If Apple sells unlocked iphone 5, can i activate one on virgin mobile?

There are rumors that Apple will sell unlocked iphone 5's both CDMA and GSM versions, would I be able to activate one on virgin mobile usa?

Yes, of course.
good luck with the CDMA thing, however, as that technology was abandoned years ago!

NO, VM cant support the iphone 5.

CDMA, doubt that & even so that's usually up to the carrier in question.
GSM, definitely. Just a matter of when.

A GSM model will not work on Virgin Mobile's CDMA network.

I think the 1st answerer got CDMA confused with TDMA though, as CDMA is still very much in use today.
