I haven't heard of anyone successfully doing so. The closest I've heard of is someone getting a brand-new, non-VM specific iPhone activated on Virgin Mobile service.

Don't know if this article is still current but FYI:

Virgin Mobile does not allow you to bring your own device, per the TOS they require that you use one of their phones.

Its been done with certain Sprint phones, but I believe you have to modify something that isn't technically legal.
