I suggest that you let the rest of your support team know so that they dont keep telling people it will work.  Well I guess time to find a new provider

Here is the actual situation.

 

The phone you have can indeed work here.

 

The question is whether Virgin Mobile will permit it to be activated on the promotional plan.

 

If it does not pass the checker you will not be able to use it on that plan unless Virgin Mobile decides to whitelist it.

 

So the answer is, even if you had the sim right now, you could not activate it on that plan.

 

There is no way to know if Virgin Mobile will decide to whitelist your IMEI or not.

Just frustrating when one of Virgin's reps says it will work when I called thiem this afternoon and they will send SIM and then on here they say it will not work.  Oh well, time to move on.  Was going to move 8 lines over here, but I guess that will not happen.

A sprint-whitelisted phone, that is unactivated will be able to be activated on VM.

When is it really going to be ship? I had a chat on your facebook page and Jeff told me that you guys are shipping it on 10/29?! That freaking long. I thought this was a one week and easy way to get the phone. I guess not. I'm so dissapointed. If it doesnt come by 10/6, I might just have to cancel it.

I ordered my the iPhone 8 on 9/26 to take advantage of the inner circle promotion of 12 months for $1.  Based on the information here, my phone should ship by 10/6?  It also states in another post on this feed that someone talking to support on FB said the orders won't be shipped until 10/29!  Given that we must have the phone activated within 30 days of order to qualify for the promotional pricing that is concerning!  I can't wait this long for the phone than be told I can't participate in the promotion because too much time has elapsed from order to activation and it wasn't even my issue but rather a carrier issue with fulfilling orders.  Hopefully, this is being considered with regard to those waiting on their phones.  According to the status, mine is on "fulfillment-hold" with no further information on what that means or what the estimated fulfillment date will actually be.  I also have a $738 pending hold on funds in my bank, so more communication from VM on when the device will ship would really be helpful in these situations.
