Buy a VM phone, and then sell it and keep using my old phone ?

Can I buy a VM phone with my account balance which is pretty large, and keep using my old phone and just sell the new phone ? IF SO, could the new phone work on any carrier or just or just needs to be sold to another person who uses VM as their carrier ? Is this possible to do ?

Thank you Green...to be clear, I can buy some certain phone(s) with my account balance, keep using my old phone, and turn around and sell the new one immediately, BUT for one year it will only work if the buyer has a VM account .... Correct ? After a year that "new" phone will work through any carrier....do I have that all correct ?? Thank you.
