iPhone use with SIM only?

  Dalglish2 10:18 09 May 2009

I have a Virgin mobile simcard which I would like to transfer into an unlocked iPhone - is this possible to do bearingin mind the iPhone maskes use of GSM radio band?
If not, which pay as you go sims are available that will work with the iphone?
Many thanks

Why not try it and see, you won't break either device trying...

If the sim card has the number/letter 3G in the last four numbers on the card? then it should work with Gsm. My daughter uses o2 pay as you go sim card with the 3G suffix in her iphone.
