How to release IMEI after leaving Virgin?

I recently left Virgin Mobile and transfered my number to AT&T. When my number was transfered, my Virgin Mobile account was deactivated. My iPhone 8 Plus, which I purchased through Virgin Mobile shows the IMEI is still registered to Virgin Mobile and will not work with any other carrier. How do I get the IMEI released so I can use the phone with another carrier?

Hey there, gobears1! Virgin Mobile will assist with unlocking a device under the following circumstances:

  • The device has not been reported as lost or stolen or otherwise flagged as ineligible to be unlocked
  • The device has been active on the associated account for at least 12 months with the account active at that time

If you believe you meet the above requirements and would like to request that your DSU-capable device be unlocked, contact Virgin Mobile Customer Care by dialing 1-888-322-1122
