, Blackberry® and Android™models. However, for the best customer experience we encourage you to use the handset sent to you by Assurance Wireless.

That is the exact wording. The iPhone doesn't fall under any of those categories so I was wondering if anyone KNOWS if the iPhone would work because the last thing I want is to spend 600 dollars on a phone and have it not work. And don't say anything about how if I need Assurance Wireless, I shouldn't be getting an iPhone. We qualify because my parents don't have a job with a steady and definite income.

I wouldn't think Assurance wireless wants you to be getting iPhones --- just stick with a nice android.

You could try swapping phones online at virgin mobile USA. I think if the phones serial (MEDI) begins with: 26843, that it can be used with the PayLo phone plan (Assurance Wireless).
