I would have thought it would but no guarantee.

When I purchased my T-Mobile phone they told me that Orange and Virgin SIM cards would not work, but they sure did!

All EE, T-Mobile, Orange and Virgin phones I've had have worked with each others SIM but I cannot guarantee any phone was originally with Virgin, if you know what I mean.

Virgin are not the cheapest to unlock either, I just tried to get a Blackberry unlocked from Virgin using the cheap 99p codes on Ebay. They have done thousands, but because it was Virgin they said they could not do it as it was not on their database. :(

You could always root and unlock it? Search xda developers - my last comment was flagged as tried to submit a link to thread!

Aren't BB's free to unlock. I use to unlock dozens for free with a calculator.

I guess it doesn't work it the newer models? :(

I think they are, a bit like the old Nokias from years ago. But Virgin can be funny to get the codes for, hence why it has to be a hardwired unlock which costs silly shop prices.

I think it is just pot luck really, some Virgin phones may be easier to unlock than others.

It would void the warranty, but on some phones it's quite easy to revert back to stock and remove any trace. You'd have to read up and see. I've done this on a few phones and never had any problems, and have never had cause to claim on warranty either. I work on principle that if electronics are going to fail (for warranty covered parts) they will do so in first few months.

I root, install custom firmware and unlock on phones and tablets as it usually makes them faster and you get latest updates.

I'd imagine a Z2 on Virgin would work with T-Mobile. Bought an S3 on Virgin last week off ebay and put my T-Mobile sim in without thinking about it and worked fine :).
