Yes since they are still the same company and provider. The issue is virgin mobile is a crap phone and has bad service. :P not worth the money whatsoever.

Yes definitely I'm sure you could, but when you go to USA I'm sure the actual plan might change MAYBE because they seem to have different better LTE down there, I don't know why. Lucky them I guess haha, and they usually have bigger plans to choose.

No. While they share the same name, they are NOT the same company. The name is licensed from the Virgin Group. Sprint holds the license in the US and Bell Mobility in Canada. The two companies use entirely different networks and the phones are incompatible. You can buy a Virgin phone in Canada and get it unlocked to use on AT&T, T-Mobile, Simple Mobile, Net 10 or any other GSM carrier.
