Default Can I use MT on another prepaid carrier?

The title says it all... I am just about at my wit's end with Virgin Mobile. I've had VM for 4 years and their cell service itself has always been great. But every month when I go to their website to pay my bill, or when I want to switch to a different plan, it's a royal f*#king headache. Calling their so-called "customer service" is a joke too. After about 10 minutes of trying to bypass the stupid voice-prompt crap so I can talk to an actual person (even if it's someone whose primary language is NOT English...) I'm lucky if I can accomplish what I set out to do in the first place.

(Thus concludes my VM rant...)

Anyway, I have a family member with service on another prepaid carrier who can add me as a 2nd line for $15/mo. Problem is, I've only had my Triumph for less than 4 months, I actually DO like this phone (believe it or not), and I can't afford to purchase another phone right now.

I have Googled around a bit but can't come up with anything other than these stupid services that want to unlock your phone for a fee. So I am asking here, does anyone know if the MT can be used on another carrier? If so, what kind of headaches am I in for in trying to get that done? And since my Google-fu has mostly failed me, if anyone can steer me in the right direction that would be most awesome.

In case it matters, I am looking at switching to Cricket Wireless. I don't know what kind of technology their network uses compared to VM, so for all I know my Triumph might not even work on their network.

You are SOL even if they could flash it to cricket you most likely would only have voice and no data service

Guess I'll tough it out for now :-\ VM's service in my area is quite fine. My problem is with their non-English-speaking Customer Service. I don't have to deal with them very often so I'll manage

I have the same problem as you. Last time I spoke with VM customer service I asked if I have problems with my MT, if I can just take it to a sprint store? They said yes I could do that. So thats what I will be doing with all my other proeblems in the future.

People have flashed Sprint phones onto PagePlus, but I've no idea if the Triumph would be an easy candidate for this.
